L Change the World Movie Gala Premiere Screening

I had the opportunity to attend the Singapore gala premiere of the Death Note spin-off movie, L Change the World, held at GV Vivocity today evening (Feb 13).

For a gala premiere, there wasn’t much fanfare, although I heard there was a cute young boy cosplaying as L though (A pity I missed a sighting of him). But they did gave a neat movie notecard though. Front and back picture below.

The setting is immediately prior to L’s death, and let’s just say that the writers gave L the unenviable task of saving the world from a fatal contagious virus in his last 23 days. Along the way, he manages to pick up a mute boy and a young girl while attempting to prevent the spread of the virus.

With the standard stereotypical villians, requisite special effects and typical comic relief, let’s just say the movie will certainly tank if the plot is the main draw…and fortunately, it’s not.

There is only one reason to watch this movie… and it is the titular character L, the genius detective played to perfection by Kenichi Matsuyama.

The irrepressible L is quirky, brilliant and just absolutely candylicious here – affirming his status as one of the hottest characters in the entire Death Note series.

For fans of L, you not only get to see L’s lighter, gentler as well as comic side, the writers even threw in a few action scenes (fanservice ^o~) which L performs to admirable aplomb too. The natural chemistry L has with his two other young leads gives their bonding and subsequent parting a real bittersweet experience.


Which made me quite sad at the end of the movie, as it meant no more L. Suffice to say I am now officially an L fan. ^^

For people undecided on catching this movie, do give it a shot if you’re looking for some light-hearted fun. Go in with no expectations and you won’t be disappointed. For fans of L, you will *love* this movie.

Just a word of caution for anyone bringing a young kid, there are some bloody scenes, mostly of people dying after they were infected with the virus.

All in all, I was glad to catch L change the world…and have another excuse to revisit the manga again. ^^

P.S. i hope they release for sale the metal tumbler with the numerous L logos which L has at his desk. とてもほしいよ
