Product Description

Product Description

With over 25 million copies sold, the hit manga series has been adapted into two live-action feature films directed by Shusuke Kaneko, widely known for the popular, Gamera, monster film series.

This 4 disc special edition box set comes with both feature films, Death Note and Death Note: The Last Name both individually packaged with bonus discs full of extras.

DEATH NOTE follows the story of Light Yagami (Tatsuya Fujiwara - Battle Royale) a brilliant but bored student with great prospects. Life changes dramatically when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god named Ryuk. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies. Light sees an opportunity to rid the world of evil using the powers granted in the Death Note. Police call in the help of the famous, but unconventional detective L when criminals begin to mysteriously die. So begins the battle of wits to see who really is good or evil.

I enjoyed watching Death Note - the anime, and rented the first of the live action movies to see what it was like. I found it really enjoyable, true to the anime original, and decided to wait for this set to buy it. I was not disappointed. You get two excellent, lengthy and intriguing movies, plus a host of extras. They are shown in Japanese with subtitles, which I much prefer to the rather lame dubbed versions that turn up; this way you get to fully appreciate the dense plotting and quality scripting of the original. The CGI work on the shinigami is also super, keeping the style and look of the anime while creating three-dimensional characters. Ryuk is outstanding. The casts in both films are first-rate, the music is good - what more can I say? These are great movies. The one complaint I have on this set - the discs can be hard to get out and replace. But on repeated use the push-button releases do get easier to work.

Very impressive movies with well thought out storylines and intelligent script. The characters are believable and genuinely entertaining. This is the kind of film that makes you wonder what other gems there are out there (besides Battle royale 1&2 and early John woo films) that stand alone in redifining Eastern movie exellance. These are films for people who enjoy being entertained covering all aspects from love, friendship , honor , comedy and detective movies. Not family films but ideal for movie lovers who enjoy highly original and clever films. 10/10

Death Note is one of the most successful manga series of all time, and from the very first volume it's easy to see why. It's also easy to see why they would want to adapt it into a live action film, something that would grab the attention of many a fan and generate a tonne of money for the studio behind it. It would have been all to easy to make your average mediocre live-action adaptation with terrible acting, but that's not what Shūsuke Kaneko decided to do.

Death Note is a 37-episode animated series, so how does one squash them into two films, which are collectively 4-and-a-quarter hours long? Create a spin-off or a completely unrelated plot? No, instead Kaneko comes up with one of the most genius (and risky!) ideas possible - staying loyal to the original plotline, but do away with the last 12 episodes of the series and rewrite a fair portion of the first 25 episodes. Hardcore fans would probably be outraged by hearing this, but the new script and plot that Kaneko puts forward is an equal to - if not better than - the original series.

The last 12 episodes of the original series are often seen by most as a weak point for the series that dragged it out much longer than necessary. In these two films there is none of the later drama featuring Mello and Near - it's a battle between Kira and L from start to finish. The climax is so much more satisfying than the original. It's quite sad that the original author, Tsugumi Ohba, hadn't thought of it himself.

The source material from the first 25 episodes has been changed a bit, but in a way it only makes it even more intense and allows it to flow well for a pair of films that only last 4 hours total. A problem with the original series is that the plot got so complicated it sometimes lost its intensity and pace.

Don't think that there is anything I can add that hasn't been said already about these two films. Both are excellent examples of asian cinema at its best. The only minor niggle with the set is the product picture gives the impression that box was 'book like' where as in reality it is just a simple double dvd box and there are no extra art books like you can get in the single movie set. But a great purchase none the less. Expect if I had the extra cash spare I would of gone for the single movie set.

A very worthwhile watch, an interesting story with excellent portrayal of Ryuk, a Death God. Some twists and turns to the story line which are not always obvious. I've not seen the Animated or Comic versions so can not make any comparison. Note that this film is NOT dubbed, but but does have English subtitles. I prefer subtitles to dubbing as you get any sound effects or emphasis of the voices in the original unaltered state but others may prefer dubbed so they are not distracted from any action by having to read what has been said

These movies were okay. Not as great as I heard people saying they were and I still don't think that the second one had a better ending than the anime. They also don't have the same great music the anime had which was really annoying, as the anime had one of the best soundtracks ever in my most humble of opinion.

The CGI is pretty good though and gives it a nice surrealistic feeling which I liked, although there were a few moments that made me cringe. The characters are also changed quite a bit in this and have different motivations here and there with different scenes occurring because earlier scenes didn't play out the way that they should have done, which took away from some of the dramatic suspension in my opinion.
