Movie Reviews

Tetsujin 28 only LOOKS like Gigantor
JACK LOBO | Greenwich,CT USA | 09/14/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Chances are you are a Gigantor fan, deciding whether to get this set or not. This is the complete reworking of the first 26 episodes of Tetsujin 28 before Japan's 27th episode became America's 1st Gigantor episode. In fact they have been reworked so much, that I'm highly dubious they bear any resemblance to the original cartoons that were made. Animation AND story. The studios of Japan were allegedly reluctant to release the first 26 episodes because of very poor quality animation. What they really didn't want us to know, is that the giant robot was originally built to destroy the American forces during World War II, and were fearful of how Americans would react to that premise. In this dvd series that notion is so vaguely mentioned, it's almost not mentioned at all. Well alright it's mentioned but there are no scenes of the tetsujin engaged in combat against U.S. forces. Looking very similar to, but not exactly like Gigantor, the biggest difference between Tetsujin 28 and Gigantor is, where Gigantor is an upbeat adventure where the forces of good and evil are clearly defined (my kind of show) and Gigantor is called upon to save the day, Tetsujin 28 is downbeat drama where good and evil seem to intermix too often, making Tetsujin 28 seem to be the cause of their troubles. I only wish the episodes were upbeat like the catchy military chorus theme song. Great animation and good drama make this set definitely worth a look. The set contains 6 discs not 4 as listed in the product description."
