When a cargo-spaceship crash-lands on the streets of Tokyo, it unleashes a giant monster from Mars. It is up to Dr. Narasaki and his mecha robot Miroku to save the Earth.
Despite being a short, and despite being computer-animated, this is actually a decent entry in the kaiju film library. Why it is short is beyond me, unless it was made that way for a competition (the material could easily be much longer). The animation is surprisingly good, reminding me very much of video scenes from the newer "Resident Evil" games.
Although this film is not going to be a classic in the way the kaiju films of the 50s, 60s and 70s are, it is a touching love letter. It is said to be a celebration o the 50th anniversary of the monster film, by which they clearly mean "Godzilla" (1954). A fitting tribute.
