This show has the most yan-tao actor and prettiest actress to me, so how can i possibly miss it?
The story takes place in a hypothetical time where the 2nd world war did not take place. The world is still stuck with distinct classes, similar to India’s caste system.
In this world where the gap is huge between the have’s and the have not’s, there is this dark caped masked guy who specialise in stealing from the rich and giving to the poor (although we didn’t get to see the latter part). So one day, at the demostration of a new power transmitting device, this K20 showed up and stole it right in front of everyone.
Heikichi (Takeshi Kaneshiro) is a acrobat at a local circus who was offered a ad-hoc photographer job at the engagement ceremony of famous police inspector Akechi and princess Yoko (Matsu Takako). This began an adventure which he realised that he was being set up, the circus was burnt down and he being mistaken as K20.
1) Storyline – 24 / 30
Set in a very different time and place, I feel this is very fresh from the usual popcorn movies all so common nowadays.
2) Entertainment value – 22 / 25
Very entertaining with its fair share of suspense, action and comedy. 金城武 did very well i think, especially when he didn’t mind having his face all bruised and swollen.
3) Cast – 24 / 25
My favourite actor and actress. Period.
4) Pace / Flow – 16 / 20
At 130min, the show did not feel that long. Very evenly spaced out with all the highs and lows.
A very biased review. Highly recommended way to spend a weekend night away.
