All Critics (1)

It doesn't even need to throw a giant monster at its plot in order to be completely engaging, beautiful, and emotionally resonant.

Audience Reviews for Daimajin (Majin the Monster of Terror) (The Vengeance of the Monster)

The story may centre around Majin, a huge stone God, but he only comes to life in the very last sections of the film. The rest of the film builds up a human drama that sees an evil warlord take over the rule of a small town. This more humane touch means we are completely invested in the characters, which of course aids our enjoyment of the film as a whole. The film still looks absolutely gorgeous, with beautiful scenery and unrivaled lighting. When the matte painting skies come into play they look like daring artistic visions themselves. I was very impressed by the effects, as they are seamless in their integration with the general footage. Once Majin comes alive it's a brutal sequence that doesn't focus on giving us satisfaction over the destruction of evil. We still fear Majin and understand the kind of pain such drastic measures can result in. Certainly another jewel in the Kaiju crown.
