      Audience Member L: Change the World takes the entire time to give reasons why L matters when the anime should have done that entirely. Unlike the two live-action Death Note movies, this one works. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Although several anime lovers may fall in love with this movie just at the title, it's common storyline was brought down by the common girl who causes all of the trouble, and honestly made the movie difficult to watch any time she appeared on the screen. I also didn't think that the L people recognized would be so caring for children. Aside from that, L's detective skills fit perfectly with the nature of the film, and some scenes did manage to give me some sense of emotion. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Very interesting film, Ken'ichi as L was marvelous. He was so interesting to watch, I wouldn't make seeing the other live action films Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Wasn't to sure before i watched it if it would be any good but i loved it. would of gave it 5 stars if there was more about the death note series and the death gods. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Disappointingly, I looked forward to this movie and I was rather let down by its lack of good story and goos acting, for its just a scrap movie to get that extra buck out from the comic serie and the fans, see it if you really really really want to but, I doubt you'll be pleased.
