Cette debauche de moyens se retourne neanmoins souvent contre cette "Contre-offensive sur Zebra City". Malgre une excellente idee de depart (reduire la criminalite en autorisant tous les debordements cinq minutes par jour), "Zebraman 2" evacue le cote ouvertement satyrique du premier volet et sacrifie a l'obligation d'en flanquer plein-la-vue, jusqu'a se donner les allures et la pretention d'un Sentai de luxe effroyablement sentencieux. On peut heureusement toujours compter sur Takashi Miike pour deraper a un moment donne et pour caler quelques uns de ces elements improbables dont il a le secret (nain sadique et couineur, blob extraterrestre petomane, clip de J-pop Ladygagaesque,...). De quoi equilibrer l'appreciation qu'on portera a ce second episode plus "hollywoodien" que son predecesseur mais egalement plus previsible et formate.

Another one of those romcoms where I imagine the creators thought the audience would go along for the ride and cheer for the leads simply because of who was cast. But the movie falls flat from the moment they appear on screen together. I simply did not buy that they could potentially end up together. Heck, THEY didn't look like they wanted to be together. As odd as it sounds, the film is exponentially better when Cusack is not on screen. A good supporting cast cannot save this unfortunate script. The title is appropriate, because to like this movie you must love dogs.
