User Reviews

 
This movie is America's best attempt at making a Japanese B cult and in my opinion it is a classic that deserves to be deemed culturally significant.
19 February 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

If you think this film was intended to be in the vain of its animated counterpart then you are clearly wrong as it's true formula can only be found in the filming conventions of most Japanese B movies, for example bad campy acting, simple narrative, bit of kung fu, bit of gore, bit of comedy, lots of dark lighting, rubber costumes coupled with funky man to mutant transformations. One might question the integrity of the acting or dialog but the fact is the cast were directed to cheese it up so as to fit into its genre and eastern heritage. The fighting scenes are a bit over the top but this is what Japanese B cult is all about. Dyn-o-mite!!!
