Misogyny and sexual harassment are not funny at all, 5 November 2015
Author: guisreis from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This Japanese manga-based comedy superhero film is very bad. Off course a surrealistic B-movie with poor visual effects may be good, and even the bizarre idea of a naked super heroine with an rabbit-eared red mask and scarf who fights with her beautiful body (and has a special strike in which she performs an epic jump, opens her legs and strangles the enemy between her thighs) and with a nunchaku (that she uses quite well) is not the problem (and could also be funny). The drawbacks are that acting and dialogs are awful and poor, and the story is ridiculous, campy and somewhat misogynous: evil and powerful TV journalism training school owners torture the students (who are all girls) in a childish but also sexual way, and the superheroine Kekkô Kamen saves the day fighting them in order to allow the victims to "accomplish their dreams". Villains are purposely the most ridiculous possible, and it was not funny but just one more reason to hate the film. Anyway, an important lesson everyone may learn by watching it is that sexual sublimation in real life is not a good motivation for creating sane movies. Sexual harassment is not a topic suitable for jokes. Close-ups on breasts and panties give the impression that teenagers who are just discovering sex are responsible for direction and cinematography. By its weirdness and theme, the film could be nothing else but Japanese.
