Storyline

Kimika Yoshino returns in this prequel to 'Wizard of Darkness' to play Misa Kuroi before she was famous, or at least before she realized she was a witch. 'Birth of the Wizard' begins in Meiji-era Japan, in a village of former witches and wizards. I say former, because someone seems to have slaughtered them. Skip to the present day, and an archaeologist discovers a mummy from the village. Blissfully unaware that the mummy is, in fact, possessed by an evil spirit (naturally), he runs off, leaving his assistant alone. The mummy comes to life, kills her, and the evil spirit takes over her body. This evil spirit is now searching for Misa, who is protected by Kyle Reese, It is Misa's destiny to defeat this evil spirit, but she needs Saiga's help to do it. Written by Anonymous

This sequel which is really a prequel does a bit better job than the predecessor.
28 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

I thought this film featuring Misa was a bit better than the previous film. It just made little sense, the one thing I would tell anyone watching these films is to start with this one first and then watch the first film. It will clear up a couple of things anyway, though there are still a lot of things about the first one that made absolutely no sense and I am guessing you have to have read the comics upon which these films are based to really get it. This one shows Misa as a girl who is alone. Something is tracking her down and it is not to long before she is running for her life with the aid of this guy who practices magic. Misa does a bit more in this film than the last one, cause in that one her magic was rendered ineffective for most of the movie which makes that film seem like a strange way to begin the series. The sexual aspect that was present in the first film is nonexistent in this one, which does not hurt this one all that much as it really has some good kills to make up for the sex, and quite frankly the sex seemed kind of out of place in that film anyways. The film sort of reminds me of Terminator 2 a bit as they have to keep running from this seemingly unstoppable foe. Really quite action packed right out of the gate, however it does get slower as things are revealed about the strange man aiding Misa and about Misa herself. However, this was welcome as it cleared up some stuff which the first film did not clear up anything. This one has a plot you can follow a lot easier than in the first film. I am hoping the third film brings it all together, but as it is this is a much easier to follow sequel that is a prequel, it also looks more like a movie than the first film. So a step in the right direction.
