Have you guys watched the latest Death Note movie yet!!!! I was so hyped for it I actually made time and went on the second day to catch it, and even though I took the afternoon slot, the cinema was quite packed.
I did not watch the previous movies, and to be honest, I only went for this one because Masaki Suda was acting in it, hehee. But considering the DN series were not bad, how terrible could Light up the New World fare, right??
And so I went into the cinema, all ready for some action and badassery, only to leave sorely disappointed. And by sorely disappointed, I meant that it was so utterly boring maybe 85% of the time was spent trying to not fall asleep.
It started off fine, but from the very beginning my thoughts were literally just ...okay?? And as the plot progressed, the plot 'twist' was so glaringly obvious, it didn't even feel like there was any oomph when the New Kira was revealed.
Right from the very beginning we had a DN holder who was mass killing while walking through the streets, and she ended up standing right in the middle of Shibuya crossing, giggling hysterically while scribbling names. She ended up being tranq by the New L, but was ultimately killed by the New Kira 2.0. Dumbest Award of the year goes to her; I mean, there are better ways to mass kill, like, sitting in a nearby establishment with a perfect view of Shibuya crossing would be better, no??
But it's more dramatic this way, so okay, fine.
|so dumb so fast dead|
|the one who was tranq|
|the one who did the tranq|
|the one who killed the dumb|
|New Kira, New L|
|New Kira 2.0|
Light up the New World is plain. I would say the only good part was watching New Kira 2.0 hunt down the New Kira, and the way he manipulated Misa to do his bidding + the way he used his own death note to collect the other death notes.
|MISA IZ BACK (i like her clothes lmao)|
|poor shinigami who died|
That's all from me for now, ta ta!
