Review of 'Negadon: The Monster from Mars'

negadon.jpg In the year 2025 an automated sampling spacecraft returns from Mars and crash lands in the middle of Tokyo releasing a terrifying monster: Negadon! It is up to a scientist suffering from depression over the accidental loss of his daughter and his massive robot to defeat the terrifying invader.

The special effects here are quite remarkable. In the beginning the spacecraft look pretty ropey but when you see people and the rain falling in Tokyo it is really quite impressive. The action sequences are well done if fairly brief.

Interesting story and a bit of fun.
