Movie Info

Former anime director Hideaki Anno adapts Go Nagai's manga and anime character of Cutie Honey to live-action cinema in this high-energy Japanese adventure comedy. Honey Kisaargi (Eriko Sato), an android created by her scientist father, is attempting to balance her dull office job and her secret life as the constantly costume-changing, pink-clad superhero warrior of love, Cutie Honey. When the dreaded Panther Claw gang returns to create evil and steal our hero's Love System necklace, it can only be Cutie Honey to the rescue! As Honey races to save the world, she teams up with a hard-as-nails detective (Mikako Ichikawa) and a super-cool reporter (Jun Murakami) and faces off against an evil tree demon known as Sister Jill (Eisuke Sakai). Cutie Honey incorporates anime-style hand-drawn effects into the film's many special effects sequences and features a pop music score by Mikio Endo and Kumi Koda. ~ Jason Gibner, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Kyûtî Hanî (Cutie Honey)

A weird and wacky anime adaptation that loses some of its fun as it goes on and stumbles with an unnecessarily deep ending, but still kept me interested for the most part.

One word to describe this film: FIT! It really was very hot. Mostly due to Eriko Sato and her brilliant array of costumes. Cutie Honey is an apt title, as it is both Cute and Sweet. It's a very camp affair but a fun and endearing kind of camp. Like the Batman of the 60's as opposed to Batman and Robin. The effects are cheesy but fit the live action anime action rather well. It's fun and kooky and goes at breakneck speed. There's plenty of underwear shots, poor greenscreen effects and ridiculous villains that like a bit of singing before a duel. Some of the action scenes were quite refreshing when they incorporated a sort of CGI/anime style. This film will cuddle you with kindness so give it a squeeze back.

Really silly and not a lot going for plot, but very cute and good fun.
