User Reviews

 
50% Lupin, 50% Final Fantasy, 100% entertaining.
18 October 2020 | by phd-inmetalSee all my reviews

I grew up watching Lupin and even reading the mangas. I can see how the movie has missed certain beats that makes most quality Lupin outings "Lupin", but honestly I was just hit with a vibe that didn't take me out of enjoying this. It still feels like Lupin, the banter is pretty close and all the cheese and humor is pretty on point too. It's not the best Lupin, but it's definitely not disappointing. Also, that animation is bananas. 👍🏻
