Lupin III: Mine Fujiko's Lie film review(spoilers)
« on: August 18, 2019, 10:11:49 am »
I finally watched this year's Lupin III film, Mine Fujiko's Lie yesterday(with subtitles in another language), and I liked it.
This is obviously a Fujiko-centric special, and I liked seeing Fujiko's story in it. BTW, no Goemon and Zenigata in this story.
Some may find the kid annoying, but he is not the typical kid shown in previous specials.
Oh, and Fujiko gets to show off more action with a lot of fan service for the first time in awhile.

Anyways, although it's not really part of this film's main plot,
I really liked the twist that the previous 2 films(Jigen's Tombstone, Goemon's Blood Spray) were actually somewhat connected to the current story.
Hawk, the nearly unstoppable villain from Goemon's Blood Spray made a surprise brief cameo, and so did Yael Okuzaki, the main villain from Jigen's Gravetone, who made a surprise return. So it turns out someone is behind all those crazy assassins who attacked Lupin's gang so far.
I am guessing that the next one will be Lupin-centric will the be final film in the series, with the gang most likely fighting against the mystery person who owns the "assassin factory". I am sure all 5 main characters will appear in the next one.
Maybe, it's Mamo, who made a small cameo in Jigen's Gravestone?

Sounds a little similar to Part V. Hope Koike got to show off more, though.

I didn't see similarities to part 5 in this film, but maybe you can tell what they are.
And I liked what Koike did in this film, although I don't know how much you're expecting from him for this film.

The assassins teaming up angle is similar. But maybe he did something interesting, so I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt on that one.
