The annual Kamen Rider summer movie: A chance to lớn tell a standalone adventure with a slightly more extravagant budget than the series can allow. Sometimes it’s a chance to địa chỉ additional characterisation or development lớn elements that the show didn’t have time for, & sometimes it’s a chance to tell stories in strange new worlds or parallel universes. & sometimes it can even be all of the above, which is certainly the case with Kamen Rider Ghost the Movie: The 100 Eyecons and Ghost’s Fateful Moment. Released as a double bill feature with Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger the Movie: The Heart-Pounding Circus Panic!, The 100 Eyecons is the third theatrical outing for Kamen Rider Ghost – preceded by Movie Wars GenesisKamen Rider 1.

It’s always great khổng lồ see a Kamen Rider production step away from the đô thị into the great outdoors, so The 100 Eyecons immediately gets off to a wonderful start with its largely rural setting – moving from a small village into fields, forest, mountains and waterfalls. It’s locations like these that made Kamen Rider Hibiki such a pleasure to watch, & with the added benefit of high definition visuals like these look even better. Và on đứng đầu of a bigger budget for location shooting the film also goes all-in on the technical element – featuring plenty of CGI sequences (nice to lớn see someone remembered the Ghosstriker Iguanas existed) và big spectacle fight sequences. Undoubtedly this is the best Kamen Rider Ghost has ever looked – vibrant, colourful & explosive. A good tokusatsu movie should always push this element to lớn set it apart from the accompanying show, & if nothing else The 100 Eyecons has pulled this off without a hitch.
Comparatively the actual plot of the film is a fairly simple affair, basically amounting to lớn an evil version of the titular Rider carrying out a larger and more sinister version of the thành tựu quest Kamen Rider Ghost originally centered around. The addition of the historical figures as actual characters is a nice touch, even if most of them are either done largely for comic relief or a far cry from their real-life equivalents (looking at you Darwin). The biggest problem here is that the movie focuses on characters that could have really done with having more relevance in the show outside of “here’s a random mention/cameo because we have a movie coming up”. This especially relates lớn Daigo, as Makoto felt like such a non-character most of the time that having a weighty plotline that wasn’t just “evil clone” would have benefitted him a great deal. The same applies to Argos, who works wonderfully as the antithesis of Takeru & his ideals despite them sharing similar origins and methods. While it all fits comfortably in the movie regardless, at the very least a bit more namedropping would have been nice khổng lồ make him feel lượt thích a bigger part of Alain’s family affairs. But even then, despite his liên kết to the Ganma Prince Alain’s involvement in this film is minimal at best.Things get a little strange towards the climax though, as Argos’ plan descends into both nonsense and outright contradiction of events from the very beginning of the show. For a movie that’s otherwise tried khổng lồ tie itself so closely to lớn the series it comes across as rather odd, and gives way lớn an ending with zero emotional impact because it’s exactly the same thing that was done numerous times there as well. It doesn’t feel like a spoiler khổng lồ say “Takeru dies”, because that’s happened so many times in the course of Kamen Rider Ghost that at this point it feels almost lượt thích parody. Still, once again the visuals completely make up for the story’s shortcomings here – particularly the final battle between Mugen Ghost and Kamen Rider Extremer.
With a name like The 100 Eyecons it shouldn’t be any surprise that this is a film that goes a bit overboard on the movie-exclusive forms and Riders, with a total of six new individual Riders và two exclusive forms. It’s not worth getting too excited about the number of new Riders though, as only one of them is a completely new suit – the others being variations of Ghost, Specter và Necrom. While the likes of the Dark Necroms & Kamen Rider Zero Specter are fairly forgettable, Dark Ghost plays a much bigger part in the film. Despite being a fairly basic repaint, black & white is a colour combination you can’t really go wrong with – arguably making the Dark Ghost suit look a lot better than it perhaps deserves khổng lồ be. That isn’t khổng lồ say 100 Eyecons is completely devoid of creativity though – the Darwin và Napoleon Damashiis are both great additions to the growing range of Parka Ghosts, Napoleon particularly with its wonderfully campy hat, cape và shoulder tassles combo. But the main sự kiện is Kamen Rider Extremer, an imposing (if poorly named) suit that works much better as a dark parallel to Ghost’s Mugen Damashii than Dark Ghost does to lớn Ore.After a couple of years of uncertainty it seems the summer movies are also back on track with regular cameo appearances by the next Rider, as Kamen Rider Ex-Aid appears here just as Ghost did in Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future
. It’s a short but nonetheless sweet appearance by the 2016-17 video clip game-themed Rider, with his portrayal remaining pretty much in character with that of him in his own series. It’s always fun khổng lồ see these Riders in almost a “prototype” stage, và this time it’s done through the various clip game text bubbles looking a little different from how they vị in the show now.
All things considered Kamen Rider Ghost the Movie: The 100 Eyecons & Ghost’s Fateful Moment
is a fairly solid film outing for what many would consider a below-mediocre series, scoring high on the visual element but sometimes lacking when it comes to lớn the finer plot details. The parts in dire need of expansion are things that really should have shown up in the series proper, và thus it’s hard to lớn tell if they’re inclusion here is a fault of the movie or a fault of the show itself. Either way this certainly comes out as one of the more notable parts of Kamen Rider Ghost as a whole, và despite not quite matching up lớn the previous year’s Surprise Future definitely stands above the likes of Gaim’s Great Soccer Battle and Kamen Rider Wizard in Magic Land.
Kamen Rider Ghost the Movie: The 100 Eyecons và Ghost’s Fateful Moment is available now on Blu-Ray and DVD from CDJapan
. This release is Japanese with no English subtitles.

Good review, bro. This is one of the đánh giá that I have been waiting for the long time. Yes, I totally agree that this movie is really enjoyable to watch. Not as great as Surprise Future, but at least much better than Wizard or Gaim's one as you said. Lớn be honest, the most disappointing part about this movie was the fact that Takeru "died" again... Not only that, the ending scene felt so abruptly rushed & made no sense at all. I think that without having the whole Takeru's toàn thân plot, the movie would have ended much better or at least not confusing like this. Another bad part about this movie that I could get that the pacing issues. Having three Riders needed to lớn be focused each made this movie felt so cramped & full. Half of the movie resolves around Makoto's problem with his dad. But, it ends up shoving both Takeru and Alain to the side where they should have given more focus. You would feel this in the last 10 minutes where it was so rushed lượt thích hell.One thing that I want to mô tả that I have watched a đoạn clip review of this movie & the reviewer said that this is actually Ghost's most horrible element. Well, he said that the whole Makoto's dad plot felt so sour, especially in the climax where Makoto actually admired & forgave his father so easily and it didn't make sense at all. Alain's participation also so minimal despite the fact that he is Argos' brother. The reviewer also said that the Eyecons' plot also a bit let down since the movie didn't explore much about it & only acted as a comic relief in the next half of the movie. One thing that actually same was, yeah, everyone will agree that Argos could replace Adel in the series much better và the fact that the ending was a bit let down and disappointing.
