Would you use the book?, 1 November 2011
Author: lewiskendell from United States

"Kira is justice."

If you liked the first Death Note movie, you'll like this one, too. Another god of death, a second death note, a new Kira (or, perhaps two new Kira's), and the two geniuses, Light and L, working together as both allies and enemies. I'd say that the first movie was a little more clever, but this one adds some interesting new characters. 

There really aren't many better manga or anime to live-action movie adaptations, in my opinion. The Last Name is a smart mix of investigation, subterfuge and the supernatural, wrapped around an interesting premise. I fully recommend this dark, well-acted (looooove Erika Toda) sequel (as well as the first movie). I was a little disappointed with how it ended, but that's purely because of the characters I was rooting for.
