THE PLOT:

A archeological team uncovers prove that the Hindu God Garuda existed. Which prompts the Thai Government to send in an elite team that takes out violent Gods. Good thing to as Garuda proves to himself violent as he attacks the team and the soldiers and this is one God like they ever faced before.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

First of all I got to comment the Thai for such great creature effects in this one. I don't know what their budget was but they used it well. The CG is better then some American monster movies. However the bad part of the movie, I think we all could have done with the bigotry in this. If this is how some Thai think about "foreigners" and "half-Breeds" then they need to wise up and learn that this is one world and ONE RACE, the human race. The sooner people realize that the better off we as a world we be. But other then that the story worked, the amazing creature effects makes it worth watching 8 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I have to agree with Zedd on this, I loved the effects and hated the bigotry. I think the bigotry thing got on my nerves more then it did Zedd. I have one predigests and that is I hate, hate. If there is nothing to fear but fear itself, then I say there is nothing to hate but hate itself. 7 STARS for the movie.

ON THE POSTIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (The story about a rogue God terrorizing the city works.)
+ CAST (The cast does do a good job.)
+ DUBBING (The dubbing is great.)
+ CG EFFECTS (Garuda and Nagga look so real, it's scary.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- RACISM (I didn't like some of the characters Racism.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't big with giant Gods rampaging all over town, then this isn't for you.)
