Audience Member A modern take on a low-budget kaiju movie, but it departs too far to feel nostalgia, nor is the story good enough to hold up on its own. The computer animation is fairly poor, and while the monster suit looks really good, it isn't use enough. The characters are dull and often times too silly to fit in with what otherwise is a dramatic story. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member The monster design is alright but the bad cgi and sets make it like you're watching a syfy original movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a very low budget fan-made kaiju movie and it clearly shows. The first thing you notice is the truly awful CGI effects, probably one of the worst examples in a movie I've ever seen. It just looks cheap as hell. The creature looks great but again it is let down by the crappy CGI. Awful acting by the entire cast. The attack sequences by Reigo aren't very good either. Mercifully, this movie only runs to 80 mins which is just as well as I don't think I could have fathomed taking any more punishment from watching it. If you can take this movie as it is and that's a fan-made one you might enjoy it but those expecting a big budget kaiju spectacular are going to be dismayed. Had this movie been done with proper CGI, I'm sure it would have been great Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a very low budget fan-made kaiju movie and it clearly shows.
