Tokusatsu Review Kamen Rider Taisen: Part 7: End and analysis

For the previous parts of this review Prologue, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, and Part 6

Yep apparently the Shōwa Riders were being serious about their beef with the Heisei Riders. Takashi says that part of it was to fool Badan. But the other half was to take their disapproval out on the Heisei riders. Gaim of course points out that Takashi's reason makes no sense and that there's no reason to fight. Takashi, being the stubborn bucket of bolts that he is just transforms and the two sides start their fight. Now, before this movie was released there was a fan poll to ask who should win the final fight, the Shōwa Riders or the Heisei Riders. Really, the only thing that changes are who wins the final fight and the version of the ending song. We'll cover the ending that won the fan vote and then the one that lost. Luckily for me, the Heisei Riders won the fan poll so I'll cover that first. No matter what ending Narutaki watches over the final fight asking who will win in the end, the first Rider or the latest Rider. Ichigo prepares to land his Rider kick when Gaim notices a flower behind him. Gaim then takes the full force of the kick. Ichigo prepares to land the final blow when he says this.
All the other Riders stop their fights and Narutaki explains for the audience why Ichigo surrendered.
Thanks Captain obvious!
Ichigo then says that strength based on Kindness might be true strength, if Gaim would go so far as to protect even a single flower. Um dude, you are the oldest Rider alive, you should have known this already! Whatever Ichigo then offers his hand in friendship to Gaim.

Gaim charges up for his finishing move while Ichigo just stands there. Gaim then stops powering up.
Just like the other ending the other Riders stop and Narutaki says why Gaim surrendered.
Apparently because he was expecting quite a bit from Gaim's power. Gaim then basically says the same thing that Ichigo said in the other ending. That strength based on Kindness might be true strength. Um Gaim, you should know this already! You were the one who, all though out this movie were criticizing the cold-hardheartedness of the Shōwa Riders! Ichigo says that he's impressed that Gaim noticed and commemorates him. What a crock. Thank whoever is up there that the Heisei ending is now the cannon one. It's more consistent given how the two are portrayed in this movie. So to wrap things up both generations of Riders shake hands with their opposite number, Narutaki says something that makes my blood boil given what little we know about him.
And all the Riders go back to where they were before all of this, hopefully to sleep this movie off like a bad hangover. Roll credits.
 Kamen Rider Taisen is nothing but a mess. Quite frankly I haven't seen this much mischaracterization since JLA Act of God. Most of the Shōwa Riders act completely inconsistently from how they were portrayed, not just from their staring series but also their more recent appearances. The cameos from the Sentai characters were completely pointless, why were they there? This was purely a Rider affair, there was zero reason for the ToQuger, Daigo or Shwartz to be in this thing. But the main problem is, of course the Shōwa Riders being dicks. They come off as grumpy old men who think that "the kids these days" aren't up to snuff because life hasn't kicked them in the gut as hard as them. One principal rule of any team up or crossover is to never make one side look better then the other and this movie committed that sin in spades! I need to calm down after this movie. I wonder what's on t.v?
Eh, better then TMZ.

Tokusatsu Review Kamen Rider Taisen: Part 6: The end of pain?

