Editorial Reviews

On a mountaintop in Japan rests a giant stone statue. Evildoers beware, for whenevever the oppressed cry to the heavens for salvation and innocent lives are threatened the stone champion of justice will awaken and punish those who do not believe in his power. He is the spirit of vengeance, and the wrath of God given form.

Customer Reviews

The storylines, while simple, are effective and well acted.

I just got this three disc set of DVD's and I must say that I am extremely impressed. The ADV transfers are sharp and clear with the sound quality being very good as well. The subtitles are also clear and easy to read. As for the movies, they are in my opinion the greatest Japanese monster films ever made. The storylines, while simple, are effective and well acted. The special effects are incredible, with most of them holding up to and surpassing today's standard SciFi fest. ADV has also put together an impressive package here, featuring 3 DVD's for less than the price of two of the VHS editions, removeable subtitles, chapter selections, and some of the most creative and effective cover art ever brought to a Japanese SciFi film release. Overall, wonderful films that are finally getting their due by being released to DVD.

I bought this DVD set on a whim after the interesting cover design caught my eye. My son is a big Godzilla fan, which makes me a big Godzilla fan, and I have always been a samurai movie addict, so the combination intrigued me. I was presently surprised by the quality of all three films. These are not the happy monster sock `em up that Godzilla had become in the same time period as these were made. These are intelligent, serious movies - which are quite impossible to describe without making them sound silly.
Daimajin is this giant stone statue of some sort of warrior, which is protector of the feudal peasentry of its surrounding domain. It is described in the three movies as a kind of vengeful spirit trapped in stone, and as a god a la King Kong. Whichever incarnation is easiest to accept, I guess is left up to the viewer.
The plot of all three movies moves in the same structure. There is trouble in paradise, someone warns the bad guys they are going to incur the anger of Daimajin, bad guys don't listen and do really bad things to the peasents, tearful peasent offers to sacrifice self to Daimajin if he will set things right, and finally, Daimajin awakes and stomps the baddies in a major way.
However, each movie IS different. They are not traditional sequels of each other. If you can think of how the 60's Godzillas are not at all referred to by the 90's Godzillas, that's the way these go. Each one is a stand alone story.
DAIMAJIN - Basically an intro to the saga, involving peasents slaving away at hard labor for a thankless daimyo (feudal lord). When a priestess warns them about Daimajin, the daimyo decides to set the peasents straight by chiselling away at the statue. BIG mistake.

Format: DVD
Like Wagner's "Complete Ring Cycle," one truly needs to view "The Complete Daimajin" to gain a full appreciation of the work. Here, finally, the epic saga is together in a fabulous DVD set.
In what is now a more common practice, all three "Daimajin" movies were made at the same time but were released a year apart. The three stories are not related to each other, except for the mighty Daimajin itself. Always on the side of right, always waiting till the last minute to awaken and seek revenge, Daimajin brings giant stony justice on those who would wrong the innocent.
This series is indeed the gem of the kaiju genre, providing both a good story and quality acting, along with a giant man in a rubber suit destroying things. The special effects are quite good. Actually, everything about this series is quite good. Fans of Japanese Samurai films or monster films cannot go wrong with this set.

Triple feature of the giant Majin, kind of a Japanese version of the Golem. Once evoked, the giant stone statue comes to life, bent on a vengeful rampage. The video quality is beautiful, with sharp contrast and nice color saturation. Much better than the VHS versions I already own. These movies have Japanese language with removable english subtitles. No extras, other than one ersatz "trailer" which is just a promotional short produced by ADV films. The films are on three separate disks, in a special keep-sake box. My favorite is "Wrath of DaiMajin", with a scene right out of "The Ten Commandments", where the Majin parts the waters of a lake. I wish someone could publish the english language versions that were released to television, back in the late 1960's. (Unseen for over 30 years...hint, hint)

Format: DVD
Wow! When I booted the DVD into the player, I was expecting some cheap, Gamera-style kiddyshow typical of 1960's Daiei. What I got was a knock-out, action-packed, blood-filled SFX samurai epic! The effects are truly spectacular, even rivaling the Heisei Godzilla movies (minus Biollante). The first two thirds of the movie might not be exactly enthralling for some kaiju fans, but personally, I thought they were exciting as anything. In the first third, we see a creepy Majin-worshiping ceremony, a cool battle, and and some exciting chase scenes. In the second third, we see more chase scenes, and a few extremely cool torture scenes. However, it's in the third part that the movie really gets down to buisness. Majin awakes, and goes on a rampage destroying everything he sees. The effects were so awesome in this part, that I actually thought they were real for a second! Overall, this is an awesome movie with great effects, terrific plot, and fantastic acting. Daimajin has gotta be one of my favorite monster movies of all time. See it. Or else.
