Taking place after the events of the first movie Light joins the task force headed by L and a new Kira emerges. Running at over 2 hours the suspense never lets up and is a satisfying conclusion to the live action death note movies. As with the last movie the performances and direction are excellent as with newcomer Erika Toda who stole the screen as Misa Amane and Kenichi Mastuyama as L. The rest of the series was adapted into the live action version and much of the final part of the original series was cut out leaving the movie to head off in its own direction whilst staying true to the manga/anime. Fans of Death Note might like this live action ending better since its much more unexpected and satisfying unlike the anime version.
