Daimajin / Return of Daimajin / Daimajin Strikes Again


Daimajin / Return of Daimajin / Daimajin Strikes Again Blu-ray delivers great video and poor audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Set during Japanĺs "Warring States" era, the Daimajin movies told the story of Majin, a giant statue of an angry god that would come to life in times of desperation to punish evildoers. But when Majinĺs rage was unleashed, it could be directed at both the wicked and innocent, alike.

Daimajin / Return of Daimajin / Daimajin Strikes Again Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Rating: 4.0/5

Mill Creek's Daimajin shares a disc with Return of Daimajin but nevertheless fares quite well. The movie doesn't exactly leap off the screen with dazzling colors and eye-catching details, but this is a well-rounded, film-like presentation. Light grain remains, and the transfer presents facial and garment textures with crisp definition, particularly in brighter scenes. Likewise, colors are even and stand out nicely from what are often fairly dark backgrounds; red and peach-colored garb seen on one character appears naturally shaded. Some of the darker scenes go a bit soft and blacks can appear a touch bright. A few random speckles appear over what is an otherwise clean print.

Return of Daimajin
Rating: 4.0/5

Much as the movie is largely identical to its predecessor, so too is Return of Daimajin's Blu-ray transfer. It's a fair image, yielding adequate clothing and facial detail, occasionally good definition on foliage, and only a slightly soft appearance. Colors are rather dim and a touch washed out, but baseline effective in the delivery of natural greens, earthen shades, flesh tones, and blacks. The image retains a very light grain structure and offers no major speckling, banding, blocking, or other negative elements. It's stable but not all that vibrant. It looks fairly good for a smaller and older catalogue title, but reference material it is not.

Daimajin Strikes Again
Rating: 4.0/5

There's little evident difference between Daimajin Strikes Again and the other films in this collection. The image is slightly soft. Light grain remains and the print is very clean. Details are fair, revealing adequate textures in clothes and skin, not to mention Majin's rock and living forms both. Colors range from dim to brilliant; brighter outdoor scenes offer great natural greens and snowy whites, but darker earthen tones are rather bland. Black levels are fair and flesh tones accurate. No banding, blocking, or other negatives are visible. Overall, all three films look rather good on Blu-ray.

Daimajin / Return of Daimajin / Daimajin Strikes Again Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

Rating: 2.0/5

Daimajin's soundtrack struggles out of the gate and never finds much in the way of sonic clarity. Neither the English nor Japanese language DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 lossless soundtracks impress, though both presentations are baseline efficient in supporting the film. The elements can be a bit scratchy, and the Japanese track features an audible hiss underneath the primary elements. Clarity and presence both are lacking in either track. Booms of thunder early on or heavy footfalls and crumbling structures at the end both fail to find much robustness or energy. The English track is a bit quieter and enjoys slightly more raw clarity and sound separation. The Japanese track offers a fuller sound but at the expense of sonic definition; some effects run together, such as music and a waterfall in chapter four. Dialogue comes through clearly in both tracks, however, and remains grounded in the usual front-center portion of the soundstage.

Return of Daimajin
Rating: 2.0/5

There's an obvious distinction between the Japanese and English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 tracks, but neither is really all that good. The English track is puny, to be kind. It's often muffled, hollow, and lacks body, volume, and range. This holds true under every circumstance, be it music, dialogue (which rarely matches up with the subtitles, and the differences are often not even close), or action scenes. On the other hand, the Japanese track offers significantly more heft, better clarity, and a more obvious body to dialogue, music, and action. It's still rather cramped and confined and clarity is only adequate, but the jump in feel is significant. In short, original=better.

Daimajin Strikes Again
Rating: 2.5/5

Daimajin Strikes Again's pair of DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 lossless soundtracks offer a slight improvement. While still underwhelming, the Japanese and English presentations both share a fair amount of heft and body. Details are often crunchy and mushy and absent legitimate clarity, but heavy footsteps, raging waters, and other aggressive sound elements aren't too drastically different under either track. Gunshots are a bit louder in English, however, but music isn't distanced by much difference between the two. The Japanese dialogue is a little quieter, the dubbed English track louder. There's not much difference, but consdiering the generally awful English dub, the original track is the way to go.
