Storyline

An evil warlord invades a peaceful lakeside village during one of their annual festivals. In the course of burning down buildings, executing helpless civilians and generally looting and pillaging, the warlord's men blow up the statue of the village god and sink the pieces deep in the lake. Everything looks hopeless for the people of the village until a strange force from beneath the water's surface begins pulling enemy soldiers to their deaths. Has the local come back for its revenge?

Daimajin of the lake saves the day.
30 August 1999 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

The sleeping Daimajin has moved to an island home and the people under his protection live happily at lakeside. When evil warlords decide its time to subjugate these peaceful neighboring domains they go right for their leaders with some sneaky assassins and a surprise attack. As a demoralizing move they blow up the stone god in his island home. What a bad move that turns out to be. Not the best of the three Daimajins. It's much less beautifully filmed and the story isn't so great. I liked "Return of Daimajin" best because the kids are cute and the cinematographer had the eye of a naturalist.
