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.

4.0 out of 5 stars sequel not as good as original September 7, 2013
By Brent P
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars ZEBRAMAN 2 IS SIMPLY NOT AS GOOD AS ZEBRAMAN January 5, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

I'm a definite fan of these movies now. Don't go into this movie expecting something super serious; just roll with it and have fun!

A bit bummed that the Blu-ray/DVD combo came in the larger DVD sized case and not the smaller Blu-ray case.
