Isn't it ironic that the home video market almost killed Troma and now it is responsible for Troma's huge resurgence? Lloyd Kaufman is not taking it for granted. He is loading up these dvds with extras, not just trailers and triva, but this one comes with the rare animated Kabukiman cartoon! It also has great commentary by the star Rick Gianisi, and if that's not enough may I remind you that the movie is a cult classic because it is a hilarious homage to camp classics like the Adam West Batman series. It can't hurt that one of the female police officers wears a thin white tank top and painted on spandex jogging shorts either!!

This movie is unquestionably one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. The clown scene literally caused me to experience my first heart attack.(well maybe not, but I was laughing for 7 minutes straight) The killer chopsticks were brilliant, and the ancient prophecy was...well...hehehehehhe

This is equal to Troma's War which was a masterpiece and awesome. Sgt. Kabukiman is easily one of the funniest movie's I've ever seen. With Lethal Chopsticks, and fatal sushi you can never go wrong.

Not a big Troma fan, but I've seen several of their flicks over the years and this is the best. You have a hapless, but well-meaning cop thrust into an end-of-the-world battle. Aided by a beautiful Asian woman. (And, yes, you do get to see her boobs.) His blundering transformation from NYPD sergeant to Kabukiman is one long laugh fest. Just beware, as another reviewer wrote the theme song is a Kabuki ear worm.

This was a pretty reasonable movie story-wise for a Troma. By reasonable I mean more dialogue than normal, and it made more sense than usual too. Sense... well it just felt complete, and wasn't missing too much.

Now that that is done. I really liked this one. Not as good as Toxic I, but not too far behind. Kaboooooooooki

It is so bad it's good. What would you expect for an action adventure movie with Kabuki themed hero? Huh? So the producer could get the support of a Japanese game company. I really like the heroine and the hero is competent, but not even they can save the movie. I like the episode where the hero, green as a kabuki man, turns into a clown, and is chased through the city squirting seltzer and whipped cream at the villains. Also, the end where the stars form a semblance to Sgt. Kabukiman.

I loved it.

The planets are coming into alignment and evil will soon walk the earth again, unless Kabukiman rises to stand against this ancient threat. The chosen one has been training for twenty-five years, and just before he is to receive the spirit of Kabukiman, he is murdered. In steps the NYPD's... well, not finest, but most typical. The cocky police sargeant goes through some growing pains and struggles with his new gifts, and suffers a loss due to his inability to master his gifts. Violence and hilarity ensues.

Utterly ridiculous and frivolous, which a budget that must have been at least six figures; quality special effects, plausibility, and post-production polish were left outside the door.

The script is remarkably sophisticated for a minimum budget effort. Some of the campier aspects might not survive a better budget, but despite this there was a degree of character growth and nuance that would normally pass unnoticed in a flick like this.

I enjoyed this movie no end. Well worth the effort.
