It's NOT Kamen Rider, It's “Machi Action”


Coming this January 18th is an inspirational superhero filmMachi Action”, starring actor Bolin Chen as the Cosmo Universe Space Hero Fly. But due to its show's ratings, a new show will replace it.

Check out the trailer below:



“Machi Action” is an inspiration story of an actor who got his show's axed due to low ratings. And it was replaced by a new show with a cooler suit and a younger actor. What will happen to him now? Will he find a new job?

Space Hero Fly became a topic between tokusatsu fans due to its similarities on different Kamen Riders, including W, Kuuga, and Agito. While, Space Hero Face's suit is nearly similar that of Iron Man's.

Directed by Zhang Shilin, “Machi Action” premieres this January 18th. Check out the film's official Facebook Page for more news about the project.

    What the fuck is this shit!?! It's obviously rip off from Kamen Rider 1 the First, W, Delta, & Agito!! Are they don't have a shame!!


  6. CYAN Says:

    chill guys, it is more of a homage to tokusatsu suit actors, presented as a comedy film, of course it make sense to go with familiar design as it is going for the nostalgia factor.

    Trivia: the kanji/chinese character of the title literally means "Henshin", don't know why they go with "Machi Action" for the English title

    I honestly don't mind that they "borrowed" the suit ideas from Kamen Rider. In fact, this film actually seems kind of interesting.


  8. Anon9935 Says:

    Yeah, it may be a blatent rip off, and one may remember Armor Hero, but get a sense of humor. Personally I would watch it, it looks amusing. Though knowing chinese shows the plot probably will make zero sense.


  9. People need to relaz. It's not ripping off anything a simple homage/comedy. Toku not exclusive to Japan. It just means special effects anyway. That's everywhere.

    this actually looks really hilarious and heart warming. Do you guys have no sense of humor? I'm actually hoping somebody subs this whenever a DVD comes out. Yes the suits look like riders but the story is about the actors behind them. I almost was brought to tears as that kid was in that wheel chair thinking he could grow up to be a hero too. It shows Toku really inspires people of all ages to fight through the hard times. In fact I hope this movie does well.


  11. flamerounin Says:

    yeah, like CYAn says. this looks more like a parody film. and it's also a satire of toku shows.

    This is from taiwan not china


  13. Howard Says:

    holy shit its satonaka


  14. are you fanboys becoming stupid each minute?

    the movie obviously is a homage to toku series. with the twist being that they focus on the lives of the actor potraying the toku series after the toku series ended. thats what the movie is all about.

    its not a blatant ripoff or a new toku show. its a movie about the lives of toku actors.


  15. this actually looks, pretty good xD


  16. am i right in saying that (from the trailer), it looks like all the action and danger with monsters and stuff turns out to be real, and the actor has to really become a hero? or was that just part of the filming of the show within the movie?


  17. Anonymous Says:

    all right everyone please calm down ! this movie is not a tokumovie but instead more like a action drama close to kick-ass ........ the story about the actor chenbolin he used to be a hero in a local tv series but he was replaced by somenew hero due to poor rating thus he must find a way to resurrect his popularity ... nothing has to do with kr or ultra ... its all about tokuactors struggle in succeed and fame

    We need Zebraman!
    His live is betwen black and white!


  19. This isn't a ripoff anymore than Galaxy Quest was a ripoff of Star Trek. It's satire, and it looks pretty good to me. They even have a Godzilla-like suit actor.


  20. Michiyo Says:

    I can honestly say that I'm really looking forward to watch this. I don't know a bit Chinese, but I don't care. I'm sure someone will sub it anyway

    Actually, it's not from China, it's from Taiwan. And if you don't understand the language, don't offer your opinion how it's a rip off or the plot sucks. Story line is about an action hero who's job was taken over by another action hero. It's a comedy movie (in a way) for those of you who understand the language. It's seeing life and things that happens in life through the eyes of a ex-tv-super-hero.
    You really should avoid it if you are going to judge a movie before you see it.

    Just so everyone calms down, this movie has already been approved by Toei Japan. Actually saw it this weekend and it's really good. Would definitely recommend it. Already subtitled guys!
