Case Closed Movie a great introduction to the series

"Case Closed: The Time Bombed Skyscraper is a great introduction to the entire series. It is the first of the Case Closed movies and it does a terrific job of offering a movie experience to fans of the TV program as well as standing up as a independent movie experience. The film and the series use the same terrific cast of English voice actors and feature great writing throughout.
One of the most interesting aspects of Case Closed "Detective Conan" is the duality of the central character. The "MacGuffin" within Case Closed transforms our protagonist into a child, who then must assume a new identify and find unique ways to express his detective talents. This plot device essentially allows Case Closed to explore one of the central issues of being young, of being a teenager with much higher than average intelligence. What a incredible conceit for an anime property! Especially when you consider that this same dynamic applies to the sterotypical anime fan. Every teenager comes up against the struggle of being viewed and judged as a kid while internally they have the motivations and drives which are much more adult than the world is usually willing to acknowlege.
Case Closed explores these dyanmics and surrounds them with unique mysteries involving esoteric motives and plots. Case Closed is a serious mystery drama that just happens to be a surpirsingly funny. The Case Closed movie: The Time Bombed Skyscraper, is a wonderful place to start your exploration of the world of Case Closed."

"That movie was very satisfying. After CN cancelled the show I was so mad, but then when the movie came out, I was overjoyed. It was so good. Seeing Conan and Rachel together again was great. Although the movie did nothing to move the series along, it was still great to see some of the stuff that made me love the show. The movie did make me miss the series however, so if someone from CN is reading this, bring the show back!!! If you liked the show, you'll love the movie."
Classic Case Closed, only longer :D

"Jimmy (Shinichi) Kudo has solved many cases, and faced many dangers in the process. This time he (as Conan Endogawa) deals with a maniacal madman who goes around setting fire to, and blowing up great architectural works. This movie has all the qualities that a Case Closed fan will want as Conan pokes fun at Richard, tries to get out of a date with Rachel, and solve this case without anyone knowing his true identity.
If you are new to the Case Closed series you won't be confused if you watch this movie before watching the series since a brief back story is given as to how Jimmy became little Conan. I would personally give this a rating of TV14 for mild violence, blood, suggestions of alcohol use, smoking, and buildings being blown up.

"The city's buildings are placed with bombs. Edogawa Conan(Jimmy Kudo) eliminates all the bombs that are placed. Before this accidents were happened, Jimmy Kudo is invited by famous architect Moriya Teiji. There is one coincidence that all mansions that were arsoned were all made by Moriya Teiji. Conan solves the problem by using his brain and solves who were placing bombs and arsoning."
