Nikola Tesla,the greatest Serbian inventor,engineer,physicist (lived in America) is the biggest character, because a lot of his inventions are mentioned in the film. A pigeons had special place in Tesla's hearth. He kept them at his hotel in New York, and he had a particular affinity for one white female. See more »

K20 - old characters in a new movie
Fairly well done light entertainment movie with good computer graphics and retro set-up. Some reviewer says Japanese stole Batman, but I would like to present some facts here. K20 character was created in 1930 by Edogawa Rampo, a Japanese pioneer mystery novelist. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edogawa_Rampo This movie is based on a recent novel adaptation by a different author. If you think cape and mask means everything MARVEL, think again and do some basic research before saying anything about "originality".
Some other characters like Akechi, and boy-sidekick Kobayashi are also came from Rampo's novels.
Retro set up seems like homage to the original author who wrote juvenile fun novels about K20 vs Akechi before WW2, and I appreciate the director's sensitivity.
