    They always dumb down japanese characters, same for Ghost in the shell. It's like they think americans are retarded therefore they must do cliche slogan american stories: government bad, boy bang girl, etc

    They turn one of the biggest character traits of Light.... and do the exact opposite lol. Light would never ever do anything for any woman. Yes he’s married to Misa but that’s only because she was the 2nd Kira and he had use for her. Misa threw herself at him and he denied her time after time. In fact Kira was going to kill her but Misa’s shinigami told Light if anything happened to her, she would kill Light. Then after he used Misa to carry on killings after he took on in L’s place or when under investigation. She was only ever a tool. Same with all of his other relationships. His only focus was becoming “God of the New World”

    Okay, not trying to come off as racist but L being portrayed as black was a terrible choice imo. The character of L is supposed to be a weird, scrawny, pasty white emotionless person who is a great detective cuz of it. If Light was black I’d be more on board for it cuz like you know, it’s a different character development. L’s contrast between his bleach white skin to his pitch black hair was very appealing and it gave the character some eerie feeling to him. But hey, that’s just my opinion 😝

    i have yet to see this film but my feelings towards it right now is mixed. From what i hear this movie was nothing like how the anime is and i can obviously tell by the cast, but i just saw the trailer and honestly it don’t look that bad.

      Truth be told, as a movie, it's not terrible. It can actually be quite enjoyable if you don't compare it too much to the orginal version. However, as an adaptation, IT IS awful.

    You should watch the Japanese live action movies version. It's also dubbed by the same actors that dubbed the anime. It's a LOT better than the Netflix version and they knew what to do with the source material.

  • annie lee
    annie lee 28 days ago

    Still do not understand why people feel that this is an acceptable movie when not being compared to the anime. Let me be honest, the movie sucks. I have absolutely no problem with changing the characters' race or story line. However the problem with many Americans action movies nowadays is that they lack the depth, complexity and character development (same goes for the new mangas nowadays though).
    This movie is just full of gross stereotypical teenage romance and violence. It's just one dimensional. As Chris has put it, the creators don't understand the Japanese culture at all, or should I say Asian cultures. If they do, they should know that many Asian movies/dramas focus a lot on character development and a good storyline that invoke our emotions, whether is it sympathy, sadness or conflicting feelings without excessive violence but rather are done through dialogue or reaction to incidents (that's not violence). There is no absolute evil nor goodness. There is no 'moral of the story' shit. It is not some sort of movie you just sit back and be brain dead, which is the problem with many movies nowadays.
    However I could say the audience is at fault too for many now enjoy quick pleasure and adrenaline rush to escape from the mudane life. And of course this will cause other problems which I will not elaborate or else this would become an essay.
    And wth is with music in the movie??????
    If I want to watch something related to sociopaths, I would rather watch Alfred Hitchcock 's works. If I want to sit back and relax and he brain dead for a while, I would rather watch Transformers (though the first two are good). If I
    want to immerse myself with violence and thrill I would rather watch.... nevermind I would rather find some activity to do that would give me the thrills and excitement that doesn't involve violence or horror.
    Moral of the story: WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!! Stop letting your children watch this kind of movies that dumb their minds 😢
    P. S. I really hope that American kids do not act like how they are depicted in dramas and movies... eg. dress in a fancy manner, partying, doing/saying reckless things, the romance and drama etc.

  • Jonathan Joestar

    Honestly this is a terrible portrayal of L. sure he did the same stuff, but in the anime it was for a reason. It felt like the only reason L did those things in the movie is because he did them in the anime. Not to help built and develop his character in the manga/anime.

    • Jonathan Joestar

      For this and so many other reasons this is my least favorite film. I'm glad you are able to enjoy this even a little bit Chris, but I personally hates everything about it. 1/10

  • SinisterPlotter
    SinisterPlotter Month ago

    My thoughts exactly. Was a decent film and all (nothing spectacular but still good) but it really didn't respect the anime. Honestly had they maybe split it into two movies with one about Light discovering the Death Note and his descent in evil and then have the second focus on the 'cat and mouse' aspect then even if the characters were the way they are in the movie as is it would likely have worked out better considering they're doing a sequel now.

    i really don't know why people have such a hard on for anime. its basically just shite animation, all i can think is it must be the stories. the stories must be so good that it makes people overlook the very poor animation. i'm sure there are people out there that do genuinely love anime but i am equally sure that a huge % of the people that say they love it are just jumping on a bandwagon.

    Light Turner? That's how they renamed him in the English dub?

  • SemperFidelisTyrannosaurus

    If Light wanted to be smart he’d make the cause of deaths ‘suicide by cop.’ Engineer situations where every victim suddenly becomes belligerent and provokes a popo into fatally shooting them; at least the cause is always explained. As an added bonus the victim dies in an undignified manner.

