It works because it's fun
19 October 2014 | by graybarrygraySee all my reviews

You will laugh, be entertained and enjoy as a child with this movie. It's one of the better live action adaptations that I've ever seen. It doesn't concern itself with slavishly following the original manga and isn't afraid to make radical changes or new additions to serve the strengths of the film medium. So, you don't have to read the manga or watched the anime to understand what's going in this movie.

The manga styles and movie styles fit the genre perfectly without downplaying either medium, mostly for two principal reasons: a great visual and a great cast.

Shun Oguri is perfectly cast as Lupin and Tadanobu Asano seems the best Zenigata ever.

Beside the script is based on a series of clichés thousand times played in other films it works because it's fun.
