Everyday slacker Joe has only two interests in life, and arguably, the screen hero Captain Blue takes precedence over Silvia, Joe's often neglected girlfriend. But when villains from the Movieworld snatch Silvia from a cinema and drag her into an alternate dimension, Joe chases after her into the screen. He gets to be Viewtiful Joe, a superhero in training who tries to rescue his beloved, while learning tips on the superhero lifestyle from the aging, portly Captain Blue. Incorporating heavy doses of the underrated Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle The Last Action Hero (1993), Viewtiful Joe dutifully recreates the look of the Capcom game that premiered the year before. It contains loving sideswipes at Japanese-style superheroes like Ultraman, but also a terrifying English dub, with slacker slang and wanna-be streetwise hip hop argot that already sounds self-conscious and dated-compare to Samurai Champloo.