Please be sure to read, comment, spread the links, re-tweet and follow me on Twitter @OnDavidsBrain! and support me on Patreon.
Where we last left off Fifteen was fighting against Wizard who uses his Bind spell to try and hold down Fifteen. Fifteen however switches to Wizard arms and easily breaks through it. Fourze backs up Wizard, however Fifteen just switches to Fourze arms and continues to pound the two, even with W and Decade the four Riders get smacked down by Fifteen, finishing them all at once by switching to Decade arms. Gaim calls out Fifteen, Fifteen decides to stop screwing around and switches to Gaim arms, to accept the final one on one fight. Porcupine-Roid is firing on several Riders, however Baron, Ryugun Kiwi arms and Zangetsu-Shin show up for a rematch.
Yeah, I'm keeping that spoiler to myself.
After that bit of hilarious hindsight the three Armored Riders over power Porcupine-Roid and destroy that rejected Predacon. Meanwhile the spirits of the dead are terrorizing the civilians, one of which decides to interrupt Faiz.
Nobody gives a shit about you, Kusaka!
But for some reason Faiz does. Skullasaurus in the mean time knocks out Gabutyra when, NO NO NO!
Yep; they show up. Ressha Sentai ToQuger. I, absolutely HATE THIS SERIES! I could go into further details, but to sum up at least 50% of my complaints of ToQuger, it would be because of this guy!
You ever have that one character that for some ungodly reason you cannot stand the sight off? Right is that guy for me. He is my Tidus, my Shinji Akari, my Lamar Davis, my Roman Bellic, my Chris Brown! Just the one character that for what ever reason whenever you see him, he just sends you into pure, unreasonable rage! You want to know why? Then just watch ToQuger to find out for yourself. Though at the time of this post ToQuger isn't over yet so I will wait until it's finished to give this show the beatdown it may or may not deserve. Anyway the ToQuger transform and summon their mech ToQ-Oh.
And the thing looks terrible.
One of my biggest complaints for ToQuger is that designs for the Heroes, from their suits to the majority of their Mechs looks horribly lazy, and for the the Sentai that is themed on "imagination" that is a very big problem. ToQ-Oh is just five trains lined up side by side. Now for this movie, the big bad, the Generalissimo of Badan do you think that he should be destroyed by the Kamen Riders, the enemy he's been trying to destroy and vice-versa? Nah, just give that honor to the Sentai members that only showed up at the last 20 minutes of the movie.
Anyway, while the ToQugers hold off the walking Jurassic Park logo we shift back to the fight between Gaim and Fifteen. Fifteen is of course giving Gaim delicious pain and screaming "Who's your daddy?" Gaim of course doesn't know the safety word. Ichigo then throws Gaim a Lockseed that he literally pulls out of his ass!
What else does it look like?

He literally, pulled that out of his ass!
With that horrifying nightmare fuel out of my head Gaim then transforms into his movie exclusive from. Kamen Rider Gaim Ichigo(#1) arms.
Strike a pose ya'll!
We then cut from this moment of awesome to ZX pointing out that the Mega Reverse Machine is almost finished! All the Riders capable of flight go to intercept and destroy it. Decade manages to get to where Shuu is strapped into the device, freeing him. With Shuu freed and out of harms way, the Riders are now free to go all out! X and Wizard Infinity Style prepare to fire when they are intercepted by Faiz, who blocks their attacks forcing the three to power down. Haruto asks what the hell Takumi was thinking, him saying that his friend is coming back to life and that he doesn't think that's a bad thing! You really weren't paying attention today were you? If that thing finishes, you are all dead, but I guess it's all worth it to bring back a despicable, irredeemable asshole right dude?

But Haruto mentioned the bit of continuity I brought up in his and Gaim's crossover movie about Koyomi coming back as an evil mage, but Takumi is still stuck in moron mode which Jin thankfully tries to bring him out of by delivering a nasty right hook.
Let's see you grit those teeth!
After that blow of common sense Jin tells him to stop obsessing over the past and live for the future. Of course this doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense given Kusaka and Takumi's relationship which I disused earlier. Haruto then gives his last hope spiel when the ghost of assholes past shows up again.
I am a Shadow, the true self! Can't you just die already?
A real friend right? Takumi flashes back to Jin treating the hostage takers' wound back at the dinner and tells Shadow Kusaka to piss off. Where he then gets his Persona in the form of Faiz Blaster Mode as Haruto and Jin transform with him and blast away Kusaka, good riddance to bad rubbish. The three then lead the charge as the remaining Kamen Riders use their Rider Kicks to penetrate the exterior of the Badan base. Once inside, we see Wizard Infinity Style, X and Faiz Blaster Mode use their strongest attacks to annihilate the base and the Mega Reverse Machine. With the machine destroyed and the spirits gone, all that's left is to clean up the stragglers. ToQ-Oh gets knocked down, Daigo telling Gabutyra to show his bravery. That has Gabutyra transform into the Kyouryuger Ressha.
You know what? I don't care. I just don't care.
Then the Den-Liner shows up. Now, don't get me wrong I like Den-O, hell Den-O is my very first Kamen Rider series that I finished. But I can't stand how Toei keeps bringing back Den-O like this. Because, just like Pyramid Head in Silent Hill, Den-O got popular, so popular that Toei just, won't, let him die! Den-O's series was good, as well as the three main movies. But since Decade, Toei has been pimping Den-o out like a Brothel with terrible movie after terrible movie and pointless and harmful use after pointless and harmful use. Also, ever since "Let's Go Kamen Rider", every time Den-O is involved in a movie, and he has a speaking role the plot goes down like a cheap call-girl. However this time doesn't count since Den-O and ToQuger are both train themed, so this does make sense to me. (Also Den-O and ToQuger were written by the same person, making even more sense.) Anyway the three combined their mechs into the movie exclusive mess that is ToQ-Oh Kyouryuujin.

