    check out the Japanese live action movies, they are way better and show you the real story. in the anime/Japanese movies Light's in high school for a little bit, more showing him in college. those are totally worth it

    Trust me. The movie gets 1000000 times worse when you watch the Anime. The anime is just spectacular and will instantly make you forget about the shitty movie

    Dude just watch the fucking anime and then review the anime, be sure that you will review the movie again. Light is not doing that because of a damn woman he loves no woman. hell he almost killed his sister.

    If jeremy wouldn't watch the anime, he could at least see the japanese 2 part live action. Even that is way better than Netflix's.

    Watch the anime. Just watch the anime, Jeremy. The middle part that was mostly the investigation is the majority of the anime. Watch the anime, Jeremy. Just do it ... do it ... there's more of a story ... that's in the anime ... just watch the anime, all the things you found issue with are in the anime. You're watching a shortened version of a longer narrative, which fleshes out all the stuff you questioned ... just watch the anime .. do it ... DO IT ... muahhahahaha :) -Shinigami

  • Firmus

    It's not an adaptation of the anime since the anime itself is an adaptation of the manga. Saying it's an adaptation of the anime feels like saying that a Batman movie is an adaptation of the Batman animated series.
    BTW, I highly recommend both the manga and the anime, they are really good and it will make you realize just how much of a terrible adaptation this was.

  • Chatnoir 77888
    Chatnoir 77888 11 months ago

    The anime and manga both focus more on the investigative part of the story, as well as the "cat and mouse" game between Light and L and (in the first half anyway) Light and Ryuk's relationship (although the anime and manga more have Ryuk as a neutral background/side character rather than some major influence like this movie seems to make him).

    I'm actually glad that he hasn't seen the anime. Chris has seen the anime, and he reviewed it both as a film AND an adaptation, but I'm more interested in a review from someone who hasn't seen the anime or read the manga. So thanks Jeremy for not watching in advance.

    this version of the movie was trash, nothing more said that others have already said. just watch and review the anime if you haven't already. it really is a Masterpiece of a plot if you haven't yet seen it. watch it on Netflix English DUB, 37 episodes of course, you can binge it in a weekend. anyway, take care

    Honestly, I love the anime. The film... Well it was better then the drama that came out before it. I know there were a few films before it so I’ll give my reviews on those...
    Death Note: Boring
    Death Note 2: Boring AF!
    L Changed The World: DBE Terrible
    Light up the new world: Better. Much better.
    Drama: Garbage.
    Netflix: Good... Better then I thought.
    I’ll say this now, if this was a straight up adaptation of the anime/manga, then it would be very boring and predictable to those who love the anime, like me. To those who never seen it, like my dad, enjoyed it. It got him into the anime.

    I think this movie wasn't necessarily made for the anime fans. It was mostly made for the casual movie seer. I saw the movie before the magna and thought it was cool except for actors.

    I thought the movie was good. If I compare it to DragonBall Evolution, it's a lot better. But the Anime is a lot better than both of those movies combined

  • Austin Bacon
    Austin Bacon Year ago

    Honestly the anime explains why he was it was important he was in High school and your problems with L. Like you said if the just did there own thing it would have been better but since they wanted to stay close to the same story but change it fucked them. Although I enjoyed it as a Netflix movie.

  • Alyssa C
    Alyssa C Year ago +2

    okay... I am not that type of person to get triggered over something this stupid.... WHICH IT IS...ITS JUST DUMB.... Like okay the only 2 things i like where Ryuks costume and Ls personable... (I think he really fits that role) I could go in more detail but that will take me over an hour just to explain most of the things i am mad about...Example.... Light's name...I mean Light Turner.... Come on i know its like an English version but still.... And he doesnt really show how "badass" He is (and thats like one of the reasons i like anime cause they show off how badass they are".... when i saw they had a movie i really want to see the chip scene.... but they would most likely make me more disappointed...
    Basically I HATE THE MOVIE.... And the sad part my mom likes it but she is not willing to see the really deal.... :(

  • assassinman0066
    assassinman0066 Year ago

    I’m a mega fan of Death Note... This film... Is... Not that bad. I enjoyed a few things. The gore in it I enjoyed, Ryuk I loved, L was good, Mia was great wish she was in the anime, Watari was great casted too, and Light’s father was great and I loved the father and son moments in the film. The worst part... Light. No hate on Nat, I think he’s a good actor, but I didn’t see him as Light since day one. I felt like a different actor could’ve done it better. For me, if I was able to cast the actor for Light, I would go for... Dane Dehaan or Evan Peters.
    This film is okay. To people who have never seen the anime, like Jeremy, will find the movie entertaining and will watch the anime. For anime fans, it’s a mix bag. You have people who loved it and people who hated it. I’m innthe middle.

  • Melvin Alexander Ramírez

    Sir, you should definitely see the anime

  • jared dion
    jared dion Year ago

    I think the reason they wanted him in high school is because the first few killings he does are suppose to be irresponsible and not thought out which would besically help L deduce that he hasnt been killing for very long and that he's not that bright.

  • Christian Rowbotham

    You should watch the anime , you are missing a lot

    Don't come for my beloved L and Near and in the movie they gave traits of Near to L like how Near always takes lucky guesses and theories while L always finds evidence.

    tyler wilson Year ago

    gotta admit that opening scene with pretty fuckin cool and the tone of the movie is cool too but thats why I like this movie and yes I've watched the anime it was great but it be kinda stupid to see the same thing twice the soundtrack is awesome too everything in the movie is really fast which keeps u watching i'm not saying it's the better than the anime just feel like the tone is better.

    Dude, you talk way to fast and you're rushing when editing. There's barely a split second between sentences. You don't give people any time to think about what you said. I was looking for a great movie review channel but i'm afraid I have to skip this one.

  • Shoto Todoroki
    Shoto Todoroki Year ago

    I respect your opinion but if you watch the anime you will hate this movie
    1. Light is stupid
    2. Ryuk was good not tripping about that
    3. Misa is all wrong
    4. L is a cry baby and tries to use the death note to kill wtf
    5. The fucking soundtrack enough said
    6. It loses all it's tention and does not appeal
    In other words the anime and manga is wayyy better

  • Shoto Todoroki

    Ok, on a scale of one to ten, is negative numbers ok to use?
    Cause that's all the netflix version had
    The anime is 10/10 I've watched loads of anime, but DN beats 'Em all
    If u havent by now, watch the anime.
    And Ryuk is a shinigami aka death god, not demon

    Dude. Just watch animes! The good shit! You can watch the b tier fun and perv time ones whenever, but dude! Watch avatar (SHUT UP! ITS AN ANIME! PERIOD!!!) then death note! I have a ton of awesome shit for you. U like giant robots? Evangelion series, bad ass cowboy shows, cowboy bebop, you like blood and death and badassery (quadruple distilled) check out bersek either og or remake, attack on titan, claymore(manga is better.... a lot better, its like 2 bucks for the entire thing and an engaging read, sexy and bloody too, so yeah), tokyo ghoul, elfien leid, gatnz😉, samurai seven, bacano, death parade, corpse club. And if you like mystery scifi thriller and so on, phyco pass, phantom, ghost in the shell, ergo proxy, re zero starting life in a new world, re zero(same premise wholly different execution equally awesome....except the endings they both suck nuts) and for dumb fun, adventure and so on watch my hero acadamia, one punch man, gintama, grimgar, seven deadly sins, deadman wonderland and FINALLY horror! Mirai nikki, parasite, another, shikki and more (horror aint my thing but these stood out)
