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

Hi, Conan
15 May 2017 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

Well here I am started with another widely popular anime series, this time "Detective Conan". This is the first of many movies made based on the popular anime. What I love about this movie is how they tell you his backstory nice and clear cut at the beginning of the movie. Okay, I already knew it, but this is still nice. What I still find odd is that it's about a guy who takes a sort of magic potion that turns him into a kid. A lot of his later adventures feature him debunking supernatural claims! What?! I thought this would be like James Bond what with him showing off his high tech gadgets in the beginning.

Instead, it really was more what I expected with a standard murder mystery genre. Well, it was still detective work like "Castle". Dang, I've been bringing that up too much. Despite the title, a lot of the movie is spent with Conan trying to save trains from being blown up. As you would expect, there are mysteries that the audience has to follow. Through all this, we do get some ordinary scenes of the characters hanging out. I was a bit disappointed the actual skyscraper didn't appear until much later. The finale is still very well done and the tension is built wonderfully at the end too. ***