Because Zebras!
With this, unholy chimera the ToQugers finishes off the Generalissimo with every other Den-O train, including Zeronos' train. Whatever, the big bad is dead, now to end this thing by finishing off Fifteen. Gaim calls him out by asking how can he even care about Shuu wants if he doesn't even care what he wants? Fifteen says that even if his wish was granted, it still wouldn't make up for the pain of his death.
A: Hey dude, I've been there, do you need someone to talk too? B: Come on, suck it up Cupcake.
Gaim goes for a bit of both telling Fifteen that he's just running from his problems. He finally finishes Fifteen with his Ichigo squash Rider Kick which destroys not only the Fifteen Lockseed but Fifteen's Sengoku driver. Now that the driver is gone I have to call him by his actual name Ren. Gaim tells Ren that he'll never escape his pain unless he faces it. Shuu and the rest of the riders show up with Shuu starting to fade into light. Shuu then tells everyone to tell those who are alive that their futures are bright. Kid you are not in a Mr Japan Jr competition, can the shmaltz.
I, I can't make fun here. I really do feel for this scene.
Gaim asks if there is a way to grant Shuu's wish. Decade said that Ichigo and the rest of the Shōwa Riders should be able to do it if they combine their powers.
And what happened, then? Well, in the world of Riders they say - that Ichigo's small heart grew three sizes that day. And then - the true meaning of Christmas came through, and Ichigo found the strength of *ten* Riders, plus two!
But we already saw the power of Merchandising!
With your powers combined I am Captain Planet!
Thankfully instead of that cheesy Silver Surfer clone showing up the Riders instead teleport Shuu to the lighthouse so he can say goodbye to his mom and dad.
"thump" "thump" That hits me right where I live.
Saki: Ren Aoi, where the hell have you been? Ren: Well honey the good news is it didn't involve alcohol. The bad news was, that it did involve an evil organization trying to merge the Neitherrealm with Earthrealm to bring our son back. Saki: You're sleeping on the couch for a month! Ren: I know.
So, now the bad guys are defeated, the kid gave his parents his final good bye and we can all go home and.
Stay tuned for the last part of this nightmare and my final thoughts about the movie.

Tokusatsu Review Kamen Rider Taisen Part 5: The power of the Shwartz!

Please be sure to read, comment, spread the links, re-tweet and follow me on Twitter @OnDavidsBrain! and support me on Patreon.
Now that the Mega Reverse Project is underway Ambassador Darkness mobilizes every single member of the Badan forces (except Schwarz because the dude really needs to talk with his agent) to take the surface world. In response Kouta tells Tsukasa that even if its down to the two of them they'll crush Badan. Takumi shows up saying to make that three. Takumi says that he's joining up not only to fulfill a dead boys wish, but also to find out the real reason why the Shōwa Riders are their enemies. So then the Fifth, tenth and Fifteenth Heisei Riders run to the battleground. But then they run into a very angry roadblock!
We're still in this movie!
Normally I'd be ecstatic; but given how you guys have been acting I and most of the audience are more then a little cross. However our heroes have back up not only from Kamen Rider Joker but also from Kamen Riders Kiva, OOO (Pronounced O's) and Wizard. Joker says that he fights for his clients, another message from his late boss. Wizard says that him, Kiva and OOO were the only ones they could get though. Dude, OOO is one of the strongest Riders ever, and Kiva is one of my top five favorite Riders, you've got this in the bag. Kouta agrees with me saying that they are more then enough. Kouta then asks why the Shōwa riders are getting in their way. Ichigo and Nigo basically repeat their "this is our fight, piss off noobs" shtick from earlier. Tsukasa then asks why the Shōwa Riders why they think that the Heisei riders are responsible for bringing Badan to the surface. Here it comes, where I get into rant overload, batten down the hatches and hide your children! Ichigo says that Badan, the land of the dead, was revived, because the Heisei Riders can't let go of their feelings for the dead.

Oh wait you're being serious then let me laugh even harder.

