It's a movie aimed for the younger generation who have started to work. At the first glance, this movie is just a mediocre action-humor staple with a dash of attempted romance. Hence why I gave the rewatch value an 'okay', but not 'great'.

The movie itself is weird (especially the sketchy company boss you'll find out later on) if you're not familiar with Japan's societal condition, but rather, it's something to think about if you can relate with it Hero Mania is about choosing to take action against what you know is wrong. It's about choosing to fight and to be swallowed by your passion because you know that you can't just be complacent and go with the flow. It's in the how the movie portrayed how bad the society can be if you choose to plug your ears and close your eyes.

Long talks about a young man, Nakatsu (Masahiro Higashide), who is having a mid-life crisis ("I'm over 30!"), Because he feels that his life is not going anywhere and his job as an employee Of convenience It is very unsatisfactory. But suddenly one day he meets Toshida (Masataka Kubota), a boy with a bit of autism who is a master of the martial arts, which he uses to fight against random thugs on the street.
It's not an elaborate movie, it's unexpected and full of action! The main thugs are a bit remnant of those from Arnold Schwarzenegger's "Last Action Hero," with an evil and sophisticated mastermind who controls a psychological killer in a yellow raincoat that our young "Kick-Ass" watchers must dress to make The streets safe again.
The film is a smart take on the watchful genre, and has lots of silly comedy as well as some scarier moments, that's all, the narrative is tedious and the elements that make up "Hero Mania: Life" leave a lot to be desired.
