    Never thought I'd miss the campiness of the original movies. This is a cautionary tale for going too dark and grounded against the source material. Somewhere out there is a happy medium between both film styles, and hopefully it'll be Marvel studios that figures that out.

    How does no one go to jail at the end of this movie?

    This film more than any other is responsible for my desire to visit Japan one day. I fell in love with this movie when i first watched it years ago and only picked it up on bluray the other day. Truthfully I was hesitant to re watch this film at first fearing that it may not hold up to my expectations but I was soon relieved to find that it's still as wonderful as I remembered.
