Movie Info

This third installment of the blockbuster Japanese sci-fi series 20th Century Boys 3 unfurls in 2017 A.D. - popularly (and ominously) known as 'Friend Era Year 3' - when a menacing character called World President Friend rules all of humanity. After a lethal virus ravages and wipes out much of Tokyo, city officials administer the construction of a wall around the city and place severe restrictions on the lives of residents. Friend promptly informs everyone that on August 20th, 2017, evil extraterrestrials will wipe out mankind and only those individuals who believe in Friend will be saved. Yet at the same time, a subversive movement to stop Friend forms.

Yes, there are giant robots creating mayhem. Not enough of them, alas. The steam seems to have run out of the franchise during this third part, and it's simply an OK capper.

½

Quite a disappointing finale indeed. A 156 minutes feature in which almost an hour spent on re-filling plotholes or recapping what happened in the last 2 chapters, whilst it's all dragging for the remaining time. (Perhaps it was the original manga's concept), I don't mind the idea of big love or returning good for evil as the answer; but it is really a bit inadequate for a 3-chapters features which begins so loud but ends like this.

It wasnt as good as the first chapter, but that tends to happen. I unfortunately missed the 2nd chapter. But it was ok, because they did a recap at the beginning. It kind of drug on a little, and the final scenes were just a little cheesy. But I still enjoyed watching it. Im looking forward to seeing the 2nd chapter, to tie it all together.