Okay, where to start? First let's address the hypocrisy of that statement shall we? You claim that this was all on the Heisei Riders part; that their feelings to bring back their dead loved ones was what brought Badan back. Okay, from the remaining Shōwa Riders alone I can see at least four of you that  had friends and loved ones die right in front of you during your own series. V3's Father, Mother and Sister were brutally killed right in front of him, if I recall correctly that was what drove him to ask Ichigo and Nigo to make him into a Cyborg and become V3 in the first place! X became a Rider after his father built him into a Cyborg before he was killed by G.O.D (The Government of Darkness). Also his then girlfriend; she and her twin sister turned out to be Interpol agents sent in to investigate G.O.D, she was converted into a Cyborg against her will and was killed. Amazon counts for this too, not only did the man who raised him when his parents' plane crashed in the Amazon die giving him the Gi Gi armlet. But there was also this guy.
This is the Mole Beastman.
He was a defector from Geddon (the first organization that Amazon fought) who joined Amazon after the Rider saved his life. Mole then gave up his life to save millions of people from the poisons of the Mushroom Beastman by getting sprayed in the Mushroom Beastman's poison, fighting through the, no doubt excruciating pain to get the samples back to a doctor to save the victims. Lastly there is Black. I only have two words.
Shadow Moon
Point number two, Ichigo goes on to say that the main reason why Badan came back is because the Heisei Riders want to try reviving their dead loved ones. Now, first off, not all of the Heisei Riders have dead loved ones, so that's strike one! Now strike two is that if we take that statement to be literal, only two of the Hesei Riders have tried this! At the end of OOO's series, his main companion Ankh died when his main core metal was split in half. But as we saw in OOO and Fourze's crossover movie, (which I may remind you that the Legendary seven Riders played a significant part in the movie, helping the two Heisei Riders!) It will be fixed in the future and Ankh comes back no problem. The second is Wizard. The main source of the conflict of that show came from when the father of Wizard's charge, Koyomi tried to bring her back to life in a ritual that not only created the Phantoms (the monsters that Wizard fought) but also gave Haruto his powers as Wizard. And when she finally did die Haruto then went to find a good resting place for her, and when Koyomi did get revived in Gaim and Wizards movie, that wasn't a result of Haruto's actions either. It also turned her into a bad guy. Haruto knew full well that you can't bring back the dead and that there are somethings that magic can't solve! Strike three comes when X says that these supposed feelings gathered into Shuu's dad creating Fifteen, I already said that not every Rider has dead loved ones, or even if they did they probably died when they were too young to remember them anyway. Finally that reason paints the Shōwa Riders as thinking the Heisei Riders are weak because they care for and respect the memories of their dead loved ones! The Shōwa Riders are dicks in this movie, and hypocrites. So the Shōwa Riders say that by killing the Heisei Riders Badan's world will be sealed for good. Tsukasa says that that reason is bull. Ichigo then asks Tsukasa "Aren't you on a journey to find a place to die?" Tsukasa then gives one of his big speeches that sum up to this "I met friends on my travels through the worlds, most of them are already dead, but I won't forget them. Because I keep them eternally in my heart." (Gag me.) Takumi joins in saying that everyone lives and dies and that it doesn't matter whether someone you care for is dead or not. Kouta caps this off saying that if that wish is dear to them that they will grant it for them.
Compassion isn't weakness, you should know that better then anyone, asshole.
Kouta responds to this by saying if that's what Ichigo calls the Riders path, then he doesn't need that strength. With this, the lines are drawn, Kouta, Tsukasa and Takumi transforming to lead the charge against the remaining Shōwa Riders. Um, guys, Badan is still out there, you could finish your pissing contest after you save Earthrealm from merging with the Netherrealm. Oh wait that would require the Shōwa Riders to pull their heads out of their ass', there goes me and my logic again, my mistake! This fight, is really not that good. The camera is way too close to the action and it's way too short to get any enjoyment out of it. Nigo and Decade cross-counter each others Rider Punches and both get turned into Lockseeds. Wizard crushes Amazon, Riderman flings OOO around and beats him (Riderman is just a human with a special arm he couldn't hold a candle to OOO) Joker and Black take each other out with colliding Rider Kicks, with Gaim finishing off V3 and Riderman with a single sword stroke. Ichigo wipes out Kiva with a Rider Kick, reducing him to a Lockseed. So now it's just Ichigo and X v.s Faiz and Gaim. X and Faiz take each other out and are reduced to Lockseeds. While all that is going on Badan's machine finishes it's ascension with the Generalissimo saying that the Mega Reverse Machine is activating.
