Shun Oguri (Lupin), Jerry Yan (Michael Lee) and Kim Joon (Pierre) are all members of F4 of the Japanese manga Hana Yori Dango TV adaptation just in different versions in respect to each one's own home country. Shun Oguri is Rui Hanasawa from the F4 of Hana Yori Dango (Japanese version); Jerry Yan is Dao Ming Su from the F4 of Meteor Garden (Hana Yori Dango Taiwanese version) and Kim Joon is Woo Bin from the F4 of Boys Over Flowers (Hana Yori Dango Korean version).

The buy/sell auction of the necklace and ruby of the Crimson Heart of Cleopatra - items which are publicly known to be stolen property - is an illegal action in and of itself, turning the audience into (as one critic has put it) "a room full of witnesses for illegal dealings". Therefore, Zenigata should not need Lupin to "steal" the Crimson Heart to provide proof for Michael and Pramuk's illegal activities, and his throwaway line directed at Miss Vee referencing this fact does not make it any more logical.

If you like a detective thriller kind of story with lots of action, you could do a lot worse than this. It's fun, has a lot of good stunts and it's an easy watch. There might not be the biggest acting challenge going on and the characters may seem easily drawn too, but that shouldn't be an obstacle in enjoying this.
It might be a bit too long for some people though and I am not that familiar with the general story of "Lupin" (this is not the first movie made about this character), so I can't tell you how this is compared to other sources/movies. I do know that I did enjoy myself and was entertained enough to give this at least one thumb up
