YesAsia Editorial Description

After sweeping through Japan and Hong Kong in the summer of 2006, manga-turned-blockbuster Death Note presents its thrilling conclusion in the highly anticipated sequel, Death Note: The Last Name. Topping the Japanese box office for four straight weeks, Death Note: The Last Name decides the fates of anti-hero protagonist Yagami Light and quirky, sweets-consuming detective L. Fujiwara Tatsuya and Matsuyama Kenichi, who will also be starring in an L spin-off film scheduled for release in 2007, reprise their signature roles, alongside new cast member Toda Erika and not one, but two CGI Death Gods. Full of unpredictable twists, probing mind games, and gallows humor, the film is as enthralling as it is challenging, bringing a new level of wit and tension to popcorn entertainment. Featuring a shocking new ending especially crafted for the film, Death Note: The Last Name will leave a lasting impression on viewers.

Death Note owner Light (Fujiwara Tatsuya) joins the police team in order to square off against his rival L (Matsuyama Kenichi), who rightly suspects Light of being Kira. Both Light and L are thrown off, however, when another Kira appears. A second Death Note has fallen to earth, and this time it gets picked up by idol Amane Misa (Toda Erika), who acquires the power to kill with "the eyes". An ardent Kira fan, Misa eagerly teams up with Light to outwit L in an elaborate plan, but L has more than a few schemes up his sleeve as well. Who will be the last man standing? Who will be the last name in the Death Note?

Professional Review of "Death Note: The Last Name (Blu-ray) (Special Price Edition) (Japan Version)"

February 21, 2007

This professional review refers to Death Note : The Last Name (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
When we last left Light Yagami (Tatsuya Fujiwara), he had just perpetrated the most elaborate and successful demonstration of his Death Note, the supernatural notebook that kills anyone whose name is written inside it. As a result of his clever scheming, Light was invited to join the investigation team chasing the mass murderer known as Kira - who just so happens to be Light, anonymously using the Death Note to kill scores of criminals daily. However, oddball super detective and avid sugar-lover L (Kenichi Matsuyama) truly suspects that Light is Kira, and he's not shy about letting Light know. During their initial and subsequent meetings, L basically rubs Light's face in his obvious suspicion.

However, instead of avoiding potential capture, Light embraces the chance to work side-by-side with his sweets-loving rival. Now that L and Light/Kira are working together, the stage is set for an epic battle between two insanely smart guys who like to talk a lot. It's a showdown of acrobatic mental geniuses, who use keen reasoning and elaborate mindgames to outwit their wily opponent. Who will be the last name written in the Death Note? Will it be the megalomaniacal Light, or the wacky but honorable L? And will Death Note fans pissed at the fate of the manga characters find this new cinema version to be satisfying?

The answer to that last question: yes and no. One portion of the Death Note fanbase won't be that happy because the fate of one character doesn't stray very far from his destiny as detailed in the manga. However, another portion of the fanbase should be tickled pink because the other character is served much better than his manga counterpart was. What does that mean to those not versed in Death Note lore? Probably nothing, though there's still some enjoyment along the way.

That is, if you can stay focused. Death Note is a very cerebral manga, and derives its thrills from mindgames, obtuse mental jousting, and layers of doublespeak that play much better on paper than on celluloid. Director Shusuke Kaneko doesn't do much to make the already wordy events of the manga more enthralling on film, and inserts plenty of wooden exposition to keep the audience tuned in - if they haven't fallen asleep. The first Death Note movie ended with the promise of L and Light's coming conflict, but because the sequel has to compress many volumes of manga into 141 minutes, much of the back-and-forth rivalry between L and Light gets excised in favor of talk, talk, and more talk. The uninitiated could get bored, and simply wonder why the two male leads wear so much eyeliner.

The unitiated might also be bothered by Erika Toda, who plays teenybopper popstar Misa Amane. Misa is egregiously perky and pouty, and the adorable Toda can be as annoying as she is charming. Misa enters the picture as the possessor of a second Death Note. Since she's a huge fan of Kira, she also uses the Death Note to punish criminals, and even becomes known as the "Second Kira". However, Misa is sloppy and not very smart - she's easily pinched by L, who figures that if Misa is the Second Kira, then her new boyfriend Light is the first one. It's smart thinking, but Light has his own elaborate plan built upon the Byzantine rules of the Death Note itself.

