Death note 2.
25 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

I can say this is better than the first movie, it is heart-pounding till the last part, the ending was what I did not expected but it was not a very good ending. The story is sightly different to the comic but it is mostly the end part. If you watch this, you should watch Death note 1 to get the picture but I find Death note 2 is a different story than part one. The story, Kira(Light) continued to match wits with L, only to find that he was been outwitted by L. Misa joined in the game but she was quite a fool, she wanted to be used by Light, with her death god, Rem. Some new characters were added in, like in the comic, 3rd Kira was supposed to be a man but in this movie, it is a woman. Then from there, L had to figure all this out. I was disappointed as there was no third death god, no Mello, no Near. The ending(you can't even predict)was okay but I wished it had been better. If you want a good mystery movie, you should catch this! Look like the director was in a rush to complete this movie, maybe that is why.......
