The movie review for the Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider Double & Decade: Movie Great War 2010 have been posted (although the spoiler review had been posted weeks back) via Igadevil's Kamen Rider Blog.
Here's an excerpt of the spoiler free review:
This is it! The ending we've all been waiting for since the DecaDriver closed in on Natsumi's yelling face. The beginning we've all been wanting to see since Double had his first explosive transformation. The movie that brings together the Riders of 2009 for the first time... again.
Because this is a 3-part movie, I will be reviewing it 3 parts, albeit all in one post.
Kamen Rider Decade: Final Chapter
Long story short: It's a fun old romp, but not exactly what we were all waiting for I think. Given that I am getting out this cut-down Spoiler-Free version a few weeks after the full review, I've had more time to think some things over, and read some of the reactions of other people to the earlier review, and the best thing to say is this: make sure you watch this one, guys.
While we all know that I'm always right and my opinion matters more than anything, you'll still need to sit down and check this out for yourself when the chance comes, because it's likely to provoke a wise variety of responses, not unlike the Decade TV series itself.
Kamen Rider Double: Begins Night
I haven't talked about Double much here, or anywhere, because to be honest so far the show has fallen into that odd realm where it's very good, but I just can't get excited about it. There's nothing particularly wrong with it, at least nothing that that other Rider shows aren't afflicted with, and yet so far it's just sort of been there, doing its thing, but watching it feels more like a weekly habit than something to be excited about.
Part of the reason for this is that it's coming after Decade, which, like it or hate it, is a show that got attention. And it got my attention, owed to the fact that I really really like it. After a couple years of Rider shows which were good, but aimed more at other people than they were at me, here's a show which knew how to press the right buttons, the way Blade or Agito did. I don't think Decade was perfect, but even at its worst it always had me interested in what was going on. That's a hard thing to pull off.
Movie Great War 2010
There isn't much I can say about this at all, other than it's completely off-the-wall crazy, doesn't make much sense, and it's a ton of fun. A fitting end to the movie.
All in all this is one helluva movie. I think All Riders is still the Rider movie of 2009 because it's a more cohesive package, plus there is the whole "All Riders" thing. But this is pretty awesome too.
