Critic Reviews for Death Note: The Last Name (Desu nôto 2)
It's like Infernal Affairs/The Departed crossed with Devilman, Primal Fear and Drop Dead Fred. If that combination doesn't scream "Watch me!" to you, well, you're wrong.
Audience Reviews for Death Note: The Last Name (Desu nôto 2)
Pretty good second installment. The last name made me sad, my favorite character.
Aside from a completely tampered with ending, "Death Note 2: The Last Name" embraces it's title and surpasses the original film in many ways, even if it strays further away from it's source material. We get more depth into the characters and how they feel about everything, and everyone is much smarter, making this a much more engaging film all around. There are minor complaints I have, which I can't mention without spoiling, but I'll just say that the ending in the original source material was much better handled, rather than things just unfolding like this film did. The direction is a bit better, the camerawork is impressive, and the script is great! I again loved watching this film for what it was, trying hard not to compare it. The ending is kind of a let down, but it's a terrific thriller/mystery.
