Trivia

In the original serial, the aliens are described as being the kappa, a creature from Japanese mythology. In the condensed American version, the aliens are instead referred to as "salamander men". See more »

Goofs

The Salamander people use a gun to change the orbital movement of the Earth. However, Earth's self-rotation, not orbiting, weakly changes the gravity. Even then, all the objects would feel the force, not just few small items (that could be lifted on a rope). See more »

Easily the best of the four Starman films
8 March 2018 | by benjaminweberSee all my reviews

Out of the four films edited together from the Japanese television series, this one is by far the best. While the costumes look fairly basic in places, there are also frequent moments where the costume design suitably capture the overall creepy atmosphere of the film. The sound works well in helping to establish atmosphere, and while a traditional story structure still isn't possible due to being formed from multiple TV episodes, there is an overall plot and several cases of setting up a climax that actually pays off. An additional bonus is there seems to have been more effort into creating the fight scenes, with better choreography and better editing, giving a more convincing appearance than the usual festival of minions throwing a punch, missing and consequently falling over.

In conclusion, if you're going to watch the Starman films, watch this one last. Otherwise the others will not live up to expectation!
