Film: Negadon The Monster From Mars
Guess "Miroku 2" doesn't make for a good movie title. Negadon, The Monster from Mars
is a short CGI film
that pays homage
to the Giant Monster
movies from the 1960s. This includes having a grainy-old-film look, spaceships that look like toy models, etc. Despite this, its story is played completely straight and the quality of the graphics is very high.
The story takes place in the future, when humanity begins exploring Mars for colonization. They find a strange object there and, of course
, bring it back to Earth, where it turns into a monster and starts destroying Tokyo. A scientist named Dr. Narasaki, who has been in seclusion ever since the accidental death of his small daughter, is stirred into action and brings his old giant robot
out of storage to fight this menace.
