Storyline

Whatever happened to 8-Man? Why did he suddenly disappear, never to be seen again? This was the question on Sachiko's mind, as she couldn't forget about that fateful day when she learned the truth. When she found out Rachiro Azuma (whom she called Azuma-san) was the 8-Man, Azuma disappeared, never to be seen again...it seemed. She went on with her life, working in Public Relations for the Biotechno Corporation. Times have changed. Crime has a new face and a new mode. Newer technology has become part of the game, but the number one player is still power. Power is what high crime is looking for. So what do you do when the criminals turn into near-invincible cyborgs? The answer: bring back an old cyborg crime fighter, one capable of combatting this new threat. 8-Man returns to the scene, but he (like the scene) has changed. His mind is different, as he has a new host with a different set of priorities. 8-Man's new host is private detective Hazama Itsuru, a hard-nosed, sometimes violent ...

Anime meets Robocop

This film is an excellent action film where you can turn your brain off and just watch as a human turned cyborg goes after a crimelord called the puppetmaster, who uses cyborgs of his own to control the city. Probably the most dimensional character is the washed up football player who has cyborg implants put in that just cause him and his son more trouble.

Some of the English dubbed dialogue was a bit messed up, as it is in many foreign films, but other than that the voices were coherent and the story was as good as an action film could get.
