odd, melancholy auto-critique from miike. his beloved cgi sings, but that and the intricate detail-design work can't save him relying on frantic cutting, when he is at heart one of the more delicate misce en scene directors of his generation. perhaps miike's "man's greatest sport" ?
Imagine "The Dark Knight" transformed into a Lady Gaga music video, with a dash of "Blade Runner." This movie is loud, outrageous, sexy, and just plain fun. I've got to admit - even if it strictly adheres to the "bigger is better" sequel mentality - I enjoyed "Zebraman 2" more than the original. There's less humor but the pacing is faster, there's more action, and we get Riisa Naka as the painfully hot Zebra Queen.
