If Space Sheriff Gavan was one of your greatest childhood hero, this might be that passing-of-the-torch movie you’ve not really waiting for in the last thirty years of your life. Toei doesn’t even bother to take any risks. They retain the similar look and feel of the original series, no redesign to the three decades old Gavan battle suit (Is new chest armor and helmet LED light panels counts as redesign?), just reuse the very same original theme song, and somehow still manage in failing to recreate the rushing upbeat pace of the old 30-minute TV episodes.
Very predictable plot, horrible ultra-cheap-looking CG Dolgiran and Saibarian, and… no open-top red Suzuki Sierra. Sigh. Lesson learned: don’t remake if you have no budget.
My Rating: 4/10
