Product Description

Fans are heavily anticipating thus feature-length DVD - Never before released in the U.S!

Someone is dealing out murder and mayhem one playing card at a time, and the deck is stacked against Richard Moore! Those around the bumbling detective are on the hidden hit list, with nobody safe from the methodical mayhem of an unknown madman. It’s a full house of faces from the past and clues from the present, but super-sleuth Conan Edogawa might need an ace up his sleeve to uncover the identity of this killer. It’s not going to be easy… Conan just makes it look that way! Time is running out for The Fourteenth Target!

Amazon.com

The 14th Target (1998) is one of 11 features based on the long-running adaptation of Gosho Aoyama's manga Meitantei Conan (Famous Detective Conan, a play off the Japanese title of Hayao Miyazaki's "Sherlock Hound"). Seventeen-year-old ace detective Jimmy Kudo remains trapped in the body of a little boy: To disguise his identity, he's taken the name of Conan Edogawa--from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Japanese mystery writer Ranpo Edogawa. As a mysterious series of assaults escalates, Conan realizes they're linked to playing cards, and that numbers determine the identity of the next target. It's only a matter of time before Jimmy's former girlfriend, Rachel Moore, and her dim-witted private investigator father get involved. The crime-fighters find themselves in an Agatha Christie-style situation with several potential victims and the murderer trapped in an unfinished amusement park. Viewers familiar with the series know Conan will solve the mystery; the fun is in how he does it. When Conan Edogawa is on the case, "One Truth Prevails!" (Rated TV PG, suitable for ages 9 and older: violence, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

If you are a fan of Conan Edogawa, then you're really wasting your time reading reviews, because you know this show has it all. Action, adventure, romance, suspense, and most importantly mystery! This movie is no exception to the quality of the show or the other film they've released. The english voice actors all return for their roles and the sound quality is good too. The plot is not too far from the norm for Conan, but it is pretty original. Plus, having a feature length, there is more time to flesh out the story. Enjoy!

The Fourteenth Target revolves around a mystery within a mystery. You learn a lot in this movie including why Racheal's Mother left and why Richard left the police force. I highly recommend this movie for any fan of the series!

Private eye Richard Moore once was a cop, so you'd expect him to have some enemies. But things get way out of hand when an old case seemingly resurfaces in "Case Closed Movie - 14th Target," a tightly wound whodunnit that relies on the tried-and-true manorhouse-style mystery. It's a far more intricate and perplexing mystery than its predecessor, with plenty of red herrings and subtle clues sprinkled along the way.

First, Inspector Maguire is shot with a crossbow bolt in the park. Then Ava is poisoned with her favorite chocolates. Obviously since they're both main/recurring characters, neither one dies.

But it's the beginning of a series of bizarre attacks on people that Richard knows who are connected to certain numbers (or, if you watch the Japanese dub, have a number in their names) -- with symbols of playing cards left at the scene of the crime. As the crimes pile up (including Dr. Agasa getting shot in the butt), the police unveil a possible suspect -- a recently released convict who Richard shot and put away over ten years ago, injuring Ava in the process.

But the real danger comes when Richard and Maguire try to warn a wealthy magnate at his floating resort, and find themselves with a large number of potential victims -- a model, a sommelier, a photographer, an American businessman, a food writer, a cop and Richard himself. But soon the resort is sealed off, and people start being murdered again. And Jimmy realizes that the suspected man is not the culprit... but one of the guests is.

While the previous "Case Closed" movie was a straightforward thriller, "The 14th Target" is a variant of the everybody's-stuck-in-a-remote-manor-house-and-somebody's-murdering-people type of whodunnit.

SHELL YEAH! THIS MOVIE WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH BETTER THAN THE FIRST ONE! I mean, I like the first one because it was a "first attempt" at a movie and I respect that. That must've went well cause this second is AMAZING! The concept is simple. A good variety of characters show up and come together... AND BEST OF ALL... On second thought, I better not spoil it. Besides THAT part probably just appeals to my twisted nature. Heh heh,

Unlike The Timebobmed Scyscraper, this movie is actually very much in the spirit of the show, presenting a mystery which the main character must solve.

The ending is somewhat supprising, but I figured out the romanitc subplot between Richard and Eva before it was explained, which might mean I'm a little disturbed.
