NEZHA REBORN (Film Theatrical Release Japan 2021)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

NOTE: This is not intentionally a sequel film to the movie Nezha (2019). 

Nezha Reborn—intriguing action scenes at the beginning of the story allow early audience engagement. Later action scenes fall flat. The story is well written. It engages the concept of the Monkey King and will be more enjoyable if international audiences do some research on the cultural concept of a Monkey King and his engagement with humans. But, this movie can be watched on the face value level because of its good special effects. The audience will comprehend the antagonist and protagonist struggle at street level. Overall, it performs as a high action animated movie that can hold the international teen/adult audience’s attention quite well.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Some action scenes need tweaking for more impact; but overall, many stunts are creative, fresh, and engaging.
