[Anime Review] Detective Conan the Movie: The Last Wizard of the Century (1999)

Anime Title     : Detective Conan: The Last Wizard of the Century
Directed by    : Kanetsugu Kodama
Produced by   : Michihiko Suwa
Written by     : Kazunari Kochi
Distributed by : Toho
My Rating       : 5 of 5


Detective Conan: The Last Wizard Of The Century is a Japanese animated feature film based on the Detective Conan manga series about Shinichi Kudo, a high school detective who is accidentally transformed back into a kid and named himself Conan Edogawa. This is the third movie which tells about Kaito Kid, a professional thief, who sends a riddle to warn the police department about his next act. The police deduce that his next target is a recently discovered historical egg belonging to Nicholas II of Russia. The night of the heist, Kid successfully steals and runs away with it, and Conan  chases after him. However, in the middle of the chase, Kid is shot  by an unknown assassin and falls into the sea. Other murder is occurred, and they are aware the assassin is also chase after the egg. It is a mind-tricking case with a unpredictable culprit, but Shinichi a.k.a. Conan once again solves the case and saves the day. His true identity is almost revealed here, but well, who knows, someone completely unexpected helps and stops it from happening.

I have nothing much to say. Not that this movie is too bad I don't know where to start. It's the opposite. This movie is so brilliant and mind-blowing, until my brain did explode and couldn't think of the best words to describe how awesome this movie is. As usual, the plot and ending are unpredictable. They're too genius for me, and that's why I like it. Some scenes in the movie are quite fantasy-ish - something about Kaito Kid, but oh, well, mystery with fantasy goes along well. It actually makes it more stunning.
