The newest Movie in the Kamen Rider Series, Geiz, Majesty, comes with a strong theme. When the previous Movie Kamen Rider Geiz was first released, it has been accepted as a masterpiece of the series, and it stands as one of the most popular ever. But was Geiz, Majesty also a masterpiece? Well, this review will attempt to give a clearer perspective on what kind of classic story it is.
Both the previous movie Kamen Rider Geiz and the current movie Kamen Rider Kaiser, seem to have a fairly strong theme of a nation that appears under attack. A nation that for some reason were not able to repel the attacks of a bunch of alien creatures. However, where the previous movie focused on the story of the main characters, Geiz, Majesty focuses more on a specific character that was a well-known English singer by the name of Olivia Pledges.
The storyline of the previous movie relied more on the story of the main protagonists, Tony and Nicole, who were the first two individuals to be discovered by the aliens. After having defeated them, the aliens were able to get the chance to use the songs of the duo to come up with something that could actually infiltrate their homeland. With that said, Tony and Nicole ended up facing each other in order to prove themselves worthy.
In the first few scenes of the previous movie, Tony and Nicole have to fight to get to the top, as the second to last scene of the movie showed them battling each other and trying to put a stop to the aliens from coming to Earth. In the second half of the movie, both of them meet in a "New York" city, and the ultimate outcome of the fight was to put a halt to the plan of the aliens. However, the exact ending remains unknown to the viewers.
From the movie itself, the plot involved was pretty impressive. All throughout the movie, both Tony and Nicole were really battling against each other, and the viewers could almost imagine how these two actually met each other in New York City. The theme of war and the fear of war when fighting an enemy, combined with the ability of cyborg technology to enable the two to get closer to each other, made the movie successful in giving a good message for the viewers.
In the movie, Cyborgs were able to easily transform into a human form, as well as from a human form to their original form. During the battle scenes, the cyborgs could also change to their true form by taking on different types of battle suits. The cyborgs were usually seen as the key character in the movie, as they were able to rise up and defeat the enemies and then flee back to Earth, where they were presumably detected. In the second half of the movie, the cyborgs' main goal was to get back to their homeland, while stopping the aliens from putting a stop to their human plans and lives.
Although the cyborgs have been capable of changing into their main forms without difficulty, their transformation is still somewhat slow compared to how they normally are. This may have been a drawback of the cyborgs' transformation ability, or it may just be their personality. Either way, they were more than capable of defeating the alien forces and escaping back to Earth.
However, despite having a strong theme in the previous movie, the story of Kamen Rider Geiz Majesty seemed to be a mixture of two elements that were more suitable for a story of the Kamen Rider Series. Still, the movie was still a very enjoyable experience, and people can see that due to the fact that it received quite a large response from the viewers.
