The Fate Of The World Rests In Lupin The Third And His Gangs Hands!
Yu
While Lupin may not be the best anime ever made, it is definitely one of the great comfort foods of the anime world.
Albatross Necklace
The animation is not the greatest, but the storyline is interesting and contains some very funny scenes.

For years Mamo was an expensive collector's disk, now it is out in the best and cheapest release ever, so you can add it to your collection without punishing your wallet.
This is a Lupin movie, self contained and wide screen. While Lupin may not be the best anime ever made, it is definitely one of the great comfort foods of the anime world. It is warm and comfortable and you feel better after having watched it.
The other advantage of Lupin is that it is generally good for all ages, though this movies does have a few non graphic deaths and an little bit of nudity. Young and old alike can enjoy Lupin.

This Discotek/Eastern Star release is even more top notch that the others I have acquired since starting my Discotek binge.
The audio as was mentioned in the other review contains 5 language tracks. 5! 4 in English and 1 in Japanese. If you love dub you can pick and choose. There are differences in the voicings, volume level, audio quality, and big differences in the regionalizations. If you hate dub, there is 4 times as much dub to hate!

The presentation as I mentioned is wide screen (you may have narrow black bars on the edges as it doesn't fill the screen completely but is not 4:3) and had been cleaned up very nicely. Crisp vibrant colors like the other recent Discotek offerings.

All in all another great re-release of a classic. This leaves me waiting for the next one.

Well, the DVD is pathetically equipped, with a menu that totals to a scene select. There is no Japanese language version with or without subtitles (probably because the company who dubbed it, Streamline Pictures, never made a subtitled version to begin with). The movie itself, however, is very interesting, even if it lacks the animation and spit-and-polish of "Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro." Supposedly, a little blue-fleshed fellow named Mamo has been hanging around Earth for the past several thousand years by self-cloning. Mamo, a psychopath, also claims that he has controlled all of human history and even cloned Lupin III himself (who may very well be dead, hung in Transylvania). Character tensions are detailed, and everyone watching can see how the director felt the players in the film should interact with each other (and it's in a very different way than in the "Lupin III" works of Hayao Miyazaki). All-in-all, it's a pretty good movie, but it takes quite a while to get past the toothpick-like character design and the far-less-than-teriffic animation. Once you get through the slug, it's a fun little ride with some good jokes thrown in, too. But, it's still no "Cagliostro Castle".... Final plug: Visit my Lupin III Webpage!

Format: DVD
'Mamo' may be known to some American fans already as the secondary footage in the Laser Disk arcade game 'Cliff Hanger' from 1983. While this film doesn't match the personalities or situations in Miyazaki's Lupin masterpieces, it does stand on its own as a decent anime effort from the late seventies. The first half of 'Mamo' is an incredible globe hopping action adventure going through the Giza pyramids, Transylvanian castles, Paris streets and sewers, Spanish desert and cities and onto an American aircraft carrier. All the sequences are well thought out with a variety of ingenious villains until the middle of the film where Lupin and gang end up on Mamo's headquarter island in the Carribean sea. Suddenly, the plot stagnates and wanders almost aimlessly for the next fourty minutes before the bizarre wrap up. The uninteresting latter half is probably due to the director trying to follow the Lupin manga without proper editing. The DVD version is a little lack luster, but it is still a good film and the english dub is very good. Get it; it's decent.

I love this movie, but it is a simply atrocious to release a Japanese movie on DVD without including the original Japanese language dialogue as an optional audio track.

The earliest Lupin movie many fans remember is the excellent Hayao Miyazaki adventure, "The Castle of Cagliostro."
In that classic film, viewers were introduced to an honorable and altruistic Lupin that deviated greatly from the
one they saw in the manga. It was this film that set the tone for essentially all Lupin films to follow; in
every subsequent entry, while Lupin still kept his ways of thievery and womanizing, he went about his affairs in
a bit more pure-hearted kind of way (two of the best examples of this are "Dead or Alive" and "The Secret of
Twilight Gemini".) But when Lupin was first put onto the big screen back in 1979, the director's aim was to give
audiences a taste of the lecherous, murderous thief they had grown accustomed to in Monkey Punch's original manga.
Enter "The Secret of Mamo".

Fans of "Cagliostro" beware: this is Lupin like you've most likely never seen him portrayed in more recent specials
and movies. This version of the world's greatest thief is an irresponsible buffoon, who chases after women even
if it leads him into a trap that could spell his death, and who hits people in his car without a second a second thought.
It's scary to think this man also houses what could be one of the world's greatest minds. No matter the situation, Lupin
is able to escape from any ordeal imaginable, by using his unique brand of logic coupled with a questionable brand of
strategy. Watching Monkey Punch's most famous creation at his zany, perverted, brilliant best is worth more than the
entry price.

But that's not all you're going to get from this film. Also housed is an excellent plot, one of the best I've ever seen
in a movie in this series.
