The world's greatest blue sapphire, the "blue lapis fist", said to have sunk in a pirate ship in the late 19th century, on the coasts of Singapore. A local millionaire plots to retrieve it, and when it's exhibited in an exhibition at the Singaporean Marina Sands hotel, a murder takes place. A bloody Kaitou Kid announcement card is found in the crime scene.

In the meantime, Ran and Sonoko have come to Singapore to see a karate tournament held there. Conan, who doesn't have a passport and can't travel overseas, was supposed to stay at home. But Kid, who wants to make use of him, uses a magical trick to forcibly drag him to Singapore. Conan must obey Kid if he wants to get back to Japan, gets his glasses, wristwatch and clothes, amongst others, all stolen from him and he has to disguise himself.

Ran, who doesn't realize who he is, asks him his name and he improvises the name Arthur Hirai. Kid eventually gets a hold of information about the "fist" being stored in a manor's underground vault. Just when he was thinking that he'd made it inside very easily, he finds a dangerous trap awaiting him. Facing him is the strongest karateka with 400 consecutive victories: Makoto Kyogoku.

After 22 movies there isn't much they can do in terms of mystery, so what they do is turn the series into a battle shounen.
I know Detective Conan movies always had overexaggerated action, I'm fine with that, but they weren't missing the mystery and how the characters used their brains to overcome every problem.
This movie is just pure action with a lot of explosions and almost super powers (it's hard to imagine anyone was actually looking forward to see Makoto go super-saiyan and beat up bad guys), and the murder case was too weak even for a spin-off.
Overall this movie is not bad as a read more

Detective Conan, a masterpiece. I've been watching this anime for more than 12 years. Every single movie has an outstanding story as well as the animation. This particular one was very well put out. I would 100% recommend it. I'm sure you will enjoy it as well, although I don't like many many animes this one is one that I will never dislike. I have been waiting for Katou Kid to appear once again, and this was a nice appearance. So much suspense and makes you jump out of excitement. You also start to suspect everyone but of course it'll always be the one read more

I didn't hate this, but it's a real snoozer for almost the entire time. The mystery isn't interesting. The characters' relationships aren't particularly thrilling. Half of it is in awful Engrish, which was A Choice.

The climax, while very action-y and well-realized, wasn't *that* good, so I can't even recommend waiting for it.

Just kinda baffling to have a Kaito Kid movie with so little magic, and so little style...

And Haibara is barely in it, so what's the point? Shinichi and Ran will just never interest me as much. Give me a movie about Haibara that's actually ABOUT her. Let her be the main character. Please.

After first hearing about this movie, I had a pretty good feeling about what I was getting into: it will be really weird, but a little fun. For one, I had no idea how a movie set outside japan will be done, let alone it being focused on a character I almost forgot about. However, with it being another Kaito Kid movie, I felt assured that we would at least get some fun moments thrilling heists and goofy not-Shinichi moments. And sure enough, that's exactly what I got (warning: long review full of spoilers).

To start with, this movie looks really good! Whether it’s because of read more
