Plot

Based on the popular Japanese comic of the same name about an average girl's high flying romance and friendship with F4 or four handsome heirs. High school sweethearts Tsukasa and Tsukusi are finally getting married. Tsukasa gives his fiancee a precious family heirloom ― but only to see a robber disappear with it. Tsukasa and three other F4 friends reunite for the globetrotting search.

Notes

  1. Based on Yoko Kamio's Japanese shojo manga series "Hana yori Dango".
  2. The original Japanese title "Hana Yori Dango" or ""Boys Over Flowers" is a pun on the Japanese old saying "Dumplings over flowers," referring to people who attend Hanami (flower festival), but instead of enjoying flowers, focus more on the materialistic side of the event such as getting food and buying souvenirs.

flavour of life fans all over the world were waiting for this couple to play more romantic scene in this movie.. but that does not happen!!! it just run like the way in the series. i love tsukasa, but some time in the movie he acted more awful than a jerk. poor makino.. tsukasa in this movie should be played as a more romantic person bcoz the couple have gone through so many obstacles to be togerther..

anyway the Japanese version of hana yori dango is the best!

Ki “Boys Over Flowers: Final” is the continuation of the ever so popular Japanese manga “Boys Over Flowers” that has been made into numerous television dramas and movie formats over the years. The original story has even spawned remakes in Taiwan and South Korea. The basic premise of the original “Boys Over Flowers” story centers around an average teenage girl as she enters an ultra prestigious prep school for the rich. The prep school is dominated by a group of four students known as the F4. To the F4’s surprise, when they start to bully the seemingly out of place young girl, the girl stands up to them and then some. This is when romance starts to bloom between the girl and two members from the F4.

For this version, Japanese television network “TBS” continues the storyline from their popular “Boys Over Flowers” drama series that aired in Japan between 2005-2007. All principle cast members from that series appears in this big screen version. The movie itself takes place approximately four years after the television series. F4 leader Tsukasa Domyoji announces on live TV his intentions to marry middle class girl Tsukushi Makino. Meanwhile, Tsukushi Makino is browsing the aisles of Japanese department store, when she comes across Tsukasa Domyoji’s press conference on a television set. She becomes horrified when Domyoji introduces Makino using a picture of her whoofing down Ramen. And thus Tsukasa Domyoji & Tsukushi Makino’s official engagement begins.

The couple then go through the formal engagement process between the couple’s parents at Tsukasa Domyoji’s estate. This is when Tsukushi Makino is presented with a priceless Domyoji heirloom: a diamond studded tiara. Later that evening, when the couple are relaxing in Makino’s hotel room, a masked assailant comes crashing through their her window and steals the tiara. Now the couple go on a world wide quest to recover the priceless tiara.

For fans of the Boys Over Flowers series, the big screen version is likely to offer the bare minimum to keep their fans happy. Performance by Mao Inoue is very good, while Jun Matsumoto’s oddly charismatic performance (think genetic offspring of Michael Jackson) provides just enough balance to counter the pure innocence of Mao Inoue’s character. The other members of the fabled F4 (Shun Oguri, Shota Matsuda, Tsuyoshi Abe) all have much smaller roles and are largely relegated to modeling their nifty outfits ala mannequins.

The Achilles heel of “Boys Over Flowers: Final” is a bloated script that’s short on originality. The idea of Tsukushi Makino and the F4 traversing the globe sounds good initially, but loses its luster as the story feels unnecessarily long and hackneyed. The movie’s first destination, Las Vegas, offers the most fun and this is when the movie hits its high point. There’s a handful of amusing moments during this segment - Makino playing roulette or the couple eating at a truck stop diner - and a sense of awe even arises when the F4 makes their first appearance at a Las Vegas hotel entrance. But unfortunately, the movie then loses steam with dry moments in Hong Kong and comes to a screeching halt with dull moments between Tsukasa Domyoji & Tsukushi Makino on a remote island. The story then wraps up with a nice twist and final moments that are well done.

For first time viewers, “Boys Over Flowers: Final” makes for a less than ideal introduction into the Boys Over Flowers world. Although the characters of Tsukasa Domyoji and Tsukushi Makino are done well, the script is noticeably flat (especially in the movie’s overly long second half) and the other members of the F4 seem relegated to mannequin status.

naoko Yeah, i watched the movie. They not only doubt rui but the rest of f4. theres a twist to the whole story line. F4 are actually are part of the whole scheme! But that doesnt mean they're necessarily bad...

yana im an avid fan of shun oguri....he really rocks my world!!!!!!!!!!

Hime B Ok, i haven't seen it yet but i have read the manga and i kinda know what Doumyoji is saying to rui, if its the corrosponding bit. but i don't really wanna write it because it will probably ruin it for you...

GoMeNaTo just a question... to those who have watched in.. .why are they doubting rui.... there is a part in the trailer where tsukasa asked rui... "can i really trust you??"... please explain... im going nuts about it...

RamenLover If anybody saw this movie yet, would love to hear their opinions!

sum1fullofluv ugh.. 1 more week!!! no 1 can wait tat long!!!

Camz Soo exciting! I hope they upload it soon on the net xD I really can't wait anymore!

nande0nande yarg, i wanna see it, but i think Doumyouji is really a jerk, i guess i only want to see it because it has Sun Oguri in it KYAA!! (sorry, fangirl mode)
