YesAsia Editorial Description

All is revealed in the highly anticipated final chapter of the blockbuster trilogy 20th Century Boys! A positively epic exercise in filmmaking and storytelling, the 20th Century Boys trilogy has proven to be one of the most ambitious and most successful undertakings in Japanese Cinema. Director Tsutsumi Yukihiko's bravado efforts to release three films in one year based on Urasawa Naoki's acclaimed manga has brought to life a stunning doomsday thriller that spans multiple generations and genres, and bites into conspiracy theory, pop culture nostalgia, and spectacular special effects. The all-star cast return for the final showdown between the resistance fighters and the fanatical cult leader out to end the world.

The year is 2017, and Friend's spell over Japan is stronger than ever. With Tokyo under quarantine because of the spread of a deadly virus, Friend announces that on August 12 all will be destroyed except for those who believe in Friend. Ocho (Toyokawa Etushi), Yoshitsune (Kagawa Teruyuki), Yukiji (Tokiwa Takako), Kanna (Taira Airi), and other resistance fighters are still battling the government from underground, but Kanna has split from the group to pursue more radical means. As the clock ticks down and the sun sets over a divided Tokyo, Kenji (Karasawa Toshiaki) appears again...

Professional Review of "Twentieth Century Boys Chapter 3 (DVD) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)"

March 25, 2010

Answers and revelations finally arrive in the form of 20th Century Boys - The Last Chapter: Our Flag as director Tsutsumi Yukihiko returns with the final instalment of his hugely ambitious adaptation of Urasawa Naoki's huge, sprawling manga. It's hard to overstate the achievements of the trilogy, having jumped back and forth between decades and juggled a massive cast of diverse characters, while delivering a gripping doomsday scenario plot. The effort has certainly been worth it, with the films having enjoyed critical and commercial success at home and abroad, staying faithful to the highly complex source material while at the same time managing to offer something coherent and accessible to newcomers.

The film opens in 2017, with Japan under the control of Friend, and Tokyo in quarantine, sealed off from the rest of the country by a huge wall following the virus attack. Inside the walls, the city has come to resemble the Tokyo of decades ago, as surviving rebels Ocho (Toyokawa Etushi), Yoshitsune (Kagawa Teruyuki) and Yukiji (Tokiwa Takako) come together to try and prevent Friend's final dreadful prophecy from coming true - that all mankind aside from his followers will be destroyed by an alien invasion on August 12th. With the date fast approaching, Kanna (Taira Airi) has split from the group and taken up arms, planning to stop the mysterious man who may be her father through force. Meanwhile, Kenji (Karasawa Toshiaki), presumed dead since the giant robot attack at the climax of the first chapter, reappears on the island of Hokkaido, and heads for Tokyo with his guitar.

Finishing a story as epic and complicated as 20th Century Boys in a satisfactory manner was always going to be an incredibly difficult task, though Tsutsumi Yukihiko and screenwriter Yasushi Fukuda manage to tie up most of the series?many loose threads whilst still leaving enough questions for aficionados to puzzle over. To be honest, probably the best idea for fans of the series would be to revisit the first two chapters beforehand, as the film pays few concessions to those with patchy memories, diving straight back into the story and its multiple timelines and mass of characters. As with the other films, this approach works very well, and the film's wilful complexity and refusal to spoon feed its audience answers gives it a more challenging and stimulating feel than that of most other epics.

It's obviously difficult to go into details without giving much away, though it is safe to say that the film does answer many of the questions raised in the incredibly dense second chapter, and that the identify of Friend is a key point in the plot. This having been said, the film does not wholly explain its catalogue of mysteries, and there remains a certain amount of ambiguity, making the trilogy well worth revisiting in search of clarity. Things do not play out quite as expected, with the film's climax showing the same kind of eccentricity and rock and roll spirit that has characterised the whole series ?viewers should note that they should not under any circumstances turn off the film once the credits start to roll, as it actually continues for a further twenty minutes and into its conclusion proper.

As the final chapter of an apocalyptic story, the film unsurprisingly does have more in the way of special effects than its predecessors, with new giant robots, flying machine and a weirdly recreated Tokyo of the future. However, it remains very much a character driven affair, with its explosive set pieces generally taking a backseat to its more human aspects. The film does feature quite extensive use of CGI, particularly in its many sweeping shots of the city and its omnipresent zeppelin balloons, though the special effects are generally of a good standard, and are woven into the film in pleasingly subtle rather than show stopping fashion. This goes some way to helping the film remain grounded and convincing despite its many leaps backwards and forwards through time. There is a good amount of action and fun sprinkled throughout, enough to keep the film exciting and engaging despite its long running time of over two and a half hours.

Needless to say, 20th Century Boys - The Last Chapter: Our Flag is an absolute must see for all fans, and one which does not disappoint, shouldering the huge responsibility of resolving the series in entertaining and compelling fashion. Indeed, the only real problem is that with the journey now over, a certain sense of sadness and nostalgia is inevitable, though fitting, with memories and the past having played such a vital thematic role.
