The latest film from Japanese cult king, Takashi Miike, is something you’d get if the folks at Pixar dropped acid. Based on the 1970s anime television hit, the film follows the exploits of two unlikely superheroes, Gan (Sho Sakurai) and Ai (Saki Fukuda), who must ensure the mystical Skull Stone does not fall into the wrong hands.
Toy store owners by day, Gan and Ai battle a gang of increasingly elaborate thugs by night with the help of a giant mechanical dog. Oh, and what Miike movie is complete without a curvaceous female robot who is more interested in achieving orgasm than taking over the world?
