Not the best Lupin the 3rd Movie but still still decent to view.
28 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the 3rd Lupin Anime film. It's suppose to have the similar style from the 3rd TV series.

It takes place in New York mostly. Where we find Lupin being chased by Zenigata like always. After that he encounters an old woman who tells him that she holds the secret to the Gold of Babylon. Which is in fact the Babylon Tower itself that was meant to be the tallest structure known to man kind. As lupin progresses on his journey to unlooking the secret, he runs into the New York Mafia who also want the gold for themselves. With the help of his comrades and Zenigata using his own team of women to lure Lupin. This will be one crazy adventure for our favorite thief.

This one is nothing compared to Secret of Mamo or Castle of Cagliostro.

The animation is a little sloppy. Makes the animation in Secret of Mamo look better. Has some slap stick humor in it as well.

It's more like seeing one of those Cartoon shows in the 80s.

Has some laughs to it, but wouldn't say it's the best in the world.

I wouldn't recommend it to other Die-hard Lupin fans. It's something to see every now and then, but not on the top 5 list of an anime website.

I give it 6.5/10 for a decent Lupin anime to watch.
