Editorial Reviews

Straight from the delightfully-bent psyche of Takashi Miike (Ichi the Killer, Audition) comes a scandalous tale of good vs. evil! The year is 2025. Tokyo has fallen, and the world cries out for a hero. It cries for Zebraman. This striped crime fighter is the only hope for those who live in fear of the Zebra Queen, a hooved seductress out to conquer the world with the aide of her Miniskirt Zebra Police. The Queen has stolen Zebraman's powers and instituted Zebra Time: ten horrifying minutes each day when murder is legal! Without his super strength, Zebraman is just a guy with a mane - a broken-down hero unable to stop the onslaught of evil. Before he can take a bite out of the bad guys, Zebraman must find the young girl who holds the secret to regaining his ass-kicking powers and prove, once and for all, that a hero never changes his stripes!

I've never seen the first ZEBRAMAN picture. Frankly, I didn't even know one existed. If my internet reading in preparation for writing this review is any indication, I'm not entirely certain how I'd receive it by comparison to the tidy li'l epic that ZEBRAMAN 2: ATTACK ON ZEBRA CITY (hereafter known as "Z2") surprisingly turned out to be, but I may just have to seek it out now that I know that legendary Japanese director Takashi Miike has taken a swing at the superhero genre of films. With a name like `Zebraman,' it's safe to expect that the hero's going to look as zany as he sounds. Perhaps he should! And maybe that's exactly what Miike would've wanted.

I won't try to decipher too much of the story here, though I'll give it an honest try. It's 2010, and Zebraman just saved Japan (and the greater Earth at large) from an alien invasion ... or so he thinks. One of the parasitic green critters survives - hiding inside the body of a young girl - but, before our hero can do anything about it, he's captured by a new menace: a mad scientist bent on splitting Zebraman into two beings, one that's good and one that's evil. Flash forward to 2025, and Zebraman's alter ego wakes up with amnesia ... but it doesn't take long for the doddering school teacher to realize the danger of Zebra Queen, Zebra Police, and Zebra Time! It's a freakish dystopian tomorrow where techno-pop evil dance princesses rule the day, and survival of the fittest means that, for five minutes every day, lawlessness prevails across Japan in order to provide a balance to the new social order the other 23 hours and 55 minutes requires.

Like I said, I won't try to decipher too much from it ...

That said, Z2 plays out like a bit of an epic B movie.

This isn't a terrible movie, but it simply isn't as good as Zebraman. This movie had a very large budget and it shows. The problem is that they spent a lot of money and a good portion of the movie making techno music videos of a Christina Aguillera meets Zebraman pop star. Although interesting at first, it gets old very quickly.

This movie is a classic examply of Japanese cinema embracing style over substance and quality story telling. I would recommend renting this, but I definately regret purchasing this. I would definately get Zebraman over this any day.

The original was a tale of a obsessive shut-in teacher with dreams of being a super-hero. Everything that made that movie great is not in this film. It's worth a watch, but don't set your expectations very high.

after watching zebra man, i was hooked. this film disappointed like so many other sequels. it seems like they spent a lot more money on this film, but the whole storyline and character development was lacking. i feel like they just said hey, lets make this shit as weird as possible, screw the story. zebra queen was pretty ridiculous. it wasn't bad enough to keep me from wanting to pre order a part 3 if they ever make one.

In 2004, Takashi Miike ("13 Assassins", "Ichi the Killer", "Audition") would surprise his viewers by taking on a superhero action/comedy film.

Taking place in 2010, the film would feature a story about a 3rd grade teacher and family man named Shinichi Ichikawa who's life is not going all that great. His wife cheats on him, his teenage daughter dates older men and his son is constantly bullied because his father is a teacher. His students disrespect him. Life, is not a happy one for Shinichi.

In order to get away from life, he dresses up at night as "Zebraman", a character from an unpopular 1970's tokusatsu TV series that he watched as a child. While crimes and murders occur near the school that he teaches, Shinichi decides to confront these criminals as Zebraman but quickly learns that these criminals are actually possessed by aliens and somehow, he absorbs a special power to take on the aliens.

As the film was enjoyed by many, Miike decided to create a second film but this time taking place in 2025, 15 years after the events of "Zebraman".

This time around, Tokyo has been taken control of governor Kozo Aihara (played by Guadalcanal Taka) who has significantly cut crime in Japan and because of what he accomplished, to further cut down the crime, he has merged Tokyo, Saitama, Chiba and surrounding areas and renamed the region as Zebra City.

At 5:00 AM/PM, the government has allowed for "Zebra Time", in which Zebra police and his Zebra Mini-Skirt Police can attack and kill any presumed criminal. And during "Zebra Time", his daughter Yui/the Zebra Queen played by Riisa Naka) performs for her audience and is a major pop star, while behind-the-scenes, she is a sadistic and psychotic woman!

Daryl Loomis, DVD Verdict --It's unnecessary to have seen the original Zebraman to understand the sequel. There's a brief recap of the past events at the beginning of the film, and neither movie makes much sense anyway, so it's just as well to not put too much thought into it and enjoy the ride. As ridiculous as the original was, Miike has upped the ante in every respect with Zebraman 2: Attack on Zebra City, delivering a sequel that is completely insane and even more enjoyable than its predecessor.

Miike and writer Kankuro Kudo, who also penned the original, had a significantly larger budget this go around and used it everywhere he could. The fights are bigger, the effects are more explosive, and everything is flashier. But even though the sequel was clearly far more expensive than the original, Attack on Zebra City still retains the cheap esthetic of the "Giant Robot" movies and television shows that have been forever popular in Japan. With an eye pointed firmly on Ultraman and its imitators, Miike simultaneously mimics and mocks the genre, with all the bad wire work, foam rubber costumes, and flashing lights that come along with it. Miike and Kudo went even farther than that, though. As they should, the non-super people in the film revere Zebraman with unwavering respect and gratitude. In tribute to his heroism, a television show is made about his exploits and this Zebraman rendition is even more ridiculous than the reality. Plus, the actor who played the hero on the show gets into the act, believing that he was somehow granted some of Zebraman's powers to very good effect.
