3.0 out of 5 stars Slice of life with a dash of Kaiju. October 18, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was very differnt from what I was expecting. Instead of a fairly typical Kaiju movie with Something Big tramping over Tokyo we get an interesting, if odd, look at several misfits connected with a prophetic vision that one of them has of a future disaster. More of a character study that an action film. The dream/prophecy sequence of Demeking doing what all Kaiju do was very well done and an interesting looking monster scored for me. There are several indications that the prophecy will arrive. This was based on a Japanese manga or graphic novel and I have no idea if the original story line was continued beyond the stopping point of the film. Worth a look if you know what you're getting into.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different kaiju film with different approach. October 16, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this film with little idea of its content and plot. I have been a kaiju fan for many years. Demeking, in my opinion is a very good film, but quite a different film and a pleasant surprise. I was instantly drawn into its characters. Without going into plot or how the creature is revealed. Demeking is set in the early 70's in Japan. If you are looking for beasts destroying each other in a titanic battle with the military guns blasting, you will not enjoy this film. But, if you can think back when you were a kid and how life was an adventure everyday, then you may just enjoy it.

The title may be misleading and you may be expecting more kaiju from the cover of the dvd, but you can not judge a book by its cover. Others may have different opinions and I would be interested in seeing how others review this film. Simply put, I liked it for what it is and what I never expected.

There is no dubbing, just Japanese audio and English subtitles. The dvd contained the film itself and several Japanese trailers.
Looked clear and crisp upscaled on HDTV.

1.0 out of 5 stars Demeking was anything but a king - waste of time October 27, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
To make this short and sweet - if you want to see a giant monster movie that has monster(s) throughout the film , you better just watch a Godzilla movie. This movie was the pits..absolutely the dullest "monster" movie Ive ever seen
The monster appears once for 5 minutes & if I say anything else about it that might spoil it..anyway youre not missing anything.
When the monster appears it is a GREAT creation but the rest of the movie is ho-hum fast forward. The story has to do with a man waiting for this monster to appear via a prophecy(think Nostradamus)
I didnt find anything interesting at all in this film other than the 5 minutes of monster...
Monster movies sure have gone way downhill since Godzilla has been shelved - & even the Millennium series wasn't as good as the older G films and this made me want to watch Kaiju films from the golden era of monster movies
I really cant recommend this unless you want 90 minutes of what I call 'people scenes' and this monster. Id love a action figure of the monster if nothing else...
Rent it if you're curious..avoid it if youve seen other negative reviews...
100% Blech !
