the best of the franchise
5 July 2012 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

Picks up again where part 2 ended with a summary and the end did remind you of the best parts of part 1 and 2 but this taking place in the future also takes the movie further away from the original script then ever.

The end scene is again one you will have a WTF feeling and the part were they are some kind of robots just didn't work for me. Again, as in the other two reviews this leans the best towards Yatterman (2009). But on the other hand we do have more martial art fightings then in the other entries. And the fact that girls are involved takes it also to another dimension. Still, not gory or creepy like most of Miiki's flicks. For me the best entry in the franchise but still not my cup of tea.

Gore 1/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 2/5 Story 3/5 Comedy 0/5
