Movie Reviews

Great movie for City Hunter fans
I. Chan | CA USA | 10/17/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"... The Jackie Chan movie was inspired by the anime/manga City Hunter, not the other way around. The anime TV series of City Hunter were out in Japan long before the Jackie Chan was made in Hong Kong. That said, this is a great movie with a good story that adds to the original TV series and stands well on its own. Funny and loads of actions, just like all the other City Hunters."
Funny stuff, not much action, though

"If you like Anime but never watched any "City Hunter" Videos, this would be a good one to start with. It passes itself off as an action flick at first, but its way more comical, with wacky slapstick humor between Joe and his female sidekick. Joe is quite possibly the funniest heroes I've ever seen, and some of the things he does in the film are so brash, they're hilarious!Essesntially the story is about Joe and his friends trying to stop a madman called The Professor from blowing up Tokyo, but the more memorable parts of the film involve Joe and women...they're too funny to mention without actually spoinilg the best parts of the movie. The action sequences aren't that great, although the climax is kinda cool...If you're a woman though, since a lot of the humor involve Joe's womanizing perverted ways, you may not think it's funny at all."

"City Hunter the motion picture is a grand example of how to blend both comedy and action. The story centers around a private eye known as Joe, a.k.a City Hunter. Joe is a lecherous, egotistical nut case who never gets the girl. The only time he is serious is when he has his 357 Magnum out. Joe has a partner named Kori whom is a plain woman that beats the hell out of Joe if he looks at another woman, which happens quite often. In this volume Joe agrees to help a yung dancer find her missing brother. Yet when her brother turns out to be a notorius assassin known as the Professor only Joe can protect his client and the rest of Tokyo from the Professor's sinister plan. This series is very similar to the anime "Gunsimth Cats". The animation is quite good and so is the voice casting. If you are in the mood for a good laugh and lots of action then this is defenitly the film you need. Warning most of humor in this series is sophmoric, there are also some scenes of violence, language and brief nudity. I would say this is for the 13 and up crowd."
