Mediocre end to a somewhat decent film series
on 19 September 2011
Asides from having a brief few scenes bridging the gap from the second film to this(I.e L burning the Death Notes, and Ryuk leaving) this is a Death Note film in all but name, containing just L, from the previous films and no one else really.
Starting off with a biological attack on what appears to be a foreign country, a young boy is able to escape with the help of one of L's associates, only to meet up with L.
Secondary story being a little girl whos father is researching a cure to the biological weapon that was used in the other country.
Blend these together and you have a story about ecological terrorists that want to reduce the worlds population, a little girl and boy that join L, and some drama that adds nothing really to the overall tone of the film.
I found the drama, and acting from a lot of the characters just plain bland, bad even, the *Bad guys* motives are laughable and the climax of this film is so ridiculusly bad you'l wonder why you speant your hard earned money on this film.
If you're a fan of L, you may like this film, if only for the focus it has on L, and his last days on Earth. However if you're expecting a decent worthwhile film to the Death Note universe, you WILL be dissapointed. This is easily the weakest of the 3 films.
