Story: I watched this one shortly after finishing the first movie, and if I had to pick between the two, this one would definitely get my vote. It was faster paced, so you didn't feel too bored at certain parts. Much like the first one, there are things in this that are completely different from the manga and anime, and like I said with the first movie, I didn't think it hurt the movie too much. Acting/Cast: I said in the last one that I loved Fujiwara Tatsuya and Matsuyama Kenichi as Light and L, and that definitely didn't change while watching this movie. Toda Erika got more time in this one, as was expected, and I liked her in her role as Misa as well. In the manga/anime, my opinion on Misa always varied. I'd love her one second and then really dislike her the next. Toda Erika managed to make it so I was a Misa fan from start to finish. Music: Again, I don't remember much of the music in this movie. The only song I can remember, other than the suspenseful music they sometimes tossed in, was a RHCP song. Rewatch Value: I scored it one higher than the first movie because, like I said, I definitely enjoyed this one more. Overall: Overall, I loved it. The ending in the manga had me kind of sad. The ending in the anime had me crying. The ending of the movie actually had me bawling. My only complaint with this movie, other than that damn RHCP song, is that it seemed a little anticlimactic. The ending felt like it was too fast at times, and then too slow at times, but in the end, it was still anticlimactic.
