5.0 out of 5 stars Suki desu!!, 14 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death Note - The Movie (2 Disc Limited Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
Awesome adaption of an awesome manga series!

The plot is different enough from the manga/anime series to make it worth buying, even for those who think they've seen it all. Performances from Ken'ichi Matsuyama (L) and Tatsuya Fujiwara (Light) met the high standards we otaku expected.. especially considering the difficult characters they had to play! ^_^ lol

The good: Light is given a more human, emotional side in this film (in a way), but also carries out a much more evil deed than in the manga.. (if you thought that was even possible!)

The bad: The film was fairly short, and only managed to cover a small portion of the Death Note storyline. However, since it didn't miss or change any of the really essential parts (so the fans aren't left feeling cheated), nor did it skimp on the detail (so that new-comers weren't too confused)

The ugly: Ryuk, of course!!! The portrayal of the shinigami is done by CGI, which is not the most high quality in the world, but the support of the other actors makes it believable.

I highly recommend this item - you can't call yourself a Death Note fan until you've watched this! =p
