Energy-conservative high school student Houtarou Oreki ends up with more than he bargained for when he signs up for the Classics Club at his sister's behest—especially when he realizes how deep-rooted the club's history really is. Begrudgingly, Oreki is dragged into an investigation concerning the 45-year-old mystery that surrounds the club room. Accompanied by his fellow club members, the knowledgeable Satoshi Fukube, the stern but benign Mayaka Ibara, and the ever-curious Eru Chitanda, Oreki must combat deadlines and lack of information with resourcefulness and hidden talent, in order to not only find the truth buried beneath the dust of works created years before them, but of other small side cases as well.

If you're Kento's fan, or even if you just like japanese movies, you'll know that his speciality is high schoolers. He plays a high school boy (again) this time though not in a romantic shoujo comedy. Rather, it's about four students who are trying to solve a mystery of the past. The mystery itself isn't that interesting, though the story is kind of entertaining, with the flashbacks and the small other cases that are solved. Other than that, the movie hasn't anything else to offer. Basicly, there is no romance, no friendship dynamics, no slice of life high school nostalgia, no deep character development. So, why watch it? For the small mysteries the students are solving, and maybe if you're a Kento fan.

This is basically an anime series of 22 episodes of 23 minutes turned into a live action movie less than 2 hours, so it feels like lot's of short stories and mysteries compressed which led to omitting the slice of life and the interactions between the main characters. Anyway, for those who have not watched the anime series might be hard to relate to the characters since in this movie we barely get any information about their background but still you are going to enjoy the mystery which upgrades by time passing and make even you thinking about a hypothesis. However for those who have watched the anime series you will find the characters more interesting but less than the anime since there are barely any slice of life, school, comedy scenes which were the missing link in the anime between school genre and mystery in contrast to the movie which feels more mature. All in all it's a good watch worth the 2 hours if you can tolerate the slow pace in the begining but nothing remarkable or unforgetable.
