Wakusei daikaijû Negadon

In the not-too-distant future, Mars is colonized, and when a spaceship returning to Earth crashes in Tokyo, the mysterious cargo it has been carrying turns out to be a slumbering monster, and a mean one. A scientist who abandoned a robot-building project years earlier after a personal tragedy is moved to fire up his dormant invention to do battle with the invader ...

'Wakusei daikaijû Negadon', or 'Negadon: The Monster from Mars', is a computer animated short movie that is homage to the Japanese science fiction films of the 1960s. Negadon looks great, the story is neat and it succeeds in capturing the spirit of movies like Godzilla vs. Monster Zero. It's just a shame the film is not feature length.
