There weren't that many live-action manga style films that made it here from Japan, but this was one of the few. While the darker sequel got better reviews than its predecessor, the star of the show was the Bio-Booster Armor. Part Ultraman, part Rick Owens, the lifelike costume looked awesome with clean lines and sharp details, bringing a rad Japanese aesthetic to the big screen. Power Rangers who?
