Storyline

Detective Shinichi Kudo was once a brilliant teenage detective until he was given a poison that reverted him to a 4 year old. He's taken the name Conan Edogawa so no one (except an eccentric inventor) will know the truth. Now he's got to solve a series of bombings before his loved ones become victims. Who is this madman and why is he doing this. Only the young genius can save the day but will even he be up to the task? Written by Kai-18

Quotes

Conan Edogawa: [Ran and Conan are safely outside after Ran managed to cut the correct wire on the bomb] Oh yeah! Shin'ichi-niichan was puzzled about one thing! He said, "I was sure that Ran would have cut the red wire, so why did she cut the blue one?"
Ran Mouri: That's because I didn't want to cut it.
[she and Conan look up at the poster of the movie Ran and Shin'ichi were supposed to go see; "Legend of the Red Thread"]
Ran Mouri: The red thread might be connected with Shin'ichi, right?

Conan's first movie.
21 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was Spring, and Ran is hoping to go out on a date with Shinichi on his birthday after having a conversation with him on the phone. Which was actually Conan, who in reality is Shinichi in the body of a kid caused by an unknown capsule used by 2 suspicious men in black. Conan couldn't find any other excuse to get himself out of this mess as Ran insisted that he'd be there in person.

On the day of his birthday, Conan receives a phone call at his place. The caller wants to speak to Shinichi so Conan used his voice changing tie to communicate. The caller told him he's planted bombs in several locations. And is giving him clues on where each of them are located. Prof. Asawa believed it's only a prank phone call. But Conan knows it was for real. Because prank callers don't use voice manipulators.

For 24 hours Conan must search and find all the bombs before there'll be any casualties. Will he be able to find out who's the mysterious caller? And will he save Ran before she gets into any danger? For only being the first movie, this one is pretty good. I expected it to have more to it. The puzzle on who did was a no brainier, but the story made the movie entertaining to watch. It's worth the time if you're familiar with the Detective Conan series. Those who aren't are able to understand what's going on, because of the beginning having a recap on what the plot is.
