This is the freaking post that’s been 3 days in the making. What seemed like a funny idea for a video review ended up being a nightmare. I did manage to finish it though, not to my standards but whatever. I’ll give you a brief review here as I’m not sure how much can actually be had in the video review! HAHA!
This movie wasn’t too bad actually. The acting is well done, the CG is incredible and the idea is very original. I love giant monster flicks and here’s one where you’re following around a giant hero as he goes about his daily life, which sometimes includes fighting completely wacked out giant monsters. The story itself is pretty sad though. Our hero’s life isn’t quite what it should be as the people of Japan don’t really appreciate what he does for them, that and the fact that he doesn’t really seem all that good at it.
There’s plenty of laughs in this one which made up for the overall sadness of his life. I got totally lost at the end of the flick though and if it hadn’t been so weird and funny I would have hated it.
Basically if you love giant monsters than this flick should work out well for you. You’re treated to plenty crazy looking creatures and some really funny exchanges between Big Man Japan and the monsters he must face. I mean, just check out the pic to the right and you’ll get a glimpse of what he’s up against. That alone is worth it.
Check the vid for my epic blockbuster Lego review. I swear I will never do something like that again! HAHA!
