THE PLOT:

A school that teaches young boys and girls how to become famous anchorpeople in the media. But there is something strange going in this school. The facility takes a sick pride in handing our S & M style punishments to students for the most trivial things. But there is one among them, a hero that hides her face but bares everything else in the name of justice.

Her name is Kekko Kamen, all know the legend of how Kekko Kamen defeated the evil Mangriffin in a local high school, but now she's back and out to stop the evil twisted fiends once again.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Now this is the kind of women libs agent I love to run into in a dark alley. This is based on a Japanese anime as you may or may not be aware of. In the Anime, she was way bigger, if you know what I mean. But I guess they could help that. The only problem I have with subtitles is when they talk fast, it's hard for me, the reader of the subtitles to keep up. One thing I like is that they are keeping to campy fun of the anime. The costume is exact to the anime, even though I don't remember the scarf being so long. Anyway, the cast does a great job with the silly premise given to them and what man wouldn't like naked Karate? Hmm? So in conclusion ladies and jelly spoons like me make this fact perfectly clear. I enjoyed this movie. Now if you are somehow offended by nudity, then is is NOT THE MOVIE FOR YOU! But as for me, I am giving it a big 9 STARS!

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

My only complaint is with the Japanese people. Time to catch up with the rest of the world. This pubic area phobia has got to end. Look at American movies, we aren't the narrow minded jerks we were at the end of World War II. I wish some American company would get ahold of the negative before the public blocking and release it unblocked and dunbbed. I don't read fast at all and I really don't like dubbing. A direct translation only, no changes what so ever. I too give KEKKO KAMEN 9 STARS.

ON THE POSTIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ ACTION (Plenty of naked marital arts to make any man happy.)
+ STORY (The continuation after the series works.)
+ CHARACTERS (We both liked the characters.)
+ TRUE TO ORIGINAL (They kept the story true to the anime.)
+ KEKKO KAMEN COSTUME (All most exact to the anime.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- KEKKO'S BUST (They could have picked a bigger girl.)
- SUBTITLED (We both wished there was a dubbed version.)
- PUBIC BLOCKING (Voltron wishes a uncensored version would come out.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you didn't like the anime series or are easily offended by nudity, then this is not the movie for you.)
