User Reviews

 
"Castle of Cagliostro" first!
15 June 2020 | by gavinwigglesSee all my reviews

This is the second of ANY Lupin III I've seen, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. But I did notice this: It lacked that charm of the "hand drawn seventies" that was so evident in Castle of Cagliostro. So I would suggest you see that movie either before watching Lupin III: The First, or sometime after. This one's OK, but Castle of Cagliostro is absolutely amazing.
