Overview

Transformed into a locust-human hybrid by a nefarious organization known only as Shocker, a once-normal man makes it his mission to bring down the group that destroyed his life once and for all. Hongo was just your typical Japanese citizen until Shocker instilled him with superhuman powers and destroyed his life in the process. These days Hongo wants nothing more than to make the mysterious Shocker group pay for their abominable crime against humanity. When the heavies at Shocker learn that their lives are in danger, they create an exact replica of Hongo with hopes that the powerful doppelganger can thwart his vengeful plan. Now, as Hongo sets out to take down Shocker, the one opponent with the power to destroy him rises to wage an epic battle that could bring all of Tokyo crumbling to the ground.

    Kamen Rider The First. 2 movies and one of them I liked!

    Kamen (Masked) Rider is one of the three premire beloved transforming superhero series. The other two big franchises are the Ultraman series and the Super Sentai series which are "adapted" into Power Rangers every year from the previous years show. Like sentai and Ultraman, Kamen Rider has had many incarnations since it began in 1972 when it was created by Shotaro Ishinomori and Toei Productions. Each Kamen Rider series begins with new characters, as well as a new take on the premise and combat powers of the heroes. Rider, ideally at least has been the most moody and dramatic in terms of tone. This film, Kamen Rider the First is the first time anything Kamen Rider has been brought over in a non "adapted" form wich by itself is a victory and reason enough to give praise to Media Blasters. The First is called so because it is an attempt to modernize the original Kamen Rider series for a new generation. You could possibly liken it to what Marvel Comics does with their Ultimate Spider-Man graphic novels. The aspects of the film that accomplish this do so pretty well. The Kamen Riders have a look that speaks to their roots while being very sleek and modern, as do their enemies, the Kaijin (monsters) from the terror group SHOCKER who actually manage to retain their theatrical vibe while still being beliveably malevolent. The film kick-starts with a nice distribution of action and drama as we are lead through the story of Hongo Takashi being turned against his will into a kaizo-ningen (altered human or cyborg). Combined with some excellent stunt-work, hand-to-hand, and wirework the action and story are at full throttle. The movie stalls however, when a secondary story involving two young teenagers at a hospital interupts the main narrative. The film begins to linger on the sadness of the two and it's the movies prioritzing of angst over action here is what hurts it the most. There is a twist later that brings this secondary plot together with the main one, but in my opinion the twist is simply not worth the loss in momentum that makes the main plot kinda get stuck on the side of the road in favor of it.
