Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 02/13/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "This outlandish, wickedly funny, giant monsters-filled, Japanese superhero, faux-documentary surpasses any mockumentary you've ever seen."
New York Times - 05/15/2009
"[A] deadpan mockumentary with a lively sense of the perverse....Part characters study, part media satire and, by its finale, altogether bizarre, BIG MAN JAPAN plays like a quieter, weirder version of HANCOCK."
Hollywood Reporter - 05/15/2009
"Defiantly offbeat...this low-budget comedy is about as cult as they come....Matsumoto nails his premise, finding a perfect balance between deadpan and absurd."
Chicago Sun-Times - 06/24/2009
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The movie, which is very funny in an insidious way, takes the form of a slice-of-life documentary about Daisoto, the latest generation in a Tokyo dynasty of monster killers."
A.V. Club - 07/29/2009
"[The film] gets points for intelligence and imagination, and for a pop-art final sequence that pays tribute to the Ultraman aesthetic..."

Product Description:

An outrageous portrait of a pathetic but truly unique hero. Daisato is entrusted with defending Japan from a host of bizarre monsters by transforming into a stocky, stick-wielding giant several stories high. But while his predecessors were national heroes, he is an outcast among the citizens he protects.
