Cécile de France (a Belgian actress, actually, despite her -real- name) proves herself to be one of the most promising actresses in french cinema. She's definitely a performer to watch for, though Maïwenn Le Besco also gives an excellent performance despite being mute and gagged during most of the film.
Highly recommended if you enjoy fine Japanese animation and if you're a nostalgic of the old "Mazinger" series. Not exactly food for thought, but certainly a heart-warming occasion to see your old heroes kicking again !
The best thing about this mess is the reporter's character, played by Cine Excel regular Mel Novak : this guy obviously serves the purpose to explain the plot for the audience. But not only that : since Cine Excel lacks the budget to film any decent action or plot development, Novak's bizarrely omniscient character will indulge in over-complicated explanations, so the audience will (hopefully) believe that they are seeing a movie with a real plot. As a result, the whole movie is rendered nearly incomprehensible. Quite a feat. This is a definite must-see for fans of the "so-bad-it's-good" genre.
