This is based on a classic manga by Osamu Tezuka and directed by Hajime Sato, who did Kyuketsuki Gokemidoro aka Goke, Body Snatcher From Hell. It features Sonny Chiba leading a super-science team against a guy in a hood that looks vaguely like a space gerbil with 6 eyes, one metal claw hand and one three-fingered E.T. hand. Who shoots lasers. Luckily, they're assisted by a reanimated, gold lamť-clad mummy man from Atlantis who laughs a lot, can fly, and yells stuff like, "Receive the baton of justice!" It's actually very well made and highly enjoyable, with good music, cinematography and effects.
