... so strange and entertaining and densely woven that I find myself hooked on the very elements so beyond logic they defy rational explanation
20th Century Boys: Chapter 2 - The Last Hope is the follow up to Yukihiko Tsutsumi's 20th Century Boys: Beginning of the End.
While some sequels are able to stand alone from their predecessors, this sequel does not. Jumping into this film without having seen the first is a bad idea; therefore, watching the previous installment comes highly recommended.
This chapter needs some settling into, since the beginning wastes very little time at getting into the year 2015 and building up the Kanna character. Eventually, the story begins to take shape and things get more and more interesting as this 135 minute picture rolls along to the final minute, which is a swell setup for the next film.
The effects are pretty solid and there are a bunch of new characters to mix in with the old, which allows for a lot to happen in the story.
Airi Taira steps in as Kanna, the lead, and she gives a good performance. Eiko Koike has an entertaining character herself, while the old cast members reprise their roles successfully.
In closing, 20th Century Boys: Chapter 2 - The Last Hope has the story, characters, and acting to make it a worthy sequel. Fans of the first should enjoy this one.
