Daimajin - Vol. 2: Wrath of Daimajin (1999)

"For most of the running time of this third installment, the samurai fights seem to pile on breathlessly, and the film operates as a straight-ahead actioner."

What Killed the Mega Beasts (2002)

"Discovery Channel has clearly run out of cool primeval monsters to throw on screen, so now What Killed the Mega Beasts is stuck with something that seems to have walked out of a Bert I. Gordon 1950s b-movie."
