Critic Reviews

    It's goofy as hell but devilishly smart about it, which is why it's such great fun.
  2. Reviewed by: Deborah Young
    The special effects are quality fun, the humor only a little Japanese, and the story boasts the offbeat genre twists Miike lovers clamber for.

    The creator of such wicked bloodbaths as "Audition" and "Ichi the Killer" had it in him to craft a nearly family-friendly flick. No doubt, this kitschy CGI-action spoof is still deliciously insane.
  4. A family-friendly fantasy that finds the director working in an uncharacteristically gentle mood.
  5. Driven less by civic duty than by the need to escape his dreary life, Zebraman is a tragic, touching figure too often obscured by Kankurou Kudo’s hyperactive screenplay and a special-effects team drunk on alien slime.
  6. Goofy, raunchy and very Japanese, Miike's film will probably play best to fanboys who love "Power Rangers" and "Ultraman" -- and there are plenty of them to go around.

    It pains me to report that his Zebraman is a disappointment.

    This movie is goofy, wonderful and unpredictable. I enjoyed it hugely.
