looks very weird
I wonder if you are able to create a movie like this without abusing acid tabs...
looks like the inspiration for the characters in monsters vs. aliens
i didn't get the ending.
i watched it in japanese - which i do not understand. tripple weird. i really like that they mixed those completely different styles. i would love to be surprised originally in cinema like that.
- I did too, but w subtitles.Meeklo
the ending was the cherry on top of the overall madness, the scene where the entire family is kicking the red monster's ass was pretty funny, but yeah... NO RELATION WITH THE REST OF THE FILM at all... wow.. talk about random
Big Man fighting in Akihabara was the shit too. That other monster supplexed the Club Sega Arcade building!
DrBombay, those bastards stole an old idea of mine!
- this looks awesome!DrBombay
where can I see the videoMeeklo
- Sorry, the video (and my site) is down for a while. Moving to a new house, with no time over to finish it up until then :/Peter
Is this on DVD? Been wanting to see it for a while.
yeah, I rented it on DVD at the store, under new releases.
I had no idea what I was getting, I just saw the photos in the back of the box, and looked amazing
haha it's so funny. my fav is the farting flower? i don't even know. the fighting scene is soo funny
The thing about Japanese movies is you have to watch them right to left.
I watched this last night on Netflix streaming. straaaaaaaange.
WTF was up with the ending sequence? Did they run out of money for the CGI? Perplexed.
The ending is a representation of the Japans reliance on the United States for their defense. The Red Devil monster is China or maybe North Korea. It is the only "real threat" to Japan (Big Man), and while they see themselves as heroic, they can not stand up the the "Red Devil" alone. Notice that the "Justice" family is all dressed in Red, White, and Blue... They stand for America's involvement in overseas afairs. There is also an American flag waving inside of the court yard of one of the little fake buildings during the sequence, (perhaps an American Embassy). The CGI portions represents Japan's idealistic fantasy while the rubber suit portions represent Japan's stark reality.
The credit roll where the Justice family is all sitting around the table arguing shows how Americans are more concerned about their image and than the actual outcome of any confrontation. Big Man just sits there, uninterested for the most part because Japan could care less about how America handles its affairs as long as they are protected.
- but why did it suddenly shift into bad effects as per their lame Ultraman shows?dopepope

- I don't buy it. I think it had more to do with the main character talking about the new generation had no respect.DrBombay
- That could be true too I guess. Some people say Big Man was killed by the Red Devil and the rubber suit part was his afterlife.full_bleed
I enjoyed it a lot. Those monsters were out there! And I did enjoy the documentary style of the whole thing even tho it was a bit slow at times. The ending was just bizarre. Funny tho. A movie like no other. that's for sure.
The dialogue in this fight scene was hilarious.
since i watched this trailer it has become a sort of mantra that gets stuck in my head "Big Man Japan,Big Man Japan,Big Man Japan,Big Man Japan,Big Man Japan,"
cuz it rhyms
