A fourth-generation Terminator hand-me-down.
This irresistibly over-the-top delight remains truly original in spite of its debt to an array of cinematic chestnuts.
With little room for new ideas, the film must rely on the strength of its actors, and they're excellent across the board.
Returner was a huge hit in Japan, but this would- be sci-fi epic is soporific, shamelessly derivative and barely coherent by American standards.
This Japanese sci-fi actioner copies so many Hollywood hits that it should win an award from the Xerox Corp.
The real reason to see this film is the scrappy rapport between Kaneshiro and Suzuki. They are so good together, you won't know whether to cheer or cry.
At its worse when it tries to get serious, emotional or to just end the damn film.
Worth catching for fans of the genre, just to whet the imagination of what this talented director could do with a coherent screenplay.
No this movie doesn't have any redeeming social value.
A watchable, if somewhat absurd, sci-fi stir fry.
Ransacking films like Independence Day for ideas is one thing. Restaging E.T. The Extraterrestrial, right down to the cuddly alien, is another matter entirely.
Yamazaki has made himself into a cover band, content to play Van Halen classics for middle-aged boys looking for a trip down memory lane.
A young woman returns from the future and enlists the unwilling help of a hitman to stop an alien invasion. The Terminator meets Independence Day with a dash of Transformers in a highly derivative but fun pulp sci-fi actioner. It borrows heavily from a lot of sources and the effects can occasionally feel a little "Stargate SG-1" but the likable leads and inventive visuals mean it is still very entertaining. There's the usual high octane martial arts mixed with future technology giving an excuse for some bullet-time acrobatics and Goro Kishitani makes an amusingly over the top villain. If the time travel paradox twist had been used with a little more imagination it could've been brilliant, but as it stands it's an undemandingly fun sci-fi actioner in the mold of Ryuhei Kitamura.
This Japanese sci-fi action thriller may lack originality but it still manages to be a very entertaining movie! The story consists of a young woman from a war-torn future who travels back in time 82 years to 2002 to prevent an alien invasion of earth summoning the help of a local hitman. It's got some super-cool action sequences and fairly decent special-effects. The bad guy is absolutely ruthless and the heroes are likable and excell in ass-kickery. It's Takeshi Kaneshiro at his most coolest! A must-see for sci-fi action fans.
This Movie is great...Very Smart ^_^
Cool and entertaining, but a bit uneven and weird, as with many movies from Japan. I wouldn't go as far as to call it original, since it seems to have "borrowed" most of its components from american movies, but its forgivable since they have given those elements their very own style.
