Lupin

⭐⭐⭐⭐ based on 1 review.

tl;dr: A highly enjoyable, solid thriller with some great twists and a brilliant lead actor. Definitely recommend watching with subtitles rather than dubbed.

Spoilers Ahead: My reviews are not spoiler-free. You have been warned.

We started watching Lupin with my parents at Christmas and kind of forgot about it for a bit, but once we jumped back in it didn't take long to round things out. Not that things round out much at all; that's one heck of a cliffhanger! Still, so far I've really enjoyed the suspenseful plot, the twists and turns, and the way our titular wannabe has been both running circles around the cops whilst still running into his own barriers. There have been some seriously dark moments and real thrill rides, all of which has been backed up by some clever plot devices and an excellent leading performance from Omar Sy.

I don't really have anything bad to say about the show. It leans a little heavily on the audience simply not knowing Lupin's plans for some of the twists, but they tend to be well enough done that I don't mind. I also imagine a lot of it is pulled from the original source material and modernised, but I don't know the books so can't really comment on fan service moments. I guess my only note of warning is that the English dubbing is pretty poorly done; watch it in the original French with subtitles to actually get a true sense of the emotionality of some of the scenes, and for Sy's true performance to shine through. But do watch it; Lupin is a lot of fun!
