Product Description

Part motorcycle, part karate expert, ALL ROBOT! When the safety of the world is at stake, Zaborgar will save the day!

Secret police officer Yutaka Daimon inherits a mighty robot warrior named Zaborgar, an invention of his late father. Equipped with super weapons, expertise in karate, and the power to transform into a motorcycle, Zaborgar assists Daimon fight against Sigma, the evil organization responsible for his father s death. But when he discovers a beautiful female robot under Sigma s control, their forbidden love shatters the once inseparable crime-fighting team of Daimon and Zaborgar.

Twenty-five years later, the now-disgraced Daimon works as a chauffeur for corrupt Prime Minister Wakasugi. But as Sigma unleashes a new robot menace upon the world, will Zaborgar forgive, forget, and save the world from total destruction?

From director Noboru Iguchi (THE MACHINE GIRL, ROBO-GEISHA), comes a hilariously over-the-top tribute to the transforming robots of 1970 s Japanese television in an exciting action comedy that will stir the heart of anyone who longs for justice, love, and mechanized mayhem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prepare for Crazy December 4, 2012
Format:DVD
Holy cow, I just saw this movie, and it is absolutely, amazingly, unpredictably fun. I was in the mood for something a little silly, and a movie about "a motorcycle that knows karate" which reminded me of Ultraman seemed about right. This movie did not disappoint, and in fact blew my mind. This is a hilarious movie, written and played with tongue firmly in cheek, that takes itself serious enough to drive the story and characters to their absurd and awesome ends, yet is clearly designed to smack a smile right on your mug and keep re-plastering it there over and over again. I had no clue what was coming, and I suspect that that is the best way to experience this. It looks something like a cross between a standard sci fi Japanese B-movie and an unbelievably well-produced episode of the Power Rangers--and I mean that in a good way (you may have to just see it to know how that somehow works so well). But it feels more like Shaolin Soccer or something in that vein. If you are familiar with that movie and it is the type of thing you like, you might want to experience this crazy flick. If you like that and also are a fan of transforming robots and/or B science fiction, then you pretty much have to see this or you are not a complete person yet. Not to be taken seriously, yet somehow sweepingly epic, too over-the-top to be drama but somehow still fleetingly moving in several moments (I mean, you really have to go with it, but, it's there), and too stupid to ever be anything but rabid fun, I can't believe this won't become a real cult classic over time. Probably not for kids, would be great fun to watch with a group of friends who have a sense of humor and know a little about Japanese cult sci fi, nothing your mom or dad could relate to. I'm over 40, though, so that means something different to a lot of you out there. Zaborgar GO! (I can't tell you how much I wish I could experience watching this movie for the first time over again . . . pure karate-robo insanity.)

5.0 out of 5 stars GO ZABORGAR GO! November 13, 2012
By J.N.
Format:Blu-ray
Wow. Sushi Typhoon did something that alot of recent reboots have not been able to accomplish, they kept the heart of the show intact. In the process of "modernizing" old shows, reboots throw in high tech special effects, glamorous actors, adult sexuality but unfortunately lose all the charm of the original. Zaborgar was a childhood favorite of mines. I'm so glad that this update retains all the campy, goofy, heartfelt goodness of the original without compromising for the jaded audiences of today. All the characters from the old series are back in this neat, entertaining movie!

My husband is obsessed with this movie. I got it for him a while ago after he stumbled upon it on Netflix. He can't stop talking about it. I don't get it but I'm OK with that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheezy! January 28, 2014
By J.L.S.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very cheezy fun. If you enjoy a great bad movie like I do, this is for you. :)

I will probably watch this many times over, if only for the sheer awfulness of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine film for Japanese FX fans. December 11, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hilarious homage to--and parody of--late Showa era tokusatsu TV and movies. The villains are over the top, but then again so are the heroes. And the trailer collection is absolutely marvelous!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money November 7, 2013

I enjoyed watching it. It brings back memories of me living in Hawaii in the late 70s. I have been searching for Zborgar for years and now I have it...cool! I would like to get my hands-on the original series.
