MirageMan 3D remake

09.26.2009

LMirageMan posterots of us have never heard of MirageMan - it's a Chiliean martial arts/superhero film- but we probaly will in the next few months.

Following some success with underground crowds and in genre film fests these last 2 years, the movie's producers announced at this year's Fantastic Fest in Austin that an English-language remake of the film was on its way, AND in 3D just to make Paul Tassi happy - I got your back 'bro!

The original campy action fun-fest stars Latino martial artist and stuntman Marko Zaror as a power-less buttkicker who puts on a ski mask with weird goggles to keep the streets safe. Better to see it than getting my description - things would definitely get lost in translation. Far from Hollywood, but good fun still.

The new remake called DEFENDER 3D already has a website (well, teaser website) while producers are promising a 3D trailer soon. In the mean time, the original will be on the U.S. DVD market on October 6.

Extra Tidbit: That guy looks prime to be recruited in THE EXPENDABLES' inevitable sequel. Along with Wesley Snipes who could use the comeback.

Just read a review for Zaror's Mandrill, done by the same people as in Mirageman, sounds a lot better. Better script, better filming techniques. And Zaror aparently does a fine job acting too! They're calling it sexier and more brutal than bond...

Andy Cheng is directing, he's worked with Jackie Chan and was action director in the Rundown, where Zaror made The Rock look like he could do some amazing moves. Zaror is spectacular, he deserves that film to be remade. It was a cool concept, pero hombre, la historia era una telenovela barata y mal filmada.

Si, la idea de la pelicula era buena, pero la historia y el guion fueron terribles. Marko Zaror no es actor y por eso su personaje casi no hablaba.

Si hacen esta pelicula denuevo, algunas cosas mejoran, la accion, la calidad de como es filmada, pero otras cosas se iran, y lo que va quedar es una pelicula de accion sin mucho sentido.

Own this movie...

As a proud Chilean, I gotta say this film still doesn't deliver much. However, the little it does deliver will be lost in a remake, the nice look into chilean humor and sensibilities as they relate to a more Western concept.
