As a fan of the anime series, I say that this isn't so bad. I felt that it quite doesn't have the suspense whenever there's kidnapping cases. It is shallow and predictable. It isn't as mysterious as it should be. It isn't as exciting to watch [as it is in the anime]. But I liked how wrong I was when I thought of how Shinichi would deal with the last problem. It kind of surprised me. While I was watching this, I thought that Oguri Shun was charming. His acting was good though he doesn't have the perkiness the Shinichi of the anime has. Aside from him, the other one I consider to be memorable was the actor of Mouri Kogoro who I thought portrayed him well. His facial expressions and voice were amusing. And he resembles him, too! There are some of the music of the anime used and it's nice to hear them here. It gives the feels. I don't think I'll re-watch this soon, though. If I want to see Shinichi, I'd rather watch the anime or catch up and read the manga. Anyway, it's passable to watch whenever you don't have anything to watch. It's also nice to watch if you're an avid fan of the anime/manga series because you'll get to see the characters alive and because you're an avid fan; you never miss out anything related to your loved series! However, this may bore some. Don't watch this if you're looking for a mysterious one that will make you think hard.