Um, what?
Yep it turns out Ambassador Darkness was an impostor.
Aka Kamen Rider ZX.
He knew what Badan was up too so he planted himself within Badan in order to keep an eye on them, learn about the Mega Reverse Project and destroy them from the inside. Now that the Mega Reverse Machine was revealed, Ryou throws one of his Cross Shuriken at the machine destroying it. However The Generalissimo knew about Ryou's plan, what he destroyed was a decoy. Fifteen then stabs Ryou in the chest for his troubles and throws him down to where Gaim is. It turns out the real Mega Reverse Machine was Badan's base itself. The base then rises out of the ground and flies over the city.
Oooh, Astronema's gonna sue somebody!
To make things even worse The Generalissimo then has the two remaining Riders surrounded by all of his monster forces. Ryou however has a plan, the reason why he was gathering the Rider Lockseeds wasn't just for swag. Ryou first transforms into ZX and, following Ichigo's plan uses Gaim's power to summon all of the Riders who apparently were teleported to the Helheim forest after they were turned into Lockseeds. ZX then uses his Micro chain to gather all of the Rider Lockseeds and place them into Gaim. This is the real power of the Kamen Riders.
I'm not even kidding, the special merchandizing Lockseeds, were the Deus Ex Machina of the movie. Could you get any more blatant? No, I'm not one of those anti corporate tree-huggers, the fact I'm telling you this on an Apple Computer ought to be proof of that alone. But just a little bit of subtlety; that's all I'm asking for. Especially when I know where Lockseeds come from this makes no sense. At least when they had the Rider Lockseeds in Gaim and Wizards movie they had the tools of the Riders' power transferred into the Lockseeds, so that explains where they came from. Like OOO's Taka core metal, Fourze's astroswitch, W's Joker memory etc. Just explain where did these come from. Was it a spell? Magic? You know what, I don't care. I'm just going to say a wizard did it, a wizard known as Yogurt. Anyway Gaim absorbed all the Lockseeds and summoned Cracks in the sky where all of the Kamen Riders come out of.
Inspirational poster makers, here's a free one for you.
So in other words the whole Rider generational war thing was just to set up a giant Trojan horse for this big moment. Now normally I would be caught off guard by this and say I didn't see it coming, except that this was the exact same damn plan they had in Super Hero Taisen! I'm not even joking. Fifteen just gloats, saying that once the machine is turned on they're all dead anyway. And sure enough Porcupine-Roid activates the machine and then the ground starts to fold back.
Think that the filmmakers might have seen "Inception" before making this movie? Didn't think so.
With that Fifteen transforms and the fight is on like Donkey Kong. The fight is mostly another cluster crap with montages of the Riders facing off with the Badan forces. Once again the editing goes too fast for us to get invested and the camera is just zoomed in too close to get a good scope of the action. The fight seems to be going in the Rider's favor until the Generalissimo decides to get in on the action and assumes his true form.
Oh god! It's an even dumber version of that zombie, T-Rex thing from Resident Evil 6
That's when the Generalissimo uses Meteor to attack ally and foe alike, knocking the Riders around quite good. Now it's time for me to talk about the full title of this movie. This is Kamen Rider Taisen featuring Super Sentai, but as mentioned with Schwarz's cameo earlier, Super Sentai finally gets in on the action. As indicated when Daigo aka KyoryuRed from Kyoryuger shows up out of nowhere and sends out his Mech Gabutyra to hold off the love child of Skeletor and Barney.
I sense there might be a bit of an advantage in the Generalissimo's favor. Don't you think?
"Now, where are the other Kyoryugers?" You may be asking? Well here they are.
The rest of the Kyoryugers as.
One of the fans' biggest problems with Kyoryuger is that far too much focus was given to Daigo, and I tend to agree. Sure other members got development but most of it was still given to Daigo. But I won't get into the specifics right now. Especially when we still have the last Fifteen minutes of the movie left to cover, and we get cameos from my most hated Sentai Team so far. All aboard!

