It’s okay… but it’s great at that.
Lower your expectations! This is a kid’s movie. But it is a very good one, and quite worth the watch if you come in expecting to have a nice time and not over think what’s going on on screen.
I feel like the movie itself eases you into such a mentality by itself and very early on.. so I was fine with every cliche and “expected” twist. I’d go as far as to say this isn’t as “grand” as Tintin’s movie Adventure. It’s much smaller in scale and plot.. but as a fan of the character, this movie delivered in a fun adventure.
What I love most about this movie is (the look, of course) the small movements, details and interactions. The new female character is lovely and everything is expressed properly. You can tell that the people that animated this put a lot of time and effort into it. The same with whoever was in charge of dialogue (Japanese).
All in all, I recommend it for the piece of art that it is, and the cool animations.
Havily inspired by Indiana Jones but can’t match its model
I must confess I was not really familiar with Lupin III before I watched this. I had this vague notion that he was a goofy burglar but that’s it.
The film starts strong enough. There is an early escape scene on a highway that is very entertaining. The animation is good and expressive. But as the movie progressed, I realized how much of it was modeled after Indiana Jones. Some of the main characters are archeologists looking for a powerful ancient artifact and, of course, there is a nazi plot to get to it first and restore the Third Reich. That’s a problem because comparing Lupin to Indiana doesn’t do the former any favor. Neither of them have entirely believable stories of course, but at least there is some plot building in Indiana Jones that doesn’t constantly give the impression that the writers came up with all their ideas as they wrote the script, seemingly out of thin air and with little link to what was already committed to paper.
It probably didn’t help that I watched the movie dubbed in French, as the voice actors for that version did a poor job, putting more distance between me as a viewer and the characters than the shoddy plot already did.
Overall, there’s just enough in Lupin III that I wasn’t completely bored, but aside from the above mentioned escape, no scene left a lasting impression.
