I enjoyed this movie, and honestly I am not a fan of the Lupin series. Well, I have seen a few episodes of the Lupin anime, but I have never read the manga or knew the characters. However I am a Shun Oguri fan, and he did not disappoint! This movie is action packed with great effects and fantastical fight scenes. All the characters were believable and acted really well. Its just that the plot is ridiculous especially for a 2 hour movie! While I am aware that this is based on a long running anime that I haven’t seen, I really felt as if the writers attempted to cram a season of the anime story line into one movie. I gave this a 8 mainly because the cast was spectacular, Shun WAS Lupin (idk how he magically looked tall and lanky), and the action was top notch. I marked it down because the plot was ridiculous, it wasn’t funny (I remembered Lupin being funny) and they didn’t play the Lupin the Third theme music (I was totally waiting for it!)
