The main attraction for me of Demonbane is certainly conceptual, though the execution was enjoyable, it was the setting that it presented that really appealed to me. It was an excellent and intriguing intermingling of the Cthulhu mythos and giant robot action - the timing of my viewing was also probably quite fortunate in that on Sunday I watched the end of Tenpu Ibun Ayakashi Ayashi (which had some interesting material about wearing gods) and then spent yesterday morning reading all extant material on Hellboy and B.P.R.D.

Original Review (December 2008, see below for later edit):

"Hey, let's buy some guy who can animate a few robot battles with some 3D software.

I guess that's what a planning-session for Demonbane could have been like.

The battles themselves didn't look that bad, but then again: The ridiculous mecha design gets boring and the fights ...
