KR Saber Movie: The Phoenix Swordsman & The Book of Destruction

Post by takenoko »

Wiki
KR Zero-One REAL x TIME >

Looked kind of cool and made the swordsmen look really stylish. Has the Saber problem of overrelying on CGI though

Plot so thin that Mei was just reduced to being a cheerleader on the side. I'm surprised she didn't lead the kids in the theaters along to cheer for the Riders

Go watch REAL x TIME

That was certainly... a 20 minute long video. Frankly it was so astoundingly mediocre I'd say I'd already forgotten everything about it but seeing as there's basically nothing to remember...

Paper-thin villain with the flimsiest of motivations, dialogue consisting of trite "I will save the world"s that were likely copy/pasted out of a different Rider show, and random high school girl/office worker who... were onscreen a lot but I think got like 1 line of dialogue? Don't put that on your resume guys.

"Kamen riders are people who protect the world in secret." WELL NOT ANYMORE MEI THANKS A LOT

Welp this ones is as bad as specter v cinema, no pacing at all just a 30 min fight video, bland villain, bland reason for villain doing stuff, nothing explained, deus-ex-machina power up with no reasoning. Yep you can tell this was the filler for the sentai movie short pointless why was it made, swear its because they could and they needed to fill 30 mins cause the sentai movie was running shorter then usual.

it feels like .... someone made the phoenix rider, it was scrapped, BUT! the person who designed phoenix rider was friends or the kid of someone higher up and as such it was given life in this 20 minute movie. i didnt even understand why the 2 black and white dragons came down. like were they friends with red or something? seemed like he knew them as brave dragon went and got them. so much potential for an in show plot rather than what happened after they defeated Calibur. not that im 100% dissatisfied with where current plot is, but a Phoenix blade might have been more interesting as a mid season filler, and then the master logos stuff. just my 2 cents.

There's really nothing here aside from eyecandy graphics for the kids.

It's just me but there's just too much shouting in this series.

Emotional Dragon?!, yikes, still, Goseiger's "Landick" tribe still reigns supreme in my book for worst made up BS lol!
