Rupan Sansei: Moeyo Zantetsuken (1994, JAP) C-90m. ** D: Masahara Okuwaki. Starring (the voices of) Yasuo Yamada, Kiyoshi Kobayashi, Eiko Masuyama, Gorô Naya, Makio Inoue. Lupin is challenged by a villain to dive down to the wreck of the Titanic to retrieve an ancient dragon statue that is made of a metal stronger than Goemon's sword! With this alloy the madman wants to control the world. Some good action set-pieces and a flair for adventure, but plot is not as compelling as one would have it. Yamada's last vocal performance as Lupin. English title: LUPIN III: DRAGON OF DOOM.