    The most intriguing part of this whole video is the mystery behind the tattoo. This movie was THAT BAD. Why did you get it? What is it of and why? Who did you choose to do it?
    This film turned me off entirely to film adaptations of anime. Even after MAGNET made my favorite manga of all time (that they messed up translating in the anime so was curious to see what a live action translation would look like) - "Blade of the Immortal" by the extreme talent Hiroaki Samura. Man is it good. The first few volumes are a must read for comic, anime and manga fans. It made me mad at Netflix for doing this. I think the original creators like the money and recognition that came with Netflix making a movie out of their creation. NOT this abortion. And I'm one of those people that is curious to see a live action adaptation. I thought one of my favorite books, Fight Club was turned into a Movie that transcended and surpassed the source material. I like the Marvel take on Deadpool better than the originals.

    All the character were shit.
    All of them.
    Even Ryuk tried to force Light to write in the book, whereas in the anime/manga he was just observing and enjoying the events that were unfolding.
    He wanted to see if Light could continue to surprise him or just trip over his own schemes and get caught.
    I’m just gonna pretend like this movie didn’t exist.
    Yup. That’s right. Call me ignorant if it pleases you so.

  • Shadowreeper213
    Shadowreeper213 2 months ago

    Something I noticed from watching the adaptations of Ghost in the Shell and Death Note is that American writers, directors and producers like to replace intelligent psychological plot elements with ones revolving strongly around sentiment instead. Ghost in the Shell was originally about action and a complex intelligent plot. The adaptation stripped most of that intellectual quality away to serve the sentimental plot instead.
    Death Note was also originally pretty intelligent, but it turned into a sentimental teen romance more than a psychological thriller as it originally was.
    It's kind of sad that that's what Hollywood thinks people always want. It's more sad that they may be right, that us in America generally don't like material that requires us to think a little.

  • Fernando Aguilar

    I hate to be that guy but I binge watched the anime and while it started out strong it started to drag really quickly. One of the most repetitive and filler packed anime I have ever seen. I enjoyed the movie as a condensed, loose adapatation of the original. In my opinion they kept everything good about the anime and trimmed the fat. I actually preferred this version of Light. I was disappointed in the direction they took him in the anime and the ending was horrible. Don't mean to disrespect the fans but I honestly don't get all the praise for the anime. The only good thing about it was L.

  • Haagen Regit は ゲイです

    Would have been better off as like a Death Note 2, maybe Ryuk after the events of the first movie somehow got his hands on another Death Note and throws it into America; but it just became a shitty adaptation. Ryuk actually looks like he wants to get rid of Turner tbh. Also Light Yagami more like Light Turner...amirite?

    "This is a good portrayal of L." Did we watch the same movie? L goes from an intelligent calculated character to an emotional accidentally right idiot who takes tons of unnecessary risk. Also, instead of just liking sugar, watari tells him he needs to eat it medically. That's dumb and this movie is dumb.

    so far the Japan's live action films are good like the Samurai X live action films are spot on, but anime Hollywood live action films? haha they fail like a lot haha i don't know if it's culture difference but i think they need to closely coordinate with the Author of the manga and bridge what can work and not work in Hollywood, just think about a One Piece Live action films a lot of people says it wont work, but Oda only approved it as long as he is a part of the making of the film, and i imagine it being like a pirate's of the caribean with Willy Wonka fushion with a wide mixed races of actors as Strawhat pirates i'll be interesting to watch , but for Naruto live action it should just be a asian style theme, or else we would see another Dragonball Evolution hahaha

  • Jonny Jonville Jonathan

    You know, I actually liked this movie. Sure, it has absolute garbage and had nothing to do with the anime, but it was so fun to watch and laugh at. When I very first turned this movie on, I thought. Ok, this could actually be decent. But, as soon as ryuk appeared and light freaks out and shit, then I knew it was going to be one of those movies. I'm not going to lie. I do think they had some good ideas here. I really liked how the played out Watani. But, a lot of other ideas fell short. And that's when it's so bad it's good comes in. I laughed so hard at this movie. It was a fun movie for that. I think most people go into these anime adaptation movies, and expect it be a live action anime. But, the thing is, they're always bad. So, you should go into them thinking they're going to absolutely terrible and just laugh at them. Death note is one of, if not my favorite anime of all time. And the fact that I liked this movie, should say a lot, I think. Sure, it had nothing to do with the source material. The only thing they have in common is the character names and main idea of the anime/manga. Everything else was made up. But, again, it shouldn't be taken seriously. Just laugh at how bad it is and have a good time.

    Let’s say for example there was no death note anime, the movie would have been yanno, alright. Not too bad. But what made it atrocious was the fact that death not was an anime beforehand and they took out 95% of the good things and Americanized it into senseless garbage. Light was not even that smart or strategic in the movie at all, and he had the wrong motives as well. Light yagami is supposed to have the motive of believing he is doing good in trying to make the world a better place by killing criminals, sparking the debate of whether Kira is a hero or a villain. In the live action movie it’s very very clear he’s a villain. Not trying to make the world a better place and there for his own benefits. Lights motives played a big reason on why the movie failed. Also I disagree with you Chris , they got L very very wrong.
