The Blue Sky is the first Asian digit-3D student film featuring individual tragedy between the Chinese pilot Zhengliang, Xu and the young Japanese pilot Ryuta, Watanabe in The Second Sino-Japanese War, 'brutality of war' as its theme.
Morton H. Halperin was a former member of NSA, State Department and Pentagon under several U.S. regimes since 1960s. And his lecture about the Okinawa reversion was shot at the House of Councillors on September 19, 2014 in Japan.
It is a sequel to the first one and this is not a sequel that stands alone, you need to watch part one in order to understand the characters. It is quite a good sequel following up. The pace is fast and intense. With the third movie as a conclusion, the characters race against time to stop Friend's plot to destroy mankind and unravel his identity. I can't say which one I like best as both of the movies have their own plot. I enjoyed both of them and cannot wait for part 3.
The story: It starts off where part one ends. Kanna is a grown-up teenager in 2015. Friend is still planning on destroying mankind and has made almost everyone respect him as god. Kanna races to fight off Friend' evil plot and finds dark secrets. I can't spoil much as there are quite a lot of twists. With an expensive budget, you can see some huge realistic sets never feature in Japanese movies. Part one has the expensive sets. Part two, the sets are not as big as part one, is more about the drama and dark secrets. So those expecting bigger sets may be disappointed
Overall: It is still good. Those who watch part one and enjoy it, you are suggested to watch this too. Those who want to know about friend's identity, you will have to wait for part three. It has thrill, suspense and maybe drama. But there is no action, and there is no action. This is only for thrills and suspense.