Tokusatsu Review Kamen Rider Taisen Part 4: Patience is Breakable

After the second most obvious joke I could ever make in this review, Fifteen uses some form of pyrokinesis to burn Shuu's "I hate you" message. Fifteen says that it's unnecessary since apparently Shuu will be coming back to life.
Sorry pal, but you don't exactly strike me as a White Mage.
Kouta, obviously asks what the hell he's talking about and Fifteen explains that Badan isn't actually an Underground Empire, but actually an Empire of the dead! The big plan is to use Shuu's 7th dimension power to reverse the world of the dead into the world of the living. Called, the Mega Reverse Project.
I would have totally gone with this plan, but they never called me, uuuuuuuuhhhhhhh.
Shuu points out the obvious, that if Netherrealm is merged with EarthRealm his Mom will die, thus why he ran from Badan. Fifteen, not exactly having everything right upstairs says that if Shuu comes back to life Shuu's mom will be happy. And dead, don't forget dead. Shuu refuses to help so Dad needs to spank him, so he pulls out his Sengoku driver. Kouta, not one for that type of tough-love parenting agrees with Shuu and says that there's no reason for Badan to take away the future from the living. Fifteen then transforms saying that he won't let anything get in his way. Kouta then pulls out his driver in response, they both transform and begin their rematch. Round two, FIGHT! Gaim starts by clearing a path through the Combat-Roids for Shuu to run away while he fights Fifteen. Gaim tries to reason with him saying that he knows what it's like losing someone you care for. Probably even more so then Fifteen since at this point in continuity Gaim found out the truth about Yuya. Fifteen still says that Gaim can't beat him. Fifteen is almost about to kill Gaim when Decade shows up to save him. Decade tells Shuu that his mom is waiting for him at the lighthouse; Gaim then gives Decade a Rose attacker Lockseed to give the two an escape vehicle while Gaim holds off Fifteen.
Now that's one hell of a green-thumb.
Gaim says that even though the paper is gone, Shuu can still make things up with his Mom. Decade and Shuu ride off with Gaim switching to his Ichigo (Strawberry) arms to continue the fight. Tsukasa powers down for some dumb reason; which lets him and Shuu fall off the bike when they're attacked by General Jark. But then Jark gets intercepted by two Shōwa Riders, specifically Kamen Riders Black, and Black Rx.
Sorry for the Masked Rider flashbacks.
Okay, this is impossible as I will explain. Black and Black Rx, are supposed to be the same person, Kotaro Minami. Also, no this isn't a power transfer or legacy hero type of thing. Black Rx is just an evolved version of Black. So for both of these incarnations of the same person to show up at the same time is impossible. Also, this movie never gives an explanation where the extra Black classic came from. But for the movies plot of all Fifteen of the Shōwa era Kamen Riders to appear in this movie and give us the 15 Vs 15 thing, I have no choice but to let this slide. Anyway, both of the Blacks take care of the goons and finish off Jark with a double Rider Kick. Before you think that this is a good thing, remember, in this movie, the Shōwa riders are dicks. The Blacks say Tsukasa is their next target claiming that the Heisei Riders are to blame for Badan showing up and that they can't forgive the Heisei riders for that and must be taken down with Badan. No, I'm not using the Nick Cage "Bullshit" clip, I'm saving that for when we find out why the Shōwa Riders think this. The Blacks then get intercepted by Shotaro, who now knows that it's all out war between the two generations of Riders. Tsukasa pulls out his driver, but Shotaro says that he'll handle the Blacks saying that he wants to protect all of Futo, even if it's just a turtle or a kid who's already dead. Instead of pulling out his W driver he instead pulls out his Lost Driver.
This is the Double Driver, which Shotaro normally uses to merge with Philip to become W.
This is the lost driver, which can be used without needing Philip.
I'm guessing that Shotaro only pulls out the Double driver these days in case the opponent he's fighting is too strong for him alone. So this way, he doesn't have to go overboard when fighting. You don't need to use a Shotgun to open a can of beans is what I'm getting at. Also, Shotaro felt it would be appropriate for two old black riders to fight the new black rider as he transforms into Kamen Rider Joker. Joker is holding off the two Blacks when Kaito shows up to help him as Baron. The Blacks have an advantage over Baron so he switches to Mango arms.
We all know that mango can fight with the best of them, ahahaha!
