KAMEN RIDER KABUTO: GOD SPEED LOVE
We all know Kabuto is one of the best toku series ever, but what do I think of it's movie? Find out today on...
Yoshiette: Ummmm.... Yoshi, this is not a TV Show.
Anonymous Yoshi: What is it then?
YE: A DOD DERNED BLOG!!!!!
AY: Sorry, Sorry.
So the movie begins with a more detailed version of how the show began, Hiyori is assumed dead, and the oceans are dried up, creating the worms. The riders of the series are in a war with the worms and the logo for KAMEN RIDER KABUTO: GOD SPEED LOVE: DIRECTORS CUT (yes that's the version I have) appears. Seven years later in 2006, Tendou is walking the desert (for some reason), Then 3 supposed worms run from gunfire. Kagami tries to reason with Neo-ZECT, but that sure as hell doesn't work. One of the riders henshins into Kamen Rider Hercus, While another transforms into Kamen Rider Ketaros. Kamen Riders Drake, TheBee, and Gatack transform and have a fight against the other two riders. They cast off and Tendou appears. He henshins, casts off, and joins the fight. A few ZECT Troopers are looking in the industrial area for Worms. Hiyori is cooking as always while humming God Bless America (Which seems to play a lot in the movie). Kagami wants her to marry him but just can't say it. Some ZECT members are heading to the Jacob's Ladder Space Station while discussing the project. Some Neo-ZECT members are also discussing the project which is intended to bring water to earth. After that scene, a love scene. Yeah, this is a reoccurring theme, and it's long and drawn out. Kabuto henshins and fights some stronger versions of the worms. Hiyori is assumed dead again. Hiyori is Dying and tries to hold Tendou's hand. Neo-ZECT discusses their plans again. Hiyori is in a wheelchair, and discusses with Kagami love stuff. Neo-ZECT are beating up ZECT members. Kagami is contacted by ZECT because Tendou betrayed him. Kamen Rider Drake Henshins and destroys the industrial area. Two Neo-ZECT members go to space. Drake gets continuously shot and changes back to Daisuke. Hercus and TheBee henshin and fight. Hiyori remembers her deceased mother. Once the two Neo-ZECT members are in space, They find a new Motorcycle. Kabuto and Ketaros henshin and also fight. After they fight, they opened up a gateway to space and clock up, and continue their fight in space. Gatack opens a hole for the comet. Then a giant meteor DESTROYS the comet. Once Clock up wears of the two riders are about to hit earth, and Kabuto offers Ketaros a safe landing but rejects the offer. Hercus and TheBee fight some more and Hercus wins. Kabuto lands safely but Ketaros doesn't. Kamen Rider Caucasus appears and KILLS Hercus. Tendou and Kagami argue for who loves Hiyori more and Neo-ZECT discusses their plans more. Hiyori is dying again, and explains how much she love both our heroes. Yep, she's dead. THE CLIMAX OF THE MOVIE STARTS!!!! THE TWO HEROES FIGHT A BUNCH OF WORMS IN CLOCK UP, AND HEAD TO THE SPACE STATION!!!! The Final Battle Between Kabuto, Gatack, and Caucasus begins and crap blows up. Caucasus has a Hyper Zecter which allows him to go faster. This fight is pretty intense almost lasting the whole rest of the movie. Caucasus is sent to Space with his Hyper Zecter stolen. kagami is put in the escape pod and Kabuto changes to his Hyper form. he flies into space. Kabuto DELIVERS ONE LAST HYPER KICK TO CAUCASUS AND SENDS HIM STRAIGHT TO HELL!!!! KABUTO TIME TRAVELS TO 1999 AND MAKES BOTH CLASH INTO EACH OTHER!!!! Kabuto saves his younger self and Hiyori. and gives him the rider belt. The movie ends with Hiyori looking up to the heavens while the end credits roll.
It's a pretty good love story, but I don't want that, I WANT DOD DERNED ACTION!!!! IT WASN'T MARKET AS SUCH!!!!
I'll keep this as short and sweet as possible. The movie exclusive characters aren't that exciting, I think why is because of that concentrate LOVE STORY!!!!! Not that it was bad, just took a little too much. The Movie Riders aren't developed as much as I would liked them to, so yeah the characters I didn't care for.
While the action is great. I would like to see more of it. The production is great, and the soundtrack is epic. but We're back to the romance subplot which takes TOO MUCH OF THE ******* MOVIE!!!!! I should Have reviewed Kamen Rider 555 and it's movie this year. At least that probably doesn't have a long drawn out love story, but I could be wrong. Please tell me with out spoiling too much of the movie.
Kamen Rider Kabuto: God Speed Love was boring, I wanted to see the movie, but I want to watch the series again just to wash out the boringness, but it was still an OK movie. I give this 2.75 Hyper Zecters out of 4.
ME AND THE YOSHIETTE WISH YOU ALL MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY NEW YEAR, HAPPY HOLIDAYS, OR IF YOU'RE NOT HAPPY WITH ANY OF THEM, HAPPY GET LOST AND SHUT UP!!!! IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNEW DIDN'T MAKE IT THIS FAR THIS YEAR, REMEMBER ALL THE LIVES WE LOST THIS YEAR!!!! ONE LAST BLOG THIS YEAR AND IT'S THE HYPER BATTLE DVD!!!! SEE YOU NEXT TIME!!!!
