Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Japan's most famous animated anti-hero comes to life in director Takashi Tsuboshima's live action adaptation of Japanese comic artist Monkey Punch's wildly popular manga series. The malevolent Maccherone organization is determined to acquire an invaluable national treasure, and the only thing standing in their way is unpredictable thief Lupin (Yuki Meguro). With doggedly determined Inspector Zenigata (Shiro Ito) on his tail and a team of Maccherone assassins sent to rub him out and kidnap his cat-burglar girlfriend Fujiko (Hideo Ezaki), Lupin and his loyal gunman Jigen (Kunie Tanaka) must stay alive long enough to rescue Fujiko, get the loot, and escape the long arm of the law before his remarkable good luck runs out.
