    I'm not typically behind the curve on Super-Hero flicks, and technically I'm not really behind the curve here considering the film currently sits at a 4.4 average rating, but there are certainly more folks here rating this one five stars than with me here at 4.5 stars. This film does what it does extremely well, no doubt, but I'm gonna quote a friend who I saw the film with -

    Batman takes on four of his arch-enemies at once! One of the silliest, campiest live-action films one can find is also the first live-action non-independently-produced superhero film - 1966's Batman. I don't think I've seen this one for 30 years and honestly I think I had forgotten that I had seen it in my youth, confusing this film with the television series that followed with the same actors and costumes. In watching it, however, I recalled the best memories of…

    ★★★½

    Sony Chiba is as lethal as ever in this sequel, but it's missing plenty that the original had. There's no shocking graphic mutations here. The cinematography in the climax was way too dark which largely was absent from the original featuring a fight in a rainstorm at night at the end. Act one is actually largely absent the star with it showing simple karate demonstrations for over ten minutes and proceeding to focus on side characters. The tag-a-long doofus wasn't…

    Wow! What a surprise this one was! I admit I have a lot of work to do when it comes to discovering international talent, especially those of 40 years or more ago. Yet Sony Chiba puts on without a doubt one of the most impressive shows here that I've seen of anyone of his time, or even all times. He's so good in this flick that it's impossible not to take note and remember his name. Just about every sequence…

    ★★★★★

    A giant film in cinematic history. This film might not have been the first historical drama, but its critical success cemented the genre as a big-budget money maker on the big screen, which documentaries had been seemingly trying to do since the inception of the film industry. There's really no telling how many more people have seen Niel Armstrong land on the moon in the introduction of this film than have actually pulled the events up on you-tube or elsewhere.…

    I was stuck in between an avid fan and a raving cynic in the theater. The cynic was moaning and groaning at all of the dialogue, mumbling "Ugghh" and "Lame" multiple times at every scene and generally bemoaning all the character interactions in the film. The fan wouldn't stop cheering at every cameo, which was much more understandable and relatable from my seat. Needless to say I'm eager for a physical release so I can re-watch this one in comfort.…
