Its 1949 and World War II never happened. Nikola Tesla has just won a Nobel Prize rather than dying in obscurity and the Japanese Empire is an undying aristocracy where the rich sip tea out of bone china, while the poor die in the gutters. K-20, the Fiend with Twenty Faces, steals from the rich and gives to himself. But now, on the eve of the marriage between society princess, Yoko Hashiba, and chief of police, Kogoro Akechi, the fiend frames simple circus acrobat Hekichi Endo (Takeshi Kaneshiro) for his crimes. Under arrest and sentenced to death, Endo must escape his captors and clear his good name before The Fiend With Twenty Faces can unleash his evil plan to destroy the entire nation!

Its quite a long movie,running at aprox 2 hours and 20 minutes and in Japanese with English Subtitles. Martial Arts fans could be disappionted as there's really no martial arts action in the movie. With a really good story,plenty of 'Free Ruinning',acrobatics and fab special effects K20 is a very enjoyable movie. The Blu-ray is stunning with crisp & colurful visuals,cystal clear HD sound and a fab in depth making of feature.Reccommended viewing,especially if you are a fan of action adventure movies and of course the gorgeous Takeshi Kaneshiro!
Set against him are Toru Nakamura's aristocratic detective, Takaku Matsu's `modest girl from a nice family' (given a bit more moxey than the usual romantic lead in this kind of film) and Takeshi Kaneshiro as the none-too-bright circus performer set up to take the wrap for K20 so he can retire, only for his escape to force the master criminal to change his plans and the acrobat to learn K20's tricks so he can fight fire with fire to clear his name. This being a period piece the stakes are a hidden device created by Nikola Tesla that could be a source of great energy or a terrible destructive weapon, and its location can only be discovered by stealing a reproduction painting and breaking into a heavily guarded military installation to x-ray it which, along with a couple of enjoyable training sequences, provides the big setpieces.Read more ›
In this movie World War 2 never took place to the A-bomb was never dropped on Japan. There are two class the rich and the poor there is not real in-between. There is no "official" movement between classes. The only sign of rebellion is K-20 the Fiend of 20 faces. He is a master thief, a master acrobat and a master of disguise/illusionist. He can be anybody; he steals from the rich and gives to himself. A young circus performer Heikichi Endo, played by Takeshi Kaneshiro, is hired by a newspaper to take pictures of an upcoming wedding of the Princess and the local hero super cop. Getting caught Endo seems to have all the attributes of K-20 so he is pronounced as K-20 and arrested to close the case. Escaping with the help of a thief ring, he must learn all the secrets K-20 know so he can fight him as an equal if he has a chance of clearing his name, and stop K-20 from his end game.
Well worth watching. My wife, who always make fun of me for watching martial arts and Eastern movies, was impressed with Takeshi Kaneshiro's acting and managed to sit through it without complaining. This is a good fun and great entertainment.
I loved this film. Based on either novels or manga (I'm not sure which) which have been popular for some time in Japan, it's directed with a feminine sensibility by Ms Shimako Sato who also wrote the screenplay. What this means in that there's a lightness of touch, a hero who is compassionate (he helps feed locals orphans living rough) fallible good-humoured and masculine without being macho, there's an element of humour and understated romance. There is also plenty of action. When Endo is broken out of prison by local thieves, he is given a book on how to become a master thief. The various elements play to both his intelligence and skills and involve a lot of parkour (the French sport of leaping around buildings) and provides everything he needs to challenge K-20.
The other main players, apart from the masked K-20 and Endo, are Baron Kogoro Takechi the senior police officer in charge of the K-20 and his fiancee Duchess Yoko Hashiba who seems to have reservations about her impending marriage. When Endo rescues Yoko from the clutches of K-20, he takes her to his world, a place of deprivation that Yoko never knew existed and which immediately sparks her social conscience.Read more ›
