I got what I expected, and was sad that was all I got.
9 December 2001 | by (japan) – See all my reviews

As young as I was when I saw this movie, it still felt claustrophobicly cheap. I don't recall if I had seen Dark Hero Guyver before or after this one, but in terms of concept, pace, choreography, and effects, I was much more impressed by the latter. I do remember feeling there was something memorable about the way Irya fought the Zeiram in their first combat, but as rich as the costumes and characters were, they were wasted. Robert Rodriguez' Desperado is less random in killing away potentially interesting characters. Zeiram 2 does not waste time in reducing the principal characters involved to Irya and the Zeiram. The movie is all about Irya's character. Ironically, she was all I was interested in when I saw her on the cover of the videotape--in the end, the movie basically delivered all that I wanted, and I was sad I didn't wish for more.
