Cool idea, wish it were feature length...
28 December 2006 | by (St. Louis) – See all my reviews

This is basically a modern day attempt at recreating the 50s and 60s style Kaiju (ie, big monster) movies from Japan through the use of computer animation. For the most part, it works very well, although because the computer models are actually better actors than the real ones in the old movies, it doesn't have a campy feel, more of a serious one.

It's only about 27 minutes, but some places indicate it as being longer. Since it's not that long, there's not much of a setup, basically it's the future, mankind is in space, then all of a sudden, a monster from Mars falls to the surface for reasons that aren't clear. Then there is a short-ish battle between it and a giant robot.

Very neat idea, but suffers from not being longer. Kaiju fans will find it to be a novelty, but most people won't really find it worth a rental...
