This is the 1st Kamen Rider theatrical movie. And it's also one of my favorite Kamen Rider movies yet, but it's not the best. There is no such thing as a bad Kamen Rider movie, they are all top-notch and excellent. But this movie missed some of the drama seen in the tv series. It's mostly an action movie, but it does have a plot. But I guess that's the point of a "big budget movie of a tv series", make it into an action picture while trying to keep the charm of the tv series (like the X-files). Well, fortunately this movie does keep most of the charm that can be seen in the tv show. It really isn't until the second movie "Kamen Rider vs. Hell's Ambassador" we get ALL the charm of the tv show.

I give it 9/10.
