Critic Reviews for Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro (Rupan sansei: Kariosutoro no shiro)
This one should fare nearly as well with animation fans of any age, provided they are unwavering in their devotion to the form and do not think 100 minutes is an awfully long time.
A lot of fun, thanks largely to the breezy character of Lupin at the center.
The modulation from capper suavity to brisk Dumas-like derring-do is quicksilver
Audience Reviews for Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro (Rupan sansei: Kariosutoro no shiro)
Miyazaki's directorial debut is an entertaining film that makes for a lot of fun with a very charismatic character in its center, although the action-packed plot is nothing special and certainly not in the level of his better works that came after.
The animation is a little dated and underwhelming when compared to Miyazaki's later works, but "Castle of Cagliostro" remains a wildly fun action/adventure flick that is sure to entertain people whether they are fans of anime or not. This is the first film directed by acclaimed filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki and his signature grand vision is unmistakable in the level of detail in the wonderfully-realized settings. The way Miyazaki sets up scenes allows the audience to fully appreciate the film's colorful sets and action sequences is truly masterful. The film is based off the Lupin III manga series, however, no knowledge of the source material is required to understand the story. Aside from seamlessly blending comedy and nail-biting drama, the film is also delightfully action-packed; containing action sequences that put most live action flicks to shame. Combined with the movie's colorful cast of characters; "Castle of Cagliostro" ends being one of the greatest animated adventure movies ever made.
Lupin III: Castle Of Cagliostro features the wild adventure of world famous thief Arsene Lupin III. A Hayao Miyazaki work, Lupin III: Castle Of Cagliostro tells of a mystery haunting the Castle Of Caglistro with meritorious themes on passion and compassion.
