Great mystery, suspense and overall writing in this seventh Detective Conan movie.
2 July 2010 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This is the first Case Closed movie I've seen, no, wait it's the first of Case Closed I've seen at all. Okay, I remember vaguely seeing one episode in German something like 13 years ago or so, apparently the series is super popular in Germany and all the movies are released there. Anyway, I became interested in Detective Conan after seeing a preview for the third movie on one of my Keroro Gunso DVDs, haven't seen that one yet, but I will, trust me, because this movie was terrific. I am not well versed in the anime universe, but none of the shows I have seen have been so well written, and it's really refreshing.

The characters, don't remember the name on all of them yet, are likable and realistic. There's none of that OTT anime humor where characters become disfigured and exaggerated in goofy manners to deliver jokes, the humor here is almost exclusively dialogue only. I'm not going to spoil the villain here, the mystery is intriguing and completely baffling until the end where everything becomes, clear, as every mystery should be, it kept me interested throughout. This is not a mystery show like Scooby-Doo, there are murders and some blood, but it's not wildly inappropriate for children and there's no risqué humor to be found, it all seems so sophisticated when compared to so many other anime show. Don't get me wrong, I like silly, slightly perverted comedy animes, but this is fantastic. The final, brief battle with the villain is excellent and the action is never allowed to take over and dominate the movie. Conan's...won't spoil it, but what happens to him near the end and who he then meets up with is a sweet moment. And while they introduce other mysteries along the way they all wrap up nicely.

I have some small quibbles, it moves a bit too slow in a few parts, and the motorcycle chase varies from brilliant to...not so brilliant, the CG, while well done, is a bit distracting and video game-ish. The mystery of the little girl was a bit, I don't know, dopey. Other than that, this is a great Detective Conan mystery. Brilliant writing, an intriguing case and some awesome action makes this one of the best anime movies I've seen, I haven't seen many, but still, this is great stuff.
