It hurt MY brain.
16 May 2013 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

The high council of The Emerald Planet—a motley collection of cardboard/papier-mâché extraterrestrials—are so embarrassed by their 'superhero' Starman (Ken Utsui) that they once again elect to send him billions of miles away to help the inhabitants of an insignificant blue planet called Earth who are under attack from Balazar, a disembodied brain, and his army of mutants.

Flying to wherever there is trouble with the aid of his clearly visible harness, Starman uses his amazing martial arts/dance moves to defeat the creatures without ever seeming to make contact (I imagine that they're more stunned by his hysterical attire than by any of his punches). Once again, Starman is aided in his quest by a couple of cute Japanese kids with whom the superhero sneaks in a few surreptitious hugs whenever possible (a strange, fully-grown man in a leotard getting pally with minors: I'm surprised he's not been picked up by the police for questioning).

If you've already been unfortunate enough to witness the horror of a Starman movie, you should have a pretty good idea of what to expect—choppy editing, diabolical dubbing, no sense of excitement whatsoever, really bad monsters—and you will have no doubt prepared yourself mentally for what is in store for you this time around. On the other hand, If you haven't already had the pleasure of Ken Utsui prancing around in the daftest space get-up since Ming the Merciless, then all I can say is, expect the worst: you won't be disappointed.
