I may be understating this, solid , solid fact. Great story, good to great scenes, good to great writing overall solid movie. The character portrayals are were so good when it was over you wanted to watched the next episode to see what hijinks Lupin was getting into next. At a little over two hours it is a ton of movie with the Lupin the Third feel and if your like me, you wanted to see them steal shit before the whole main plot point start and you want to see what they did with the tension between Fujiko and Lupin, and the cunning was at ten.
Now Don't worry like I said in the title will not give away the story while explaining why I loved it so much. The movie starts out mid suspense, mid thievery, as you get a glimpse the feature characters in the anime. It should have come to no surprise that there is conflict brewing and the gang have to react. The action is amazing and as the stylish thieves punch there way through there issues in hopes to bandage there mental wounds. (Have I given too much away?)
Some of the dialogue or writing was fitting, understandably though, some not custom to films outside of the huge American market, might find it a bit cheesy, but I love it and I challenge you, go the entire day without saying something cheesy, I dare you, challenge accepted? With that said some of the writing at no fault of the actors was a little meh, Maybe for English dubbed, suitable translation, yada, yada, I get it, okay, I still loved the movie.
So basically look, Badass movie, Goemon is fantastic, Lupin is dressed well, and Fugiko, well Fugiko is so amazing both to look at and in her role. I don't think you will be disappointed giving this one a shot, if it is not in your collection already and this is just pander to your panda. ....? Okay I am done go watch the fucking movle!!!!
