It’s not KIRA vs L
The original Death Note was brilliant; this film is a dull glow in comparison. While the overall theme comes across, many viewers will find the individual elements of the plot quite a bit more difficult to follow and less cohesive to the film overall. There seems to be a lot of needless filler. Neither the plot nor characters are as sharp and intelligent as the original KIRA or L. There is nowhere near the unique personalities of the two, nor much viewer compassion for any of the characters. In truth, it struck me that the main stars of this film were the Shinigami, which were far more interesting than the live characters.
There is a tendency of viewers to compare follow-up films with the original and that is perhaps unfair… but it is also inevitable. Imagine a Sherlock Holmes film in which the intelligence, attention to detail and twist-of-plot is missing; is it really Sherlock Holmes any longer? That considered, is a Death Note movie without extraordinary chess-like moves by the main characters really Death Note? In the end I was disappointed in the film and felt it could have been two hours better spent.
A sequence of film based from a famous manga is surely expected from fans, so it’s understandable that to fill all the hope isn’t an easy task for producer. However, this movie seems to be much far from “well done”.
First of all, Obata’s line is neatly done as all the main characters were nicely designed and beautifully sketched. It is understandable that several actors and actresses are famous and expert the way they are, but I mean there are tons of Japanese who are really good looking; those handsome guys and kawaii girls but then they film some of the skill-too-much-over-appearance folks. The contrast seems to be a little bit too much. Even though some characters are just new, but well, the standard would have been the same.
More over, parts of scripts and directions were not much professional, much like it was for a graveyard slot rather than movie. Part of it was done in the way that I even feel like a gov. organization was insulted somehow.
Finally, can’t say much about this, no spoiler here, but did they let Tomino take part of this film or something?
Conclusion; If you enjoyed Death Note manga or anime and don’t want to ruin those good feeling, you may consider avoid watching this film.
