What if Arnold Arre infused his Martial Law Babies with the same supernatural action of his earlier graphic novels? What if you wanted to watch Watchmen without having read the book first thus perserving the mystery of the villain who wanted to screw up the world through some absurd plot device?

Then you get 20th Century Boys, the live-action version of a popular Japanese manga by Urasawa Naoki. This is epic storytelling, the first of a trilogy of movies that depicts the trials of a bunch of former childhood friends who battle an evil organization they concocted back when they were still in grade school.

If you want to recapture that feeling from a movie that completely surprises you, go see this film.
