    My least favorite of the four, but still enjoyed it.

    The new Death Note film is the type of film fans of the franchise or the original manga have been waiting to see for years. It's a follow-up to the first two theatrically released Death Note films released 10 years ago. While the production stakes have been upgraded especially given the maker's liberties to create a completely different story and characters not part of the original manga. Non-fans might find plenty of excitement to be had in this Japanese blockbuster, though I might stress they'll feel left out having not seen the previous films or read the manga (or seen the anime). I for one, absolutely loved the premise the film presented, pitting a new generation of players where six notes have been dropped in the world and L's charismatic and cunning successor; Ryuzaki must lead the grand investigation to find them. Though mostly centered in Japan, this film even covers other geographic areas to up the scale and stake of the conflict/plot. The film is also a lot edgier than the previous films able to keep viewers on the edge of their seats from beginning to end. The characters are also exceptional additions to the franchise, I immediately welcomed their roles as if they were already characters from the manga. The genuine thrills, chills, twists and turns makes this to possibly be close to 'Death Note: The Last Name' as being the best Death Note film to date. I cannot wait to see the film again, as this is the genuinely original Death Note follow-up I've been waiting for years to see.
