Very nice short movie (or SP or whatever it is). I have never read or seen Conan before, so I had no idea what to expect. All I wanted was a good crime story with a script almost as good as Galileo or TRICK... and that's what I got! TRICK and Galileo are still my favorite detective/crime/mystery series, but this is pretty good too.
The second live action film (not here on IMDb), doesn't live up to what I expected, tho. It's not as fast phased as the first one and the story is not so extremely good or exiting either.. but that's just my opinion. I'll give number 2 6/10
Shun Oguri doesn't disappoint in any of the movies. I watched this mostly because of him. Seen him in lots of movies and series earlier like Hana Kimi, Hana Yori Dango, GTO, Sukiyaki Western Django, Crows ZERO and Azumi - in each and everyone of those he does an amazing job, and this is no exception.
The rest of the cast does a great job too. Kurokawa Tomoka (Ran) is so cute and Jinnai Takanori (her dad, Mori Kogoro) is so~~ hilarious!
this really is an "okay" series.. everyone in it is pretty good. but i just can't take Reba. she's trying to be funny but she just isn't and then she got a stupid accent!! if they took her out of the show i would love to see it every day..
i have been watching the show in 10 min now and as i said before, Reba IS destroying the show. however the 20 year old guy (dont know his name) but he's soooo funny, and he's really saving it all..
so here's the recipe to get a great show. kick Reba of it and then put the 20 year old guy into the lead role.
i really hope someone out there agrees with me and thinks (like me) that they should kick Reba of the show and put someone else in the lead role
