Word is out that the "Hemingway Papers", the newly discovered last novel by the great author, tells the hiding place of a buried treasure on a desolate Mediterranean island. Lupin sneaks onto the island where, instead of treasure-hunting, he finds himself embroiled in a violent struggle for power. To Lupin's surprise, his old buddies Jigen and Goemon are also in the fight for their own reasons. Marcus the Merchant of Death also lands on the island accompanied by Fujiko, Lupin's greatest weakness, and followed by the police inspector, who is forever on Lupin's tail.

Another wacky zappy Lupin adventure where everything is really serious and deep rooted in really serious stuff, but Lupin and the gang come and mess up everything for everyone!

You know how we get introduced to a past relation to Jigen the person wants to kill him and he's strangely cool about it sometimes? It's one of those. You know how Goemon can randomly show up for any reason, and rarely is it about a job? It's not one of those. Goemon has actually been hired by the side opposing the group that hired Jigen. They handling it in very convincing ways, and they have each ...

Hemingway Papers is a pretty enjoyable early Lupin special.

Lupin and the gang end up on an island where two tyrants are having a conflict, and a sleazy arms dealer is in the middle. That guy wants a treasure, and of course so do Lupin and Fujiko.

Jigen has a pretty interesting role in this, getting hired by one of the tyrants to infiltrate them and get revenge against a crazy mercenary, who he has a problem with from the past. They really play up Jigen's stoic badass nature in this, which is nice.

Goemon hears that a chest can't be cut by his legendary Zantetsuken blade, so ...

Good movie. Great suspense. And a deadly treasure.

The cast have all gathered to this island. But their motives are each different.
Lupin wants a secret treasure.
Fujiko is being a traitorous seductress as usual. But atleast its towards the bad guys and not her friends.
Jigen wants revenge.
Goemon wants to prove the power of his sword.
Zenigata wants to capture Lupin. Unfortunately he doesnt get to do anything in this movie other than just be there.

And in the middle of it all are 2 military forces fighting for power.
