Audience Reviews for Zebraman

  • Feb 07, 2009
    When amorphous green aliens invade Yokohama, a wimpy schoolteacher dons the costume of an obscure TV superhero to fight them. A bit too much drama and character development for an action/comedy, but there are enough of director Miike's trademark weird sequences, without his sometimes off-putting perversity, to make this (mostly) kid-friendly effort interesting.

    Takashi Miike is a really hard director to place a genre on because he is all over the map with his films. <i>Zebraman</i> is one of those with no R-rated material, but it is just as out there as any other Miike movie. Well, not totally out there. It is fairly easy to make sense out of this, although it is without question, different. Heck, look at the title. <i>Zebraman</i>.<p>People tend to label this picture as a comedic superhero flick. This movie does have its share of laughs, but there is a serious tone behind it all. It is Miike's abstractness and out of the blue scenes that get the laughs, while at the same time bringing out a "what the h***?" look. I can't believe I'm saying this, but the lack of these types of scenes is a letdown. That leaves this 115 minute film a little bland and slow going.</p><p>In a film with "Power Ranger" type costumes, there is a place for CG. At times the CG is quite brilliant and at others it doesn't look all that great, but at the end of the day it doesn't really matter. Miike's little green men have this cute but sinister look going for them. They actually look pretty darn cool in my book.</p><p>Sho Aikawa dressing up as Zebraman is pretty hilarious to see. The attractive Kyoka Suzuki is a little weird in here, but so is everything else. She does look good as "Zebranurse." The rest of the supporting cast is OK.</p><p><i>Zebraman</i> is a hard movie to pass up for Miike fans. Take my advice and just watch it. "Turn on the black and white."

    Oh so funny. Who would have guessed the director of "Ichi The Killer" could turn around and do something so lighthearted and whimsical.

    One of Miike's lesser outings is still quite watchable with a great performance by the always reliable Aikawa. And you gotta love his theme song.
