5.0 out of 5 stars A walk into the world of the imagination Dec 12 2008
By A. Reese - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
When I first watched The Great Yokia War, I got to thinking about how few movies are made anymore with such a strong sense of good and evil or with such a childlike wonder with what is possible. I REALLY got into it. I whipped out the Lightsaber app on my iphone and was wielding it to help the kirin rider prevail. (There was a shameless product plug for Kirin Beer, but it was worked in comedically, and actually made the movie more endearing.) This movie was a walk into the world of the imagination, when we let go of the world we walk as a matter of daily course. It reminded me of reading The Book of Lost Things: A Novel, or watching Pan's Labyrinth, or the The Fountain (Widescreen Edition). This film is a welcomed escape from a droll and oppressive world.

5.0 out of 5 stars great Jan. 6 2007

i give this movie two thumbs up! It's a story about the creatures of Japan's folklore. (And it wasn't anything like the "Never Ending Story") The only way "it was like a kid's movie", or the Never Ending Story, is because the main character is a child... i believe this movie is for you if you take any interest in Japan's culture.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fans Only Sept. 21 2008
By Tau Ceti - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Best to know a lil about Japanese mythology, to understand this movie. Feels like it's a step or two up from a Power Rangers movie in production value. Unlike corny movies made in America, the Japanese tend to take their acting seriously in their movies even the corny ones. If you know the folklore about the MANY Japanese spirits in this movie, you will have a big advantage over the casual viewer. The price is pretty steep, but if you are a diehard fan of Japanese live action and Folklore get it. Everyone else I suggest renting it first.

I recommend The Great Yokai War for anyone who enjoys a good story. I found the plot easy to follow and the characters believeable (after all, even fantasy has to make sense).

4.0 out of 5 stars the envy of monsters everywhere Oct. 27 2008

When Kirin Rider gets his chance to protect humanity, he does so at the cost of the viewer's senses.
