This is one of my third favorite Lupin the 3rd Movie. While Castle of Cagliostro is #1 and Dead or Alive is #2.
There's so much happening in this movie. It has allot to do with this Religious Cult called the "Nostradamus Sect". Which is an actual religion founded by a man named Micheal Nostradamus who lived in the 16th century.
And there's also this Giant Skyscrapper called the "Douglas Media Skyscrapper" who is own by the Billionaire Douglas who is trying to win the Presidentical Election.
I won't give away too much on what happens in the movie. But this movie has allot of good parts, explosives, action, and danger.
It's worth buying on DVD. A must have for any die-hard Lupin fan.
