Voyage to Danger is another of the okay Lupin III movies as Lupin works together with Zenigata to take down a group of arms dealers interested in acquiring nuclear weaponry. Here, all of the notable Lupin characters get something to do in this film with the unique twist of Zenigata actually taking part in Lupin's mission for this film when he gets taken off the case of arresting Lupin and having to track down the same gang of arms dealers. Complicating things is a new Interpol agent named Keith being tasked to hunt down Lupin and the gang, and he is intent on killing all of them as he is an occasional thorn in the side of Lupin's mission throughout the film with how efficient he is with hunting them down. The Lupin gal of the film, nuclear scientist Karen, serves to provide the gang their means of getting to the arms dealers and having a vendetta against Jigen for her father's murder, though she lacked much in the way of dimension for me to give much of a hoot about her. Otherwise, Voyage to Danger offers much of the typical stuff you would find in a Lupin III TV special/ movie, while having a few twists to the franchise's typical formula to make things a little different from the norm.

Zenigata is pulled off the Lupin case, gets drunk, and comes to Lupin to tell him the news. Zenigata's new task is to find the organization known as "Shot Shell" and take them down. Lupin and crew decide to do just that. OK, that I can deal with because Lupin likes taking down the powerful and the idea of Zenigata and Lupin teaming up is interesting.

Since Lupin has a reputation of being the best in the thieving business, he agrees to steal a nuclear sub for Shot Shell in order to win their trust. Along the way, they rescue a nuclear scientist named Karen. This is lucky because being a nuclear scientist means you know how to drive a nuclear sub! Oh you didn't know that did you. Yeah, I didn't either and that's where the problems started for me. I know there are a lot of unbelievable things that happen in Lupin titles, but this was hard to swallow for some reason.

Karen upon seeing Jigen is filled with hate for him. Apparently, he killed her father or something and she's hated him ever since. Fortunately, they manage to patch their differences in order to defeat Shot Shell. Ah, isn't life wonderful. It was just WAY to cliched for my tastes.

This is another one of those awful Lupin titles. It has been released by FUNimation as Voyage to Danger, but I won't be shelling out any money for this thing. Nothing in this movie rang very true nor were the characters very interesting and the story bored me beyond belief.

Bottom line: another miss in the Lupin franchise.
