Ultimate Japanese mutant science-fiction that blends Terminator, Predator and Alien!

Absolutely average duo of hardworking losers got stuck-up in intergalactic chase through The Zone. They help kickboxing female bounty hunter and her AI assistant catching Zeiram, the first unstoppable killing machines in history.

This one definitely fits in the category of guilty pleasures.

Basically, it's about a beautiful female bounty hunter from another planet named Ilya who comes to Earth to stop an evil alien monster named Zeram that has also come here to avoid capture. She and her computer (creatively named Bob) create an alternate dimension that she sends Zeram into in order to fight it without hurting anybody (if an innocent person gets killed, you see, she and Bob lose their bounty hunting licenses). However, a couple of dorky guys from Earth manage to travel to the dimension with her, and so she must not only defeat the monster but protect them. And that's pretty much it- this has one of the simplest plots I've ever seen, but it's an entertaining movie nonetheless- the action is cheesy but fun, and there's plenty of it, with the typical low-budget sci-fi f/x. Ilya is played by a very good looking actress, and her character is something of a cross between Boba Fett and Xena Warrior Princess. And thankfully, the two "comic relief" characters don't get too annoying, as is often the case in action movies that come out of Asia. It's nothing special, but this movie does deliver, so check it out if you get a chance.

Directed by **Keita Amemiya** Starring Yûko Moriyama, Yukijirô Hotaru and Kunihiro Ida.
