The Kiryu films manage to beat it in special effects consistency (GMK does too, though not by much), but that's all I can think of. All of the movies (Heisei included) have boring characters, poor pacing, laughable dialogue and hit-or-miss acting...these aren't critically great movies, and they aren't supposed to be.
I don't really get how this applies to anything I said, but okay. I almost never watch the 90's films anymore anyway, so take that into consideration. I never said anything about the Heisei films in the first place, nor would I ever insinuate that they were "critically great", because they clearly weren't.

I agree with this, but it still bores me to tears nonetheless. I mean, it's not like I'm alone here. The film only seems to be moderately popular with fans to begin with.
