One of the top 10 of the best Lupin the 3rd TV movies
27 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This here is yet another great Lupin the 3rd TV movie. Has plenty of gun fire and action.

Aired on Japanese Network back in 2001. Unlike most Lupin TV movies this one has a great deal of Gun violence and some serious role play. Nothing compared to Island of Assassins(since that's by far the most violent Lupin TV movie).

Lupin the 3rd is at it again, this time he's in San Fransico, California to uncover the JFK and Robert Kennedy assassination files that are under the ownership of a group of 7 dangerous Gangsters.

Throughout the movie Lupin and his gang try to find the secret of this society and what it has to do with Alcatraz Island and the Assassination of John and Robert Kennedy.

The animation is top notch. Only has 5% of CGI in it. Highly recommended to the Die-hard Lupin the 3rd fans. I'm hoping that this Title will be released in the USA someday.
