* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome:
** Inspector Grosky gets this in spades. He outruns sharks 2 to 3 times by RUNNING ON WATER, survives an explosion, and still manages to find Layton and the others. Can you say {{Determinator}}?
** Any time Emmy is on screen too.
*** It gets even more awesome when they team up.
** Luke running up a mobile fortress almost getting killed several times from [[EverythingTryingToKillYou sharp things flying at him]] to rescue Janice/[[spoiler:Melina.]]
** Emmy proves her pure badassery when she kicks a goon right in the nuts, which a split second later as the guy groans in pain, she spin kicks him in the head.


* VideoGameMoviesSuck: Inverted. IGN (who gave it a 7/10) called it one of the first good video game movies.
** It helps that this movie is a) part of the series canon and therefore b) was written by the writer behind the games.
** It also helps that the original ''Professor Layton'' games were already heavily story-based and closer to "movies with puzzles as intermissions" than to pure gameplay (as opposed to the like of ''Film/SuperMarioBros'' or ''Film/PrinceOfPersiaTheSandsOfTime''.

Added DiffLines:

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The message of the movie [[spoiler:is that death is a fate that all people share and there's no way to truly come back from it.]]


* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic:
** For the movie itself; not only can the audience solve the formal puzzles set for the characters along with them, but most of those scenes use remixes of the puzzle themes from the games. The music even marks the time limit for the first two!
** Without spoiling too much, at one point, Layton plays two parts in a three-part harmony at the same time. If that's not a musical [=CMoA=], this is not a world worth living in.
** Creator/NanaMizuki is Janice's seiyuu. In the movie (''especially'' the end credits song) she shows an impressive vocal range, even if the songs all do have the same basic tune.
** The Remix of Descole's theme.
** Luke finally gets his own {{Leitmotif}}, and wow did that boy earn it.
