LoveHKfilm, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/panasia/yatterman.html
«Takashi Miike's Yatterman is ridiculous, juvenile and sometimes tiresome, but it's all in the service of sending up a particularly beloved genre of anime. Good, guilty fun if you're in the right frame of mind.»
Variety, by RONNIE SCHEIB source: http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117939701.html?categoryid=31&cs=1
«despite the stunningly idiotic gags, the dingbat musical numbers and dazzling color schemes, the pic's repetitive episodic structure ultimately trumps Miike's parody of it, and becomes wearisome after a while.»
eFilmCritic, by Jay Seaver - 5/5 source: http://efilmcritic.com/review.php?movie=19336&reviewer=371
«It's pure candy-coated insanity, but so earnest and charming in it that it's tough to resist.»
Twitch, by Lauren Baggett source: http://twitchfilm.net/reviews/2009/07/fantasia-09-review-yatterman.php
«It's a love letter to anyone who ever eagerly looked forward to watching cartoons “every Saturday at 6:30 pm”. And it's all told with a wink, a smile, and a cheesy victory pose.»
Anime News Network, by Justin Sevakis source: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/review/yatterman
«Yatterman is an explosion of color, noise and exhuberance. It's also shrill, disjointed, poorly paced and in places utterly without charm.»
Nippon Cinema, by Kevin Ouellett source: http://www.nipponcinema.com/db/review/yatterman/
«however, that’s a fairly minor criticism of what is otherwise a ridiculously entertaining film. And while it probably won’t appeal to the fans who have Miike pigeon-holed as an “extreme cinema” director, it should appeal to just about anyone looking for a goofy, fun way to spend two hours.»
