... a mix of Japanese manga, forties adventure pulp and silent movie serial surrealism, set in an alternate reality where World War II was averted...
That poster is a lie.
The kind of movie hollywood has no idea how to properly make anymore. It doesn't try to be something it shouldn't be, it's always fun, always smart enough but gladly doesn't try to push too much anything that could interrupt the fun. There's action, adventure, good stunts, a wise use of CGI, a good cast, comedy, and gladly no pointless romance. If only cinemas had these kind of movies every weekend it would be a joy to go and watch them. It's pop corn cinema done right.
K-20 is a lighthearted adventure movie starring Asian superstar Takeshi Kaneshiro. The plot was ridiculous, the action was OK and the performances were a little flat. I'm sure kids would like it but for me I found too dull, with not enough action or humour.
K-20: Legend of the Mask is a Japanese superhero-esque movie done right. Congratulations Shimako Sato.
Set in an alternate 1949, the film captures the setting quite nicely, with moderate use of CG throughout the entire picture. By the way, the CG is also great. The plot isn't all that complex, yet it is engrossing enough to make the 2 hours and 15 minutes not seem that bad. The first 45 minutes is all story and character buildup, and once that passes, the next hour and a half is quite the fun adventure.
The action is limited, and most of it is all acrobatics and stunt work. That doesn't mean that it sucks because it is entertaining. However, this is not a super hero action extravaganza. K-20: Legend of the Mask is about the story and characters.
Takeshi Kaneshiro fans will love him in this film. It is difficult to question why he is one of the bigger names in Asia right now. Toru Nakamura, Takako Matsu, Kanata Hongo, and Jun Kunimura round out the rest of the cast.
K-20: Legend of the Mask is an entertaining watch for fans of Takeshi Kaneshiro and Japanese adventure cinema.
