A little heavy on the CG, I must say. Also, they may as well have called it Godzilla, because that's pretty much what it was.

Reverse Godzilla rather? A giant monster protects a city from a giant robot?

Well, I guess that's not exactly what happens.

From what I understood, the people were using the monster as a power source. After the monster defeated the robot, the monster LEFT. It didn't stay to kill everyone. That kind of makes them the bad guys.

OR DOES IT?!

The reported says that the mini-kaiju produce high voltage when in a good mood. The big kaijuu isn't completely asleep while they use power from him, so could he have been in a good mood, and just not wanted to leave? He wasn't chained up or anything, so with his size, he could have left whenever he wanted. That makes the robot the bad guy.

The monster couldn't move because its energy was being drained. Something went haywire, and they couldn't keep the monster's energy drained.
It just so happened that someone showed up with a mecha unannounced at the same time.

The monster also seemed to have huge stakes driven through parts of it, that's probably how they caught it in the first place.

My guess, is that the monster attacked, they were able to stop it, then they realized how huge of a power source it was, so they used it. Whatever group owns that mech must either, see it as cruelty, or just think such a monster should be dead, instead of being kept alive. Seeing as it broke free due to a malfunction, their worries were justified.

Also, that girl wants the kaiju D.

Really? I thought it looked very impressive. Didn't even come off as looking like CG to me. It reminded me of the technique used to animate the Ohmu in Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind.
