Space Hunter Miki (Japan 1996)

Rating: *

Painfully disappointing. I once again fell victim to this film's marketing, which promised a "Zeiram" (1991) type film about a cute and feisty bounty hunter who hunts down space monsters. And it does deliver just that, just extremely poorly. Shot on video with embarrassing digital and physical effects (sometimes even degrading to full screen QuickTime movies), weak fighting, lame action, and a story that just doesn't go anywhere. There are some hottie hunters, but they never get a chance to shine. The actress who plays Miki does a respectable job (despite the material), is cute, and had a lot of fun with the part, but sadly that isn't enough to save the film.
