Well written genre hybrid
29 December 2003 | by (Mountains of Madness) – See all my reviews

"Rapeman 1" is a well written and sweet genre hybrid that mainstreams the original manga's more controversial elements and delivers a quality piece of entertainment.

Rapeman and his uncle run Rapeman Services, a company catering to wronged, vengeance-seeking spouses and spurned lovers.

In this outing, Rapeman and Uncle become embroiled in a political party's attempt to disgrace an opponent.

Rapeman, a school teacher by day, rapist by night, is also a detective and has a strong sense of justice.

"Righting wrongs through penetration" is the company motto and many wrongs are righted here.

Shot on video and given the "film look" treatment, this fascinating genre hybrid is skilfully directed and nicely scored.

The actor portraying Rapeman ended his own life recently and, thus, ended this terrific series.
