If you are into Japanese pop culture, the bizarre sense of humor and the absurdity of Big Man Japan will surely entertain and amuse you. Director, protagonist and famous comedian, Hitoshi Matsumoto, has reinterpreted the familiar path of traditional daikaiju (big monster) pics, creating a mockumentary with CG monster battles and Power Rangers parody. But don’t expect the action and speed of Hollywood super-heroes  movies and of course it’s to be expected that some people will get the joke and some will not.

“A middle-aged slacker living in a rundown, graffiti-ridden slum, Daisoto’s job involves being shocked by bolts of electricity that transform him into a stocky, stick-wielding giant several stories high who is entrusted with defending Japan from a host of bizarre monsters. But while his predecessors were national heroes, he is a pariah among the citizens he protects, who bitterly complain about the noise and destruction of property he causes. And Daisato has his own problems – an agent insistent on branding him with sponsor advertisements, an Alzheimer-afflicted grandfather who transforms into a giant in dirty underwear, and a family who is embarrassed by his often cowardly exploits. A wickedly deadpan spin on the giant Japanese superhero, BIG MAN JAPAN is an outrageous portrait of a pathetic, but truly unique hero.” Magnet’s Six Shooter Film Series
