Conan Edogawa is facing a dilemma: Ran Mouri has asked Shinichi Kudou out to the movies and he is unable to provide a convincing excuse not to go. However, when the day of the date arrives, he has more pressing problems to worry about—a great amount of plastic explosives has recently been stolen and the culprit has challenged Shinichi to find and dispose of the bombs he has scattered across the city. Now forced in a race against time, Conan must not only protect the city, but also figure out who the mastermind is and his reason for confronting Shinichi.

The first movie of the Detective Conan series.

Let me fill you in on the story, Conan (Shinichi) has to find a mad bomber, who's been setting fire to buildings and blowing up other things. Bomb after bomb, Conan finds his way to the criminal, but there's always a parting gift from the villian's.

The story is pretty basic, but it's enjoyable, it's well organized and done pretty simple, yet impressive, the "final touch" was brilliant. Expect some here. It suprised me at least.

The art is very good, it's the same ol' Conan style, yet it's been animated pretty good, hope this will be getting better ...

Well, first of all, I gotta tell you, I was a little bit surprised when I realised this movie has only one review. I personally think that this is a must watch movie for all the Detective Conan fans out there.
Anyway, lets begin:

Plot: 8
I really liked the plot. I mean, don't expect something outstanding, but it was honestly good. Shinichi, who is trapped in the body of young Conan, has to deal with someone who planted bombs all over the city. As I said earlier, the plot isn't the most original thing you'll ever see, but it's good.

Art: 10
Let's talk about the art. It's amazing, ...

Mixed Feelings
I personally thought the movie wasn't THAT great. Perhaps, it's a great movie to pass time if you don't have anything else to watch. I heard that the other "Case Closed" movies were better than this one, so given the benefit of the doubt, I'll just assume this movie wasn't great because it was the first of the series.

I thought the art and sound was good, similar to that of the show. I watched the dubbed version of the show. The characters, especially Detective Richard Moore were hilarious. His sense of humor always made me laugh.

One thing that amused me was how people weren't evacuated ...
