Honest Trailers Takes On ‘Kamen Rider x Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen’ [Video]
If you were watching tokusatsu shows from 2012, then you probably saw the trailer for Kamen Rider x Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen, a movie where the Japan’s two long-lasting supehero franchises clashed in a war that pit heroes on dirtbikes against heroes with giant robots, for the fate of… I don’t know, the world? It’s usually the world. The trailer wasn’t really clear, but it did hint at lasting repercussions for the heroes and a thrilling, high-stakes battle that would pit all your favorites against each other.
That… wasn’t quite accurate. I mean, to be fair, it definitely was a war between the Kamen Riders and Super Sentai, meaning that it delivered the bare minimum on what was promised in the title, but other than that, not so much. Fortunately, the crew at Honest Trailers have taken the trailer and made it a little more accurate — and also made this movie sound way more awesome than the original.
If you’re curious, Super Hero Taisen was released in 2012 as a big crossover movie between the two franchises, but was prominently focused on the Gokaigers (currently being adapted in America as Power Rangers Super Megaforce) and Kamen Rider Fourze, the shows that were on TV at the time. It was also the introduction of the Go-Busters, and the return of Kamen Rider Decade, and if this is starting to sound complicated, that’s because it is.
See, Kamen Rider Decade (who has the power to turn into previous Kamen Riders) was going around killing the Super Sentai, and the Gokaigers (who have the power to turn into previous Super Sentai) were going around killing Riders, so… well, it’s like the video says. They beat each other up for no apparent reason.
Also, this happens:
It’s probably the best movie ever.
