aka Zero Fighter
5 February 2004 | by (Lansing, MI) – See all my reviews

I first came across this movie several years ago, with the English title of "Zero Fighter." My opinion is, all things considered, it is not a bad war movie. It is one of the first I've seen that tells the tale of WWII from the Japanese side. Of course the special effects were decidedly Japanese, spectacular and pretty obviously faked. Still, they worked to convey the story. I wish I could find this on video tape, but I'm not going to hold my breath.
