I just watched "Terror Beneath the Sea" with Sonny Chiba. Whoa, was it a bad movie. Haha. Chiba is a reporter on assignment to witness a new Navy weapon when strange sightings of reptile men occur. The origins of the creatures are discovered to be connected to a very James Bondish villian who never removes his sun glasses. It's up the Chiba, his always screaming girlfriend, an elderly scientist, and the U.S. Navy to save the world. I thought it interesting for a Japanese made film to have such a large western cast. Chiba was the only Japanese main character. The villian, the love interest, scientist and the U.S, Navy of course were all western. Nearly everyone's acting was so over the top. The special effects were typical of the late 60's, early 70's low budget films. Still, I enjoyed watching.
Who ever said you can't buy happiness, wasn't an anime fan.
