5.0 out of 5 stars Prepare for Crazy, December 4, 2012
This review is from: Karate-Robo Zaborgar (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.)
