Instead of fucking about with pseudoscience, mystical religions, narrow escapes and heroic sacrifices, Wild Zero just shouts "ROCK AND ROLL" at the top of its lungs and destroys all the bad guys with situationally existent magic loosely related to a musical instrument. And to be honest, the Rebel Alliance would've been way more awesome if it had been led by a Japanese man named Guitar Wolf.
The Zombie Apocalypse (With a Giant Mega-Zombie Cluster)
The Familiar Cliche:
Zombies take over the world, and our heroes must learn to survive amid the chaotic remains of society in any way they can.
The Foreign Version:
The Japanese movie Helldriver from 2011 introduces us to a world where an alien starfish has filled Japan with exploding zombies, causing the government to build a huge wall sectioning them off from the uninfected. They then recruit a fierce warrior named Kika to assassinate her mother, the zombie queen (who is being controlled by the starfish, of course). They outfit Kika with a chainsword and some cybernetic attachments (complete with inexplicable tubing) and toss her over the wall to cleave through the flesh-eating masses.
"I'd kill for a purple rock-and-roll-powered light saber right now."
After defeating a zombie made of swords (with a truck also made of swords) ...
... and a multi-limbed zombie armed with half a dozen guns and disturbing nudity ...
... Kika finds her mother, who has fashioned herself a skyscraper-sized battlemech of writhing undead corpses. The Japanese government, under the command of Japanese Hitler, launches orbital missiles at it, but the zombie-mech grabs them and uses them to fly into the upper atmosphere, rearranging its feet-bodies into a more aerodynamic tailfin shape.
"Hey, make sure we address the aerodynamics issue. We don't want people questioning the realism of this."
Kika leaps onto the meat robot as it takes off and manages to climb all the way to the top as it screams toward space. She then beats her mother to death and rips her heart out while screaming "Give my pudding back!" for some unfathomable reason, at which point everything in the movie explodes.
