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 Ridersand 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.
Q: Can you tell us about Kamen Rider Fourze? I understand if it's too painful to discuss. -- @Desgardes
A:Kamen Rider Fourze is the single best piece of superhero mass media in the past ten years. And considering that the past ten years also brought us stuff like The Dark Knight, Batman: The Brave and the Bold and that Avengers movie that everybody likes, that's no small thing for me to say.
As for how I know this -- and why Des here refers to it as a painful subject -- it's because the final episode of Kamen Rider Fourze made me cry harder than anything else I've ever seen. That last episode of Brave and the Bold put tears in my eyes, yes, but Fourze had me sobbing so hard that my neighbors started building an ark and gathering up all the beasts of the land in pairs lest my tears cause a flood that wiped away the sins of man.
