The movie was set in Singapore mainly. A person was murdered misteryously in the Marina Bay Sands hotel. Ran with her father Kogoro and her friend Sonoko went to Singapore to see a Karate championship. The belt that was the reward has content a jewel called Blue Sapphire. They certainly attracted the attention of Kaito kid (Kappei Yamaguchi). Meanwhile Conan somehow managed to be in Singapore, which might as well be as he could help to solve the murder case.
So what would happen to all of them and what kind of danger they would be facing now? Find them all in this fun Detective Conan story.[caption id="attachment_17622" align="alignleft" width="586"] ramenparados.com[/caption]
This movie was quite similar to the previous 3 Detective Conan movies, whereby the formula was a major case happening earlier. Conan and his friends would somehow be involved with their silliness and ended with spectacular action sequence finale. This time the case did not take the center stage as the story seemed to be focusing quite a lot on the "love story" angle which was actually quite fun.
Aside from the love part, there were also the usual surprising twists in Conan series but the case itself was not really complicated and that liked about this film was the tempo was not really rushed. The plot was easy enough to understand. There were quite a lot of nice pictures of Singapore scenery that were used as base for drawing the animations during the closing credit, and it has an interesting post end credit scene that also gave hint of the next Conan movie in 2020.
The story was set in Singapore and showed lots of its tourist spots (which would explain the huge promotion it did in Singapore).[caption id="attachment_17623" align="alignnone" width="704"] ungeek.ph[/caption]
As fans of Detective Conan series, you can enjoy this movie because you got to see Conan solving case, using his various gadgets to save his loved ones and the appearance of his kindergarten friends (though they only appeared briefly), plus of course Sonoko's crush to a young man and obviously Kogoro's craziness. And that was the critical factor.
This movie can definitely be enjoyed by fans but not necessarily by the ones who are not familiar with the series. It would be very hard for them to enjoy this because the characters were quite a lot and the feeling of attachment would not be there for non-fans. Therefore, it is wiser to just watch the TV series or read the manga comics first to at least be familiar with the characters and style before seeing this movie.
