I've watched the trailers for it but haven't seen the movie itself. :D It looked awesome from what little I've seen. :)

Two things I've been wondering about:

Is it considered tokusatsu? Reading the Wikipedia definition and examples it seems like it might be, but the page for the movie doesn't say anything about that.

What the Japanese rating for it? PG-12? Haven't been able to find anything about any rating either.

特撮 just means 'special effects', the wikipedia page notwithstanding. That movie aficionados may say 特撮 as a short form of 'special effects movie' is no reason for other wikipedia pages to adopt that specialized jargon.

Movie ratings in the US (G-PG-PG13-R-NC17) are applied by the MPAA, and are specific to the US. I don't actually know what the Japanese rating system is or even if there is one, but nobody else uses the US system - that's why foreign films are almost always 'not rated' (unless they are dubbed into English and go into a major theatrical release; in that case they go through the same ratings process as domestic films, but the rating is still only meaningful in the US.)
