In Japan, the Kamen Rider series is so famous that no one seems to know it, even by heart each character. The brand produced by the Toei Company studio is considered “one of the top works” of the Tokusatsu genre – the famous Japanese superhero film series. A series of works that once “stormed” on the Asian small screen, became a classic brand, associated with the childhood of many generations.
In particular, Kamen Rider Zero-One (Vietnamese title: Masked Knight: AI Danger) is the film that plays an important role for the brand, opening a new era (era) called Reiwa (Lan Hoa). Thanks to the attractive script and many novel elements, the work is highly appreciated, always on the list of the best parts of all time voted by the fandom.
Bright upgrade with many changes
The story of the film is set in a fantasy future when technology completely changes the world. Every day, humans live with HumaGears – robots that look and act like humans. 12 years ago, the rebellious organization Metsubou Jinrai used to take advantage of a security hole to “hack” the HumaGears, causing them to rebel and fight against humanity. After many years of absence, the members of the criminal group suddenly returned with the same plan but more sinister plot.
In the midst of that, comedian Aruto Hiden (Fumiya Takahashi) suddenly inherited Hiden Intelligence, becoming the CEO of the corporation after his sudden death. To fight the rebellion and rebellion of the HumaGears, he must find a way to become the “superman” Kamen Rider Zero-One, thereby regaining peace for mankind.

In charge of the script for the series is Yuya Takahashi – a famous writer who has created the success of many Kamen Rider movies. Therefore, Yuya completely knows how to refresh while keeping the spirit of the brand, without offending the fans.
The work attracts the attention of the massive character system. Accompanied by Aruto Hiden are the female secretary IZ (Noa Tsurushima), the tech-savvy Yua Yaiba (Hiroe Igeta) or Isamu Fuwa (Ryutarou Ukada) – the talented leader of the AIMS anti-riot task force.. told, with a duration of up to 46 episodes, many important characters did not appear immediately, but slowly revealed themselves when the movie was halfway through.
In addition, Aruto Hiden’s personality and thoughts also change over time. Viewers seem to witness the growth of the main character, from an unknown comedian to a superhero, having a great influence on the world.
The production design part is invested
As it is the 30th film, Masked Knights: The AI Threat is commemorative for the entire series. Therefore, the work has an impressive, well-invested and detailed look compared to its predecessors. The team interweaves the real context and CGI techniques to create a future society that is both modern but equally dangerous and risky.
The first impression the audience can recognize is the iron armor of the characters. From the front line to the villain, all have eye-catching looks, designed in a futuristic style, creating a fresh atmosphere for the series. For example, the main character Aruto Hiden with his striking lemon yellow armor, is completely different from previous superheroes. Meanwhile, the guy Isamu Fuwa has a unique cross-body armor between two colors, half white and half blue.
The graphics and computer effects in the film are also outstandingly invested. Many segments are carefully recreated to bring a feeling of both authenticity and voyeurism, no less than European-American television productions. In particular, the battle scenes are elaborately choreographed, creating suspense and maintaining a suspenseful atmosphere throughout the episodes.
It is known that the producers faced many difficulties because the filmmaking process was heavily affected by the Covid-19 epidemic. However, the whole crew overcame everything to bring the most complete footage to the fans.
