I love the first two Death Note films, so buying the third was a no-brainer.
I received it in a large package, containing many books, DVDs, Blu-rays and PC games (birthdays generally mean lots of Amazon vouchers!), and it sat on my DVD shelf for a couple of months, semi-forgotten.
One rainy afternoon, it caught my eye, and I decided to put it on. I must admit, I was quite excited. As I mentioned previously, I loved the previous Death Note films, and L is such a quirky character.
... within the first few minutes of the film, L destroys the Death Note, and it plays no further part in the film!
Carried on watching the film, hoping to see a Death Note fall out of the sky, or a Shinigami appearing..... but nothing. All that followed was some boring, contrived plot. I lost interest long before the end, although I finished the film.
Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a case of it not being what I expected, so was left disappointed (although that played some part), it's just that it's a very bad film. I'm shocked it's got such a high rating on here!
