Bad guys are in trouble now ! - Part 2
28 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the second installment of the Daimajin trilogy although the three stories are not connected.

Daimajin is a talismanic 50 ft stone statue embodied with the spirit of local god. It normally sits idle with a peaceful face, but when the people are oppressed, it wakes up and changes to fierce expression to protect the innocent.

The settings is in samurai era Japan. Country of Chigusa is invaded by the neighboring warlord of Mikoshiba. What the warlord of Mikoshiba doesn't know is that Chigusa is protected by Daimajin. He wreaks havoc on the people of Chigusa until - you guessed it - he pisses off the Daimajin !

Even seen as samurai movie, this movie has one of the best cinematography showing Daiei's experience in making samurai movies. Special effects are one of the best for '60s Japanese movie as well. Kojiro Hongo who was the star of '60s and '90s Gamera series also stars in this movie. Supporting casts are good too, and they deliver superb performance.

The movie is an interesting mixture of samurai and giant monster movie, but it works.

The recent TV mini-series "Daimajin Kanon" is a direct homage to this series and features the Daimajin in modern settings.
