The triple transformation at the end was neat, reminds me of the end of that Space Sheriff team up - essentially the only good part of that thing.
Anywho, fun movie! One thing I've always been a huge fan of is expanded universes and making things feel as if they're working worlds beyond what we see the characters interact with on a daily basis, so seeing them interact with these expanded facets is a lot of fun. And Ohba's still my favorite toku actor, the dude can pull off moves like no one's business.
Gavan Bootleg looked kind of crappy in certain shots and I'm not sure whether or not that's intentional. The CGI Dolgiran was...just bad, really bad, even for tokusatsu. I've got to wonder if this was because they were maybe rushed with production or if that's all they wanted to do.
Those two things are really my only gripes with the movie, other than that, I absolutely loved it. Seeing Gavan in action again was wonderful, Ohba's a great stunt actor and really shows up a lot of the younger guys here.
Well, his name is 'Gavan Bootleg' ... :laugh: Perhaps the Zangyack took cues from those shady eBay sellers who peddle crappy knockoff figures when they made him?
I liked this movie a lot! I kinda wish I knew a bit more about the Metal Heroes franchise going in, but Gavan is pretty kickass. The fights were fun to watch, the villain cameos made me laugh ( Kega-chaaaan! ♥ And lol, nobody likes you Bae. ) and the whole backstory with Gavan and tiny Marvelous was interesting -- though I have to wonder how and why Marvy was on that ship in the first place, I wonder if it'll be addressed in subs or something ...
I think my only -- admittedly minor and nitpicky! -- beefs were ★ the narration over the whole big transformation scene. What was with that? I'd like to know if it's a reference I'm not getting or what. ★ of all the Action Commanders to bring back, why the Sneak Brothers? = m =;; Though the sister partially makes up for it by having the cutsiest voice imaginable for such an ugly-ass body, I admit that I lol'd.
