ok thx, I just finished downloading XD, now I need the third one
I am what I am
Infernal Affairs is better than The Departed, mainly because of the ending.
Infernal Affairs II is better than Infernal Affairs. III is the weakest of the trilogy, but it's still quite good. It's a magnificent trilogy...truly the Hong Kong equivalent of The Godfather.
Anyways, regarding material similar to Death Note...Showtime's new series Dexter deals with a serial killer who murders criminals while working as a blood splatter analyst for the police. It's missing an L character, although there is a "brilliant" adversary character who is playing mind games with Dexter...however, the adversary is worse than Dexter himself (Dexter kills murderers, the adversary kills hookers). It's also based off of a series of books, the first of which is entitled Darkly Dreaming Dexter.
But really, Death Note is rather unique. I can't think of anything particularly close to it...there's material about antiheroes murdering criminals and dueling geniuses, but rarely both.
Oh hard core. Look who's back.
