Asian Drama Fever

Movie: L: Change the World

Posted on: July 14, 2008

I’ve been really behind on keeping a post on everything I watch. With so much free time this summer, I’m moving through dramas and movies (and not only Asian ones either) crazy fast. Here’s the latest movie I’ve seen:

L: change the world

L has to be the most attractive emo-looking character in the Asian entertainment industry. And for playing this role so well, I applaud Kenichi Matsuyama. Other than the horribly graphic scenes of victims of the the infectious virus dying, I really enjoyed the movie. For strange reason, I found the movie quiet comical. Really love the character L and he totally deserved this – his own movie!

Plot

Ken’ichi Matsuyama reprises his role as L Lawliet from the previous Death Note films. The film chronicles the final 23 days of L’s life, as he solves one final case involving a bioterrorist group that aims to wipe out much of humanity with a virus with ten times the infectiousness of Ebola, taking a boy, the sole survivor of its use in a village in Thailand, and a junior high schooler named Maki Nikaido under his wing.

Shunji Fujimura also reprises his role as Watari, though he dies early in the film as per the events of The Last Name. The characters Misa Amane, death god Ryuk, and Light Yagami also all have brief cameos in the film.
