Kinameri is a moderately successful television journalist itching for a big scoop. So when a corrupt local businessman barricades himself in his house, of course he's going to be excited with things picking up.
Due to global warming and the shifting of tectonic plates, most of the Earth's land has sunk beneath the surface of the ocean. Only Japan remains and refugees from all nations try to incorporate themselves into Japanese society:
Based on the comic strip by Kenji Sonishi. William Thomas Jefferson III, an American Shorthair cat, escapes an abusive relationship with his father, a famous model, to make his own way in the world, becoming master of a ramen shop.
What can I say? I thought this film was funny! Some of the humor may get lost in translation, and kaiju fans looking for epic scenes of city destruction will be disappointed. The locations are limited and the scope is small. I do not mean these as criticisms, just facts.
The acting from the Western stars is decidedly awful, but endearing in a hilarious way. The various schemes the leaders devise are quite comical and struck a humorous cord. There is enough tributes and homages to daikaiju eiga for fans to appreciate.
