The Fun Continues!
12 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second film in the 20th Century Boys series is just as exciting, gripping and delightfully entertaining as the first film. I had a ball watching the story unfold as the old prophecies, written by Kenji as a child, are replaced with a book of NEW prophecies written by the mysterious Friend as a child. Who is Friend? Why is he so obsessed with Kenji, his club of friends and the book of prophecies? I really do love these films and I can't wait for the third film, coming toward the end of 2009. The production values are fantastic, the acting solid, the direction tight and the story itself is complicated enough to intrigued adults yet easy enough for kids to follow. While I certainly wouldn't call the 20th Century Boys films "kiddie flicks," they are based on Manga and safe for the entire family.

20th Century Boys 2 was really exciting, I enjoyed every single minute of it just as much as the first film despite the lack of giant robots. Hey, I can always hope for more giant rampaging robots in part three, right? Seriously though, I cannot recommend these films enough. The copy I watched looked to be ripped straight from the original film source so there were reel breaks and all sorts of things but it was still a privilege. If you were able to attend the Philly Film Festival and check this out, I'm sure you're just as excited about this film series as I am. When these films hit stateside, check 'em out!
