MUSIC 10/10
I always love Lupin III soundtrack. Love going on a drive ...

Sound:
1) Lupin III's iconic theme song was ruined by some dodgy lyrics and vocals. For 50 years, the instrumental has been a constant presence in every episode, movie, OVA, special. Yet, for some odd reason, this movie wanted it to be different and it was just ...
