There's a Starman Wading in the Sky
19 November 2008 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

"A giant alien brain is leading its forces across the far reaches of space with the intent to conquer the universe. Arriving at Earth, the monstrous brain unleashes a hoard of monsters upon the planet to spread disease and destruction. The Earth's only hope of survival rests with Starman, the hero from another world, who must use all of his awesome powers to defeat the monsters and stop the alien brain," according to the DVD sleeve's synopsis.

The last three Ken Utsui (as Sûpâ Jaiantsu, or Super Giant) movies, edited together for the USA; it's understandably not very fresh, but "Evil Brain from Outer Space" features a relatively high dose of Starman action, villains, and gimmicks. After the stock footage opening all the Starman movies, a chase scene involving Balazar's brain being carried in a suitcase provides a relatively exciting opening. Balazar and his minions are better villains than not. Still, it's material reproduced down from mediocre.
