Movie Reviews

Monster movie fans, check this out!
Ray Sargent | San Diego, USA | 05/27/2001

"Dark Soldier D is a new breed of Japanese monster movie. It has a totally different style from ordinary Japanese monster movies such as "Godzilla" or "Gamera." A maniac soldier in combat suite VS 50 feet space monsters! This is wired, but interesting attempt. I was really entertained. In the movie, 3 different monsters show up in each 3 episodes. A poor businessman transforms into green gigantic reptile creature in episode1. In episode2, combat suite fights against giant chicken monster. It was very funny image, but why chicken? In episode3, the evil space power possesses onto another combat suit, and it creates a bio-mechanical monster. I enjoyed a variety of monsters. Somehow it reminds me old dynamation creatures which created by Ray Harryhausen. This is dark, but still funny movie. I can't wait to see next episode."
Ouch - very ouch...

"I tell you what folks - I love Godzilla and Specterman as much as the next guy, but this is just brutal. There's no real good guy, everyone is just varying degrees of evil. We have the battlesuit pilot; a drunken, chilly and abusive bastard. The mechanic, who's not a bad guy, but is constantly being wailed on by the aforementioned pilot. And of course, the monsters - an alien substance causes normal people to mutate into odd creatures, including a 50-foot chicken. Yes, he said CHICKEN! With no really likeable characters, and special effects that would make the crew of Dr. Who groan, this was mostly a waste of time and money."
THIS IS NOT ANIME

"This is LIVE action with CGI monsters, so don't expect it to be anime. Like stated elsewhere, there's really no 'good guy' in this three episode flick, just varying degrees of 'bad' and 'badder'. The plot is simple enough but has just enough twisted action for sci-fi fanatics to have a bit of fun distraction. Don't get me wrong; I 'rented' this after reading the reviews, and am looking forward to renting the next episodes - if they're put on DVD."