With that Baron is back in the game and helps Joker fight off the Blacks. Um Rx, you do know that you can change forms too right? Don't want to switch to Bio Rider and outmaneuver the guy with the large, heavy melee weapon, or get to a distance and pick them off with Robo Rider since neither of your opponents have projectile weapons? Hello? Anybody? Oh wait, heh I'm sorry, there goes me and my logic again, my mistake! Ignoring what I actually know about his powers Black Rx just goes for his revolcrash finishing move but gets defeated with a combo of Joker's Maximum drive Rider Kick and Baron's Mango Squash finisher. When Black Rx is defeated he turns into a Lockseed. But Joker and Baron aren't out of the woods yet as Black gets backup from Kamen Riders Amazon and Super-1. We get ourselves another chunk of character inconsistency pie since Amazon is as big on friendship as Fourze. Hell from Fourze's hyper battle video the two get along like peas in a pod. But enough of pointing how this movie is stupid, back to the fight. Amazon and Super-1 are about to finish off Joker with their finishing moves, but Baron intercepts them and is defeated.
Now my collection is one step closer to, holy crap a giant rock!
We then cut to Ambassador Darkness holding the Black Rx Lockseed saying that this isn't enough. He instructs his Monster army to collect all the Rider Lockseeds. Tsukasa finally manages to bring Shuu to the lighthouse, Tsukasa telling Shuu that his Mom has been to the lighthouse many times since he died. Shuu runs to see his mother one more time.
I'm back bitches!
Yep, Fifteen teleports in with Combat-Roids who finally manage to capture Shuu. Fifteen tells Tsukasa to stop getting in the way. Tsukasa says the same thing saying that Shuu wanted to fix things with his Mom so badly he gained the power to reverse anything. He asks Fifteen if he understood what that meant. Fifteen just asks who he is, Tsukasa gives his catchphrase "I'm just a passing though Kamen Rider, Remember that." and he transforms into Decade. The two Riders fight, with the Roids taking Shuu away. Decade says not to get to cocky since Fifteens number is bigger then his. Fifteen says that unlike Decade he can transform into all the Heisei Riders, including Decade. He then pulls out his Heisei Rider Lockseed and transforms into Decade arms.
Decade plus 15, shouldn't this be Kamen Rider 25?
Decade counters by transforming into Kamen Rider Hibiki using Hibiki's fire powers to gain an advantage but Fifteen just uses Hibiki's weapons as well, throwing the fireball back. Decade then transforms into Kamen Rider Kuuga but Fifteen then just switches to Fourze arms and blasts Decade back to his base form.
The only time Fourze looks legitimately threatening.
Fifteen decides that playtime is over and switches to what he calls the ultimate transformation. He switches to Gaim arms.
Aaaaaand boned!
 Fifteen then overpowers Decade, forcing Tsukasa to power down. The real Gaim shows up and sees Shuu getting taken away. Fifteen intercepts Gaim and, like last time Gaim can barely touch this guy. Gaim then pulls out his Kachidoki Lockseed and transforms into his super form, Kachidoki arms.
For the record, my favorite Super Form design.
Fifteen then tries to send out more Combat-Roids to stop Gaim, but as expected Gaim just swats them away like flies. Gaim pulls out his awesome DJ Gun, sets it to its low DJ Pitch and blows the goons away with his hand cannon. Fifteen takes over with the two finally on even ground. Gaim switches the DJ gun to its sword mode and the two fire energy blasts, which collide and forces Kouta to power down while Fifteen and the Roids teleport away with Shuu, Shuu saying to protect everyone's futures. Tsukasa questions this coming from someone who's already dead. Kouta is offended by how Tsukasa said that, asking to take Shuu's feelings into consideration. Tsukasa responds by saying they need to hurry gathering the Heisei Riders, and that this is for making Shuu's wish come true. We cut to, oh not again!
The movie's restarted!
No, no we just finally caught up. While the Riders are slugging the crap out of each-other we get a new face showing up.
No, really? I though he was a representative of Carealot.

How brief you may ask? All Schwarz does is say that the Shadow Line would benefit from this and that he already sent one of his Kurainer trains to attack Kamen Rider Den-O. He might as well have said that he was there to raid their fridge. To be fair he does cause the Den liner to be destroyed, again. Tsukasa sees this while right next to him Kamen Rider Super-1 is fighting against Kamen Rider Agito, Super-1 using his Elec hands while Agito goes into his Trinity form. Both of their finishing moves collide and both are turned into Lockseeds. We then see the Pink energy getting really, really, dangerous as it turns into a geyser of evil energy, erupting out of the ground, Tsukasa telling Kouta that Badan is finally making their move. We then cut to the Generalissimo of Badan (the aforementioned Giant rock) giving a speech to his troops as their super weapon rises to the surface. Shuu is hooked up inside of the machine pleading with his father not to go through with this. Though we still have about half an hour of this thing left to go, which I will be tackling half of next time.
