Lupin III: Dead or Alive (1996)

The main story line is heavily cliched, but the dialog is not. The pacing is pretty slow, but then again, I have a TERRIBLE attention span. Felt a little long, with a long-winded ending. It’s great to see REAL cars (not computer graphic cars) doing REAL driving stunts. It’s too bad the quick editing diminishesContinue reading “Baby Driver”
