Under the cover of darkness, a masked samurai murders six men across the metropolis of Japan: three in Tokyo, one in Osaka, and the last in Kyoto. In their investigation, the police learn that each man was a member of the Genjibotaru—a thieves gang centered on the theft of Buddhist statues and artifacts and who go by the names of Minomoto no Yoshitune's servants.

Without a clear motive or clues to the other members' identities, the case runs dry until a Kyoto temple calls for the famous Kogorou Mouri. Having received an anonymous letter containing a peculiar puzzle, the temple monks ask for his assistance in solving it to recover their long lost statue. Meanwhile, Conan Edogawa and high school detective Heiji Hattori team up in order to solve the cryptic puzzle and find the murderer, as Hattori searches for his childhood love.

With Hattori's knowledge of Kyoto, the two scour the streets and gradually discover the truth, but not before the murderer strikes again—killing another Genjibotaru member and, after repeated attempts on Hattori's life, eventually kidnapping Hattori's childhood sweetheart. It is only by working together to bring buried clues to light can Conan and Hattori hope to end the rogue samurai's bloodshed and save Hattori's love.

The cultural themes in this movie are nice and the collaboration between Conan and Heiji is a nice change from the usual solo investigations by Conan.

However, there are a few things that bothered me about this movie:

1) The plot involves a couple of moments that seem rather over the top or out of place for a Conan movie. This involves combat scenes that seem a bit unrealistic, given that our main characters (including casual martial arts practitioner Ran) are not professional fighters, but regular people. Hence, it feels weird that they are not overwhelmed by some moments in this movie, both in terms of skill read more

I'm a fan of Detective Conan and I have to say honestly Detective Conan is a love story rather than detective novel.But Crossroad in the Ancient Capital tells something more than love.Among all the Detective Conan movies,this piece should be one of the best.
This time the case happened in Kyoto--former capital of Japan before Tokyo,so this movie is full of Japanese culture:Kendo(剣道),Kabugi(歌舞伎).Also there are Japanese history and places of interest of Tokyo.In a word his movie opens a window to Japanese culture.If you are curious about or interested in the country of Japan,you must not miss it!
Besides culture stuffs,the read more

I give this movie a 7/10. It was good and had a good plot.
However, I thought of this movie as more of a 2 hour special episode. Nothing in this movie seems as though it is a movie. For a Detective Conan movie there is a case that has to be solved and then something more drastic happens. For example, Movie 01, Conan solves the mystery of the culprit who planted bombs around their area, then it turns out he plants a bomb in a skyscraper where Ran is located and Conan must now go save her. This movie does not have that, being read more

Despite being very popular characters, Heiji and Kazuha rarely ever get a movie all to themselves. Whenever they are in a movie, they're usually side characters that are only relevant to that movie's story (specifically, movies 3, 10, 13, 14, 17). While fans had to wait for The Crimson Love Letter, the only film that prominently featured Heiji and Kazuha was Crossroad in the Ancient Capital. With the release of the 21st movie, how does this one hold up today?

Besides their lead roles, both movies double-down on their Japanese heritage. While Movie 21 focused on Karuta games, this movie implements elements from the legendary folktales read more
