Customer Reviews

Also housed is an excellent plot, one of the best I've ever seen in a movie in this series.

Fujiko uses Lupin's infatuation for her to her advantage in getting what she wants from him, much to the dislike of his other partners.
J. Hayes
The animation is not the greatest, but the storyline is interesting and contains some very funny scenes.

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!

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.

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.

Lupin the third the mystery of mamo was the first feature length animated Lupin the third film and is one of the best films ever made and now its back. This re-release comes with all 4 dubs for the movie:
The Japanese 1979 Dub w/ Subs Ft. Yasuo Yamada As Lupin The Third
The Geneon/Pioneer Dub Ft. Tony Oliver As Lupin The Third
The Streamline Dub Ft. Bob Bergen as Lupin The Third
And The Manga UK Dub Ft. Bill Dufris As Lupin The Third.
All 4 Are Fantastic With My Personal Favorite Being The Geneon Dub.

Plot: The Headlines All Read "Lupin The 3rd Is Dead" But Inspector Koichi Zenigata/ Detective Ed Scott Refuses to belive that Lupin Is Dead. He Investigates The grave to find Lupin alive and breathing. Then The Chase Begins Again! Lupin Steals A Stone From A Egyptian Pyramid For His Lover Fujiko Mine. It All Goes Well With The Help Of Goemon Ishikawa The 13th But A Conspiracy That Nobody Could've Seen Coming Unfolds And A Man Named Mamo Threatens To Destroy The World With Only Fujiko Mine To Live On. The Fate Of The World Rests In Lupin The Third And His Gangs Hands!

Billed as the first Lupin III movie, "The Secret of Mamo" is a lot of fun to watch. The animation is not the greatest, but the storyline is interesting and contains some very funny scenes. The action is fast and furious and filled with gunplay and narrow escapes. If you've seen and enjoyed other Lupin features like "Castle of Cagliostro" then you will like this one.