Light's plan involves handing the Death Note to a third party, Kiyomi Takada (Nana Katase), and getting her to do his dirty work for him. Kiyomi was also in the manga, but her film counterpart is actually an amalgamation of three separate characters. Still, her function is more or less the same as the manga. Basically, she's a pawn used by Light to prove his supreme smarts, and it works just as entertainingly on film as it did in the manga. Seeing Light's elaborate plans getting played out onscreen can be quite exciting, even though it basically invites whole pages of exposition to explain it all.

Not helping matters is the acting, which ranges from effective (Kenichi Matsuyama makes a lovable L) to labored (Tatsuya Fujiwara strains a bit as Light) to wooden or overdone (most of the supporting actors). Again, director Kaneko's handling is far from imaginative. Nearly everything that happens in Death Note: The Last Name also occurred in the manga (though perhaps in a less truncated form), and Kaneko translates it to the screen in a slavish and entirely too-routine manner. The film could have used more creativity or cinematic verve, but the most creative thing that the filmmakers probably did was persuade the Red Hot Chili Peppers to lend two of their songs on the soundtrack.

Still, the ending does serve up a bit of creativity, utilizing the Death Note's rules to deliver a climax that departs from its source material in an enjoyable and satisfying manner. For people who devoured the manga, Death Note: The Last Name has an undeniable payoff. The film largely succeeds based on its built-in popularity, and those who read the manga will easily get the most out of the screen adaptation. Those who didn't read the manga will likely be more distracted by the film's obvious shortcomings (direction, pacing, acting), but there's still a major positive: Death Note's hook - a supernatural notebook that allows its bearer to play God - works in any medium, and makes for intriguing, and sometimes enthralling moral discussion. Is Light correct in using the Death Note to reshape the world in his own image? Is his brand of justice worth the necessary sacrifice of innocent lives? Or is he just a megalomaniacal murderer who's so in love with himself that he thinks the end justifies the means? The moral debate can keep people talking long after the movie, manga, anime, or traveling stage musical of Death Note has long since passed. In the end, it's the concept that's truly the star of Death Note, and The Last Name delivers enough of it to succeed.

The Shocking Conclusion to the Movie Series Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
If you're expecting it to be exactly like the book, you'll be disapointed. But who obsesses over details when the movie is basically better than the book?

The acting is powerful and the voice actors are fitting to the parts (Light's English voice over is played by the same guy who does Setsuna F. Seiei in Gundam 00). The actors overall capture the true mood of Death Note and fans of Death Note and curious viewers alike will enjoy this stunning film! I do think that this movie gives a more comical air to it than the book. The manga focused mainly on the dark points while the movie sort of gives it a light air. (Maybe not too light since a Death Note is just a notebook that kills people)

You won't be disapointed after watching it. You'll be on your seat every time and you will feel satisfied with the ending. There are no break offs or cliff hangers since this is the ending of the movies.

Genius Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Is there still anyone out there who hasn`t seen this?! In that case, BUY IT, WATCH IT, LOVE IT. This movie totally rocked my world and the plot twists towards the end were wicked...sheer genius. Matsuyama Kenichi is fantastic. I thought the manga was awsome, but this movie is actually even better. As said, it is largely indescribable. I can only give my warmest recommendations in a review, please do watch this, you won`t regret it!!!

Greatness.Period. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This...movie...was...AWESOME!!! I am so happy I saw the second one after seeing the first. It actually ends great. My character L remains the coolest in the movie/anime. This movie was so great, words can't even describe. I am so glad that I gave it a try. Don't get me wrong; although the story lines are a LITTLE different, that still does not take away from the movie. The plots are still the same, and that's all that matters. I am so happy that I saw this movie. If you are having second thoughts, just go for it. You won't regret it, especially if you only saw the first movie, you HAVE to find out what happens next. I want to say the second movie is a little LONGER than the first. I loved it. L is the greatest.

Surprising Ending. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
After watching the first movie, i had to watch the second. This is sequel is just as good as the first, however, the ending is a knock out!

I recommend this to Death Note fans who want to continue the live action movies or to those who havent even seen the live action, but are into the anime/manga. it's excellent!
