Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider and turned into Spiderman thanks to a special suit and mask, Clark Kent took off his glasses and
formal outfit in a phone box to turn into Superman and Bruce Wayne
swapped his tuxedo and riches for a leather suit, mask and cape to
become Batman. Kyosuke Shikijo wants to be a superhero as his dad's a
cop and his mother is a bondage queen, but what kind of superhero will
We've seen superheroes before, loads of them, but
Hentai Kamen isn't one of them - a guy who wears a pair of ladies
knickers over his head fights for justice, or is he doing it just to get
the love of his life hoping she will finally take notice of him? If it
is the latter, then she'll not be able to miss him roaming around the neighbourhood in a mankini and fishnet stockings with only the pants to
keep her from knowing it's him in disguise. When she gets kidnapped by a gang of bank robbers he doesn't know what
to do at first, but when he handles women's knickers he finds he can
unleash his inner pervert and become the superhero he always wanted, and
of course win the girl of his dreams.
Based on a manga by
Keishu Ando and serialised in Weekly Shonen Jump, HK: Forbidden
Superhero is one of the most original ideas to co me from the land of
the Rising Sun in ages. Comedies come in different shapes and sizes and this one was a surprise
hit in Japan as well as winning an award at the New York Asian Film
Festival - and with Hentai Kamen's comical martial arts moves and
crotch super hits, criminals can't get away from him - women want him
and men adore his nifty techniques. Just think, if you're a criminal out to rob some guy on the street, a
bank robber or a guy whose out to steal someone's car- beware of a man
with pants on his face and a mankini that only covers his genitals! As this is a live action movie it is well worth getting as you aren't likely to see anything similar again.
Bonus Material: Trailer.
Verdict: Funny, sexy and at times all out hilarious!
