Big Man Japan
Directed by Hitoshi Matsumoto
BIG MAN JAPAN is an outrageous portrayal of an original superhero. As Big Man Japan, Daisato inherited the role of defending Japan against a host of bizarre monsters. He receives high-voltage electroshocks which transform him into a stocky, stick-wielding giant several stories high. However, where his predecessors were revered as national heroes, he is an outcast among the citizens he protects.

Loved it. Definitely in my top 10 kaiju movies now.
Sure, it takes a while to get going, and it's surreal even for a Kaiju film. But I enjoyed it, a very interesting, almost-realist and modern take on what it's like to have to wake up, get a call, grow large and try and fight monsters for a living.
Wow. If you're getting a little bored due to the slow ramp-up, just fast forward a little until there's more action. Its worth sticking through; I wasn't really sure what this was, but after the end I wanted to know more and maybe even see it again without skipping parts. JAPANESE WEIRDNESS EXTRAVAGANZA KAIJU!
Best Kaiju movie. Ever!
