Official Plot for L: Change the World





L: Change the World plot!In a story over on Twitch about the English-subtitled DVD release of L: Change the World in Hong Kong, my ocular organs ran across a full plot synopsis for the film, which I realized I had never read before. We’ve been reporting on the Death Note sequel/spin-off for months now, but never actually knew what it was about. Strange.

Anyway, here is the synopsis that’s posted on the film’s page for the New York Asian Film Festival, where L is making it’s North American premiere; Somewhere in Thailand an engineered virus causes the populace of a small village to erupt in killer acne that melts their skin. It’s the latest toy on the weapons black market, something that terrorists can give each other for Christmas, but there’s only one problem: the virus has mutated and the antidote no longer works. The village is wiped out with a firebomb, but one little kid escapes. He’s a carrier and he makes a bee-line for Tokyo, running from a gang of eco-terrorists who want to save the environment by wiping out the world’s biggest polluter – mankind – using the virus still lurking in this kid’s veins. Once in Tokyo, L takes the kid under his wing and vows to use the last days he’ll spend alive protecting him from the people who want his blood. What follows is a breathless cat and mouse game between L, the terrorists and the police, all of whom want the kids for their own reasons.

Sounds like a lot of fun to me; can’t wait to see the results of that virus. And you thought your complexion was bad; at least you have one! We’ll have more on L: Change the World as it’s eventual North American DVD release approaches, so stick around!

Ok first of all...North American Premiere??, usually isn't that when a film is presented FIRST somewhere! [Just seem the movie a few hours ago at Fantasia] Fantasia has the film like a week before New York does... >.>''
(I don't mean to offend anyone it's just annoys me a bit)

Also..."using the virus still lurking in this kid’s veins"...er...O.o'' You know that boy's FINE!! He doesn't have any virus! Clearly the people who wrote this didn't watch the film correctly...and where do they mention Maki?? (The GIRL who will eventually carry the virus..)MAKIII!! She's important too!!

"L takes the kid under his wing and vows to use the last days he’ll spend alive protecting him.."
The evil people aren't after the boy! They don't even know he exist!! xDDD They only care about Maki!! >.>'' And you can't really say letting the boy draw on your walls "takes the kid under his wings" he hardly supervised him! lol

"What follows is a breathless cat and mouse game between L, the terrorists and the police, all of whom want the kids for their own reasons." Ok what part of that was true?!! K maybe semi-true, but...anyway I don't wanna give too much out...the kids?? Hello!! They only want Maki not "the boy" oh and they finally mentionned that there was more than 1 kid involved in this thing.. arg!! People please watch the movie correctly!!

"..erupt in killer acne that melts their skin." No melty skin..sorry but it's gruesome and really cool..well you'll just have to see it for yourself ^^...lol "killer acne" man sounds like puberty instead of a world-wide crisis!!
