Somewhat Entertaining
14 July 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

To me, Maked Rider is your average children's Japanese Power Ranger movie. Only instead of being something only a child can enjoy, it makes for a decent action flick. With a deeper (and darker) storyline, less protagonists, and without cheesy humor, aliens, crazy weapons that give the heroes an advantage, and giant robots or powerful vehicles that that the heroes could also use to lay waste to their foes.

The plot of the film jumps around quite a bit, and when it's not expanding on the main character's story you're often left bored or just dead confused at whats going on (although by the end, bits and pieces will have all come together, not that the plot twists these make are that significant to the story). Although the rising action portion of the film is a long one, and the good action scenes are short few and far between, when it gets good, it really gets good. Essentially its still acrobatic martial artists wearing costumes fighting either each other or hordes of evil minions (which are the human equivalents of grunts from Halo), the moves that the main characters can pull off are amazing. But I can't critique the film based on action so Pros Excellent Action Cool looking costumes (most of them at least) Interesting plot Cons The plot jumps around a lot The good scenes are spread out throughout the film separated by long scenes of diologue and other characters
