Post by: Akai Shuichi on December 10, 2013, 10:04:28 am
Here is a pretty (at least I think) insightful review of the movie.

So pretty much the formulaic bullshit we've been getting from Lupin III TV specials and basically the same as the Lupin/Conan TV special.

17 years without a theatrical Lupin feature and this is what we get.

Please, somebody take Lupin III away from TMS. Immediately.

If what he says is true, my hopes and dreams will be shattered... and I will proceed to go into a corner and beat myself with a rod out of self pity.
Seriously!? Does Japan/TMS need help understanding what 'vs' means!? And why does the plot branch from the tv special? It wasn't very good.  :'(

I'm surprised of how many people think the movie sucks (before they've even watched it) simply because Lupin and Conan aren't really fighting each other.

Even though I admit I'm a bit disapointed after reading this review (primarly because the case isn't very compelling), I still think calling it a bad movie is a bit of an exageration.

Japanes producers have long forgotten the meaning of the word versus (since the end of the Heisei Godzilla) and use primarly as a marketing bonus. Versus has more appeal than "and" or "with".

Second, I think TMS and the japanese public (the only public who's really concerned, mind you) are not prepared to make Lupin the sole antagonist. That's what I call Cagliostro syndrome.

But that doesn't mean the movie isn't interesting. What really bothers me is that the mystery might not be interesting enough. That would make for a pretty weak flick.

So, again, I reserve judgement until I watch the movie. And you know, just to see those different
characters interact is good enough for me.

That's all I have to say about that for now.

Lupin III shouldn't have to share the spotlight with another franchise in his first theatrical movie in almost two decades.

And you guys thought Dead or Alive was a bad movie  -.-

I really liked that movie.

Crunchyroll just threw in its two cents, too (http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-feature/2013/12/15/feature-lupin-the-third-vs-detective-conan-the-movie-review).

I wasn't trying to point anyone in particular. It's only that many fans seem to dislike it.

In fact, Dead or Alive it is my favorite Lupin movie  ;)

I guess this was another "Lupin & Conan" story then.
That's disappointing, but good to know that in advance.
I'll keep that in mind when I get to watch the movie, cuz I might still enjoy other parts of the movie.
