Dear Chibi,

I don’t quite know what to say about this movie. It seems like characters have been ‘dumbed-down’ so the cases were easier and quicker to solve (for the purpose of fitting the whole story in) Yet, its because characters are suppose to be very smart that makes Death Note clever. It was a bit better than the first movie, but I just gave up hope on Light… again, poor choice of actor.

I liked watching Misa and L interact in this scene, though it made L less…. wise. I think things went too easy for them.

They did an o-kayish job shortening the story, but somehow it felt longer than the events in the anime. I blame poor directing. You would think by cutting it down shorter everything would be more fast-paced.

There are a few bits I did like though, not to bag out the movie too much. I was interested in seeing how they can pull off the same ending without characters like Mello or Near appearing. I think it worked in some ways…

Anyways, I don’t want to say too much to spoil the story for anyone who does intend to watch this. I’ll finish off with two characters I liked:

    So … not quite worth watching? They do seem to do a great job with the Shinigami though.

    Yes, I love the Shinigamis XD

    Um.. it’s still better than the first movie and they tried to not change the story too much (event though it was changed, similar things happened..)

    So I guess if you wanted- you can see it for L, the Shinigamis or the alternate ending, hehe.
