An extremely disappointing sequel from an otherwise talented director.
I came across this movie some time back and decided to pick it up since the anime version remains one of my favorites of all time. The premise seemed promising, as did the cast of characters. Iria and her partners Bob and Fujikuro face off against an army of intergalactic mercenaries, thugs, etc. and a new robotic Zeiram unit is assigned to help them out. With Iria's old friends Kamiya and Teppei stumbling upon the face-off, the fusion of the first film and the anime was complete and success assured. And then somehow the director let everything fall apart at an amazing rate. Whatever potential the elements from the anime storyline had were completely wasted in favor of reiterating the first movie. As a result, by the end of the first hour you have the feeling that you've seen it all before, and performed a lot better the first time around. All in all, the ONLY reason to get this movie would be for the exceedingly small satisfaction of completing the Zeiram series. Otherwise, stick to the first two installments (Zeiram & Iria: Zeiram the Animation) and you'll be a lot better off.
