Medium rare

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.
