Synopsis

Mysterious Babylonian Tablets unearthed in Manhattan provide tantilizing clues about the location of the Tower of Babel - not the biblical one, but the original one, built out of solid gold!

The Mob is out to get the gold, but so is Lupin III.

It's Thugs vs. Thieves when Lupin & Co. go up against a fearsome flyswatting Polish Mafia boss, a bevy of beauty-contest policewomen, Zenigata, the hard-luck Interpol Inspector, a mysterious bag-lady AND his own girl-friend in a trans-continental trust-nobody trek after a treasure of biblical proportions!

An essential for Lupin III fans and a decent movie if you can put yourself in the mindset that this was made in the '80s at the same time as the Pink Jacket Series with a huge effort to mimic Western animation gags.

STORY: One thing I can say is canon about all Lupin movies and specials...I learn something new about geography or history. This one is about some mysterious tablets, Hitler, New York, and ancient gold from Babylon. And aliens. Before I get into what's bad about this movie, there's always something worth the watch in every single Lupin special. Something about every single Lupin read more

Watched this on Crackle about a month ago and as a person who hasn't watched Lupin the Third since the 90s and only very few episodes of it, you can believe I'll be giving an unbiased review. The story is essentially a bunch of set pieces strewn together and just gets crazier as it goes on. It never really makes any sense. What does make sense is that the comedy of this show is pretty great where things you'd never dream of happening happen, so it stays entertaining for as little sense as it makes.

As for the animation, some of the read more

Another Lupin movie for the ages, and if Mamo (first Lupin movie) was weird, Legend of the Gold Babylon really steps it up a notch. Mamo had some dialogue and a story (somewhat), where Babylon is more non-stop Loony Toons-like chase scenes and slap stick Western humor. It is ironic how a movie with such a big Western influence never made it to the West.

Directed by Shigetsugu Yoshida (nothing of note) and key animation by Satoru Utsunomiya (Akira), there is a reason why this is a decent anime to look at but nothing more. The action is fun at first, but each scene just consistently read more
