Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro ★★★★½

'The Castle of Cagliostro' is one of the best adventure films I've seen in years. It absolutely nails the genre and makes the viewer feel like a kid seeing 'Indiana Jones' for the first time. The animation is beautiful, the characters are vibrant, the action is creative and exhilarating, and the humor is appropriately playful. The worst thing I can say about it is that the heroes get so close to their goal so often that it begins to feel a bit repetitive at a certain point. Yet that hardly mars what is an exceptional and joyous film.
