A phantom thief is on the loose, and his explosive capers are knocking out lights all over town! His target is a priceless Russian heirloom that people are literally dying to get their hands on. Pint-sized gumshoe Conan Edogawa is on the case, but there's more to this mystery than anyone suspects. The good guys seem bad and the bad guys seem good, and not even the boy detective knows who to trust. Worse yet, a rogue sniper is making sure anyone in the way catches a bullet dead in the eye. Things are heating up, and Conan's gonna need help to uncover the Last Wizard of the Century!
In the third Case Closed movie, The Last Wizard of the Century (1999), diminutive detective Conan Edogawa (teenage ace sleuth Jimmy Kudo) tackles one of the most complex cases in his career. The mystery centers on a previously unknown Fabergé Easter egg, the last treasure the legendary jeweler created for Tsar Nicholas II to give the Empress Alexandra. Curiously, the golden egg is set with pieces of glass, rather than diamonds. Initially, Detective Moore, joined by Rachel, Conan, Harley, and the rest of the cast, is assigned to protect the "Memories" Egg from Conan's nemesis, the brilliant young magician, master of disguise, and cat burglar the Phantom Thief Kid (a.k.a. the Kaitou Kid), who debuted in season 3 of the long-running television show. But as the complications multiply, Conan discovers there's much more at stake, including a second egg and the only descendant of a long-lost Romanov princess. Director Kenji Kodama keeps the action moving while sorting through the layers of Kazunari Kouchi's intricate screenplay. Conan risks revealing his true identity after he saves Rachel from a would-be assassin, but the Kaitou Kid bails him out at the last second. Conan and Kaitou grudgingly admire each other's intelligence, skill, and imagination, and voice actor Jerry Jewell once again plays both rivals with almost tangible relish. Last Wizard of the Century will leave Case Closed fans eager for more mysteries in which, inevitably, "One Truth Prevails!" (Rated TV PG: suitable for ages 8 and older: violence, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

The movie starts with Conan visiting Harley in Osaka when the police receive a message from the Phantom Thief Kid. The adventure and mystery unfold from there. You can read the product description to get more details on the plot.
The animation and voice acting are getting better and better. This is a great movie so if you are a fan of Case Closed, then I highly recommend you purchase this movie. If you are new to the franchise...I still recommend this movie, but you might want to start out with the first movie, Case Closed The Movie - The Time Bombed Skyscraper (2004). I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
In the movie Conan must solve the case involving a Russian Relic and several people involved in the struggle to purchase/acquire the relic and discover the mysteries it holds inside it. This pursuit leads them to a castle whose original owner was connect to the relic. During the movie, we see an appearance from the mysterious Phantom Thief Kid. It is not too violent, and it still has all of the wonderful pieces to a great mystery/detective movie.
Nice plot, I was guessing who the Scorpion was all throughout the movie and in the end I was SOOO wrong. I still can't believe who the killer was, what a shocker. And the end, yeah, that guy is definitely the last wizard of the century, I wish something like those eggs existed.
I recommend this to anyone who likes anime, Case Closed or just detective and suspense movies. I also advise to check out the rest of the movies, I'm sure they're just as great or better! There're 14 in all as of this year (1 more than Pokemon who's 13th recently came out).
