In the dinner scene before the climax, Pierre reveals that he now knows Lupin's first name. In Japan, the "Jr." and "III" naming conventions do not exist as they do in Western countries - craftsman etc. are referred to by the number of generations they come after the founding family member, even if their first names are not the same. The Japanese fan-base for Lupin III generally believes that the character's first name is a secret, as evidenced by the fact that he has never actually been referred to in dialogue or in writing as "Arsène Lupin III". For instance, in Rupan sansei: Kariosutoro no shiro (1979), Count Cagliostro refers to Lupin as "the Third-Generation Arsène Lupin" to dodge the route of clearly giving Lupin a first name. However, due to the differences in naming conventions, non-Japanese fans and sources have near-universally accepted that his first name is the same as his grandfather's. See more »

I would say this is a great movie but let me point out why I gave this a 7 out of 10.
Lighting. I know this is movie about thieves so it is expected that some parts will have to be shoot under the pretense of night time. However, their lighting is so bad that I would just imagine in my head what is happening and not look at the screen.
Good part of the review.
Lupin III is no Rurouni Kenshin. A lot of people expects the fights to be flashy. However flashy fights is not something that Lupin does.
If you grew up watching this show you would know that his fighting style is not some complicated sword style but a comical one. This is something the movie truly captured.
