Editor's Note
A burned-out rocker discovers his doom-struck adolescent fantasies are coming true in this futuristic thriller from Japan. Ever since his career as a musician crashed and burned, Kenji (Toshiaki Karasawa) has been making a living working at a quick-stop store and living with his family. One day, police officers stop by and ask Kenji about a family of regular customers who've gone missing, though Kenji has hardly noticed their absence. When Kenji visits the home of the missing family, he notices a strange piece of graffiti on the wall, and is startled when he remembers it was the symbol of a club of teenage misfits he belonged to years ago. Kenji and his friends in the club created an amateur comic book that imagined an apocalyptic future in which strange illnesses and bands of armed insurgents threatened to destroy the world. As a wave of unexplained murders sweeps through the city, overseas the events of Kenji's old comic are beginning to come true--a fanatical cult known as Friend found the book and, under the leadership of Sadakiyo, they've made it their business to turn it into a reality. Now Kenji and his old friends have to infiltrate the cult and stop them before it's too late. 20-SEIKI SHONEN (aka 20TH CENTURY BOYS) was adapted from a bestselling manga by Naoki Urasawa and became a major box-office hit in Japan.

By: Todd Douglass Reviews
Published on: 12/14/2009 1:07 PM
In case you haven’t heard about it, you should know that 20th Century Boys is kind of a big deal. The manga by Naoki Urasawa has been wildly popular in Japan and has made its way to the States, but the big news comes from the release of the live action version. Planned as a trilogy of films, 20th Century Boys was one of the highest budgeted, most popular Japanese movies in quite some time. The first installment, Beginning of the End, is coming out next week and the question remains whether or not the series will strike it big with an American the full review
