Movie Reviews

Variety - 9/10 by Russell EdwardsDecidedly odd, even by Japanese standards, this mockumentary about an electrically charged, skyscraper-high superhero saddled with misfortune, bad press and even worse TV ratings is tears-down-the-face funny and a genuine, jaw-dropping oddity.
Village Voice - 9/10 by Aaron HillisI hurt myself laughing at this amazingly inventive mockumentary, and because it's so good, I refuse to give away much more than an insistent recommendation.
The New York Times - 8/10 by Nathan LeeThe most impressive special effect here is Mr. Matsumoto's hilariously restrained performance, a tour de force of comedic concision in a movie bloated by increasingly surreal developments.
Chicago Reader - 8/10 by J.R. JonesHysterically funny CGI fight sequences, which pit the chubby superhero against a series of creatures so bizarre they'd keep Hieronymus Bosch awake at night.
Los Angeles Times - 7/10 by Michael OrdonaThe film has slow sections that test the viewer's patience. But it also touches on themes of family, heroism and nationalism, and the finale, which has plenty of surprises and rewarding references for fans of the genre, is worth the wait.
Film Threat - 7/10 by Scott MendelsonAwfully funny, with surprisingly potent social commentary just underneath the quirkiness.
Austin Chronicle - 7/10 by Marjorie BaumgartenThe effects are reasonably well-created, though hardly transparent. The last 15 minutes of the film spins out into unimaginable realms. Fans of this kind of stuff will leave smitten; those accompanying them to the theatre will have a pretty good time too.
New York Post - 5/10 by V.A. MusettoAt nearly two hours, Big Man Japan is clever (in a sick sort of way) but overlong. It needs judicious editing -- more mockumentary, fewer superhero antics.
Salon - 4/10 by Andrew O'HehirMatsumoto isn't the first Japanese director to go all meta on the superhero tradition (consider also Takashi Miike's 2004 "Zebraman"), but this work of improbable lunacy may well max out the genre.
New York Daily News - 4/10 by Joe NeumaierWhen a movie is this strange, it's gotta count for something.
