YesAsia Editorial Description

For the first time in 40 years, Lupin the Third is hitting the big screen as a live-action feature film! Director Kitamura Ryuhei (Versus, Azumi) brings the adventures of the world's top thief to a new generation of fans, bringing together talents from around the globe to create an exciting beginning for a new Japanese blockbuster franchise. Featuring a new origin story written with the approval of author Monkey Punch, the new Lupin the Third film takes Lupin and his partners on a heart-stopping adventure to avenge the death of his beloved mentor and retrieve a priceless treasure from a diabolical villain.

Dominating the screen with dashing good looks and plenty of charisma to spare, Oguri Shun (Crows Zero) effortlessly steps into the shoes of the iconic character. The superstar is joined by a stellar supporting cast that includes Kuroki Meisa (Space Battleship Yamato) as the sexy Fujiko, Tamayama Tetsuji (Girl in the Sunny Place) as Daisuke Jigen, Ayano Go (Gatchaman) as master swordsman Goemon, Asano Tadanobu (Parasyte) as the relentless Inspector Zenigata and F4's Jerry Yan as Lupin's new nemesis.

Product Information

Director: Kitamura Ryuhei

In the 7th century, Julius Caesar presented Cleopatra with the world’s most beautiful necklace set with a ruby of inestimable value dubbed “The Crimson Heart”. The jewel then disappeared, it finally resurfaced in modern times, were owned separately by two financial moguls, one from the east and one from the west: Pramuk, a Southeast Asian tycoon and king of a Shady underworld, and Dawson, an aging British mogul and former thief himself who once stole with the Great Lupin. Both want each other’s heirloom to reunite The Crimson Heart.

Pramuk taps Lupin’s rival, Michael Lee, to assassinate Dawson and capture the necklace. Lupin responds by vowing to avenge Dawson and steal back the necklace by assembling his own elite team of thieves. They descend on The Ark, a remote and heavily-armed island fortress with an impregnable, state-of-the-art security system. Nevertheless, Lupin and friends won’t stop until they pry redemption and the world’s most coveted prize from pramuk’s hands.

Misconceived mess Customer Review Rated Bad 4 - 4 out of 10
The "Lupin the Third" animated franchise has been called the 'comfort food' of the anime world. Watch a Lupin anime and you know what you'll get: an entertaining, fast-paced, light-hearted caper film filled with familiar characters delivering snappy patter amidst elaborate plots and thrillingly narrow escapes. Oh, how I wish this live action "Lupin the Third" film had followed that familiar formula.

Instead, director Kitamura Ryuhei attempts to do for Lupin what Christopher Nolan did for the Batman franchise, i.e., turn it into a darker, deeper, more compelling story. What we get is an overlong, plodding, brutal exercise in tedium. The film's opening sequence tipped me off that something was amiss. Depicting a heist of a beautiful necklace, the scene is intended to be a razzle-dazzle display of the Lupin team's skills. Alas, we've seen almost exact copies of this scene many times before, perhaps most memorably in John Woo's "Once a Thief". Overly-familiar sequences pop up again and again in the film.

Things go downhill from there, due in large part to the filmmakers' decision to have much of the dialogue spoken in English. Watching Japanese, Taiwanese, and Thai actors delivering lines in English so heavily-accented that it requires subtitles to be understood is excruciating, turning every conversation into a slow-motion momentum-killer. Speaking of killers, an additional conceptual flaw is to up the ante on bloody violence. The body count in this film is astronomical and the violence too often is not cartoonish, but graphic.

Oguri Shun attempts to breathe life into his Lupin character, but the film's dark tone is ill-suited for his wisecracking character. Tamayama Tetsuji is brilliant as Jigen, while Ayano Go does nicely as Goemon. Asano Tadanobu tries gamely as the always-infuriated Inspector Zenigata, but his limited English language skills undercut the comic effect. Kuroki Meisa brings a Veronica Lake-style glamor to her Fujiko character.

If, as the producers intended, this live-action Lupin becomes a franchise, one can only hope that in future films the stories will embrace the style of their anime predecessors, with tighter plots, snappier dialogue, and much, much more fun.
