Lupin & co. attempt to steal two face plates from millionare Michael Sizuki, thinking that they will lead to an ancient treasure when brought together. However, it soon becomes apparent that there is more behind the plates then meets the eye.

This Lupin the 3rd movie doesn't really have much that sets it apart from the rest of the series. The only odd things about the movie is that for all but ten minutes of the movie, Goemon doesn't have his sword, and Jegan's toothache keeps him from shooting straight. One good thing this particular movie does is that you get to see into Inspector Zenagata's personal life and his motivations for doing what he does. Other than that though, it's a pretty average Lupin movie.

Of all the Lupin animated features that the saga has had in its long history, this one is my top favourite. It embodies all the elements that make up a great Lupin tale, but also stands out as being different from a normal expected Lupin tale. And it's just so much fun to see, too! Not since the Miyazaki era has there been a Lupin story that has been as entertaining as this one.

The story is the standard for a "soft-boiled" Lupin tale: Lupin and his mates carry out a caper with Zenigata in pursuit, Fujiko has her own plans in effect, and then everyone read more

This is definitely one of the better Lupin specials!

Yay, Zenigata! He gets a plot and it's not ridiculous! The special delivers his traditional buffoonery early on so that he can later be a badass without it detracting from the character history. Which I think is important because with Lupin being a ridiculously amazing thief, his opponent (even if a quarter of the time they end up more friendly than enemies) needs to be top notch too. This one features a lot of Lupin and Zenigata working together, which I have to admit I am a fan of. But don't worry, the dynamics are back to read more
