Even setting aside the whitewashing and blatant disregard for the source material, it's still shit. Light and L are supposed to be geniuses but constantly make one emotional, irrational decision after another. The story is so simplified a child could see every twist coming from miles away. Instead of the deep themes of the anime we have inane teen melodrama. As far as worthless live action adaptions go it may not be quite as abhorrent as Dragon Ball Evolution, but it's definitely not far behind.

Easily the worst film I've seen this year. One of those films that is both baffling, as to why they actually made it and if you are to "re-make" it, why you wouldn't make it better. The whitewashing aside, they've also tried to westernise the film and it doesn't work. The film also rushes through, almost like they know you've seen the original, so they didn't bother. The best thing might actually be Willem Dafoe's voice but that's definitely not enough to warrant a watch.

A suspenseful story that fails on a few levels, however it has a few nice plot turns. The creepy death monster served little to no actual purpose. Margaret Qualley was gorgeous. Nat Wolff was adequate. Lakeith Stanfield gave a memorable performance as the odd detective. Other supporting cast was good. The premise was not supported by even a flimsy narrative. Music was great, as was the film quality in general. Not terrific but also not a complete waste of time.

Good score,good voice but estranging CGI for Ryuk,Light's father was ok, and that's where "the good" ends.Light's just a stupid kid,nothing about him proves he's in any way intelligent (other than ppl saying so) or a worthy opponent for L (who is a whole other kind of stupid in this flick).There is barely any tension between the two,or even a shred of intelligent discourse throughout the entire movie.It's entertaining to some extent,but most of it has nothing to do with what Death Note entails.

Honestly, it looks cool and had a good soundtrack, and some of the action sequences were decent, and if it wasn't trying to make the same mistakes every bad American movie makes - bullying subplot, love interest, that kinda stuff, maybe it wouldn't be so bad.

This movie is sometimes entertaining. The visuals are nice. However, that is basically all this movie has going for it. It tries going in a ton of different directions down the highway of completely stupid bullshit. They insert third grade cartoon humor into a serious r-rated manga which leaves you with the taste of vomit in your mouth. The romance is fucking stupid. Listen, I don't have enough characters to tell you how fucking trash this movie is. Just know it is trash.

Netflix probably paid a lot of money for the rights to this, they probably fronted a lot of money on it too, so it's quite disappointing that it was so poorly handled. Firstly, this script plain sucks, dialog is fine, but the story here moves retardedly, they could have spent the entire duration on Light using the death note and creating the fictional Kira, but instead we were treated to a break neck montage and then BAM, L comes in and ruins the movie. Seriously, the character is that bad.

There is no point in comparing the original material to this movie, this is an interpretation in the sense that takes some elements from the original and names but rearranges the whole story including the personalities of the characters. It’s not a bad teenager movie, has some thrilling moments and the supernatural elements don’t interfere with the character's development, it’s entertaining.

Hollywood should stay the hell away from japanese film remakes! It's so frustrating even for someone who didnt watch the original! Light is pictured as such a weak charakter and all this evil couple relationship with Mia is so awfull! Not to mention L who turns out to be some revenge seeking freak, chased away by the cops (really Hollywood? Black guy being beaten up by the white cop/dad?) the music is like some late 90s chick flick movies. to all of whom liked the japanese movie:dont watch it!

Horror beyond words, it certainly looks like a parody at times. No logic, random character behaviour, the songs they put sometimes... No need to compare with anything previously made of Death Note to realize it's horrible, this is not just a fan that didn't like this version. It's just a mess and it will look also that way to people that knew nothing related to Death Note before.

Even without any prior knowledge of the original story, it is clear that Death Note rushes through its material at breakneck speed. This comes at the cost of often silly plot devices and missing character motivations. Wingard has some slick directing, at times (slow down on the Dutch Angles dude), but the film ultimately falls to poor acting and and poor screenplay. I have no idea what movie Keith Stanfield thought he was in.

TO BE HONEST: I did not have high hopes for this movie.. BUT it was better than I could have imagined haha. Although Light was pretty dumb and Mia got introduced very early and Ryuk had a more 'active' role in this version, I liked the ending in which Light finally really used the Death Note like he does in the anime series. HOWEVER, this Death Note movie has been changed into a standard teenage horror flick. F@#% You for doing that. It's a work of art, not this @#%.

You have to wonder what was going through the filmmaker's minds. Why even make this movie? It adds nothing. It eliminates everything clever about the original and strains it through this idiotic "high-school" filter. Ryuk, who's so awesome in the original, is braindead here, reduced to a generic "villain" type. It saddens me that people might only watch this, and conclude that "Death Note is dumb". An insult.

I never watched the show, and with no expectations going into this it was meh. Dafoe excelled as the demon/monster of this movie, and by far was the coolest part of this movie. However, I felt bored 20-25 min into this and not until Stanfield's character was introduced, did I care about any of it. The main leads themselves were fine, and I found their chemistry passable but I kinda expected more high steaks situations that mattered more than just cliche horror deaths. Nothing felt important.

The anime was good but way too pretentious despite the many drawbacks. This however is just a fast-paced GFY to all the fans who think the source material is untouchable because of inane reasons. Too bad it' too rushed, because otherwise it would be as good as Wingard's other big films.

Wingard chooses maybe the lighter side of possibilities, but not the easiest. Instead, he takes his chances by making a fully nostalgic and self-conscious teen movie with tentacles reaching gore, romance and cartoonish comedy -- not to mention the absolutely brilliant soundtrack choices. Concept is perfectly suited to the fast-paced, teen angst-driven first half, but not so smooth when Wingard has to pull of a part CSI, part chess game between L and Light. Another victim of fandom entitlement.

It wasn't until after I had finished watching this that I realized the director also made The Guest and You're Next, two fabulous movies. Then the disappointment settled in. The acting was atrocious, but the story itself was *fine*. Having never read the manga, I was unfamiliar with this but I did think it had potential.

It’s going to disappoint and anger fans of the anime, and just confuse people who aren’t. It’s all quite messy, picking and choosing stuff from it, leaving out some good stuff, and adding some not so good stuff. The dialogue is bad, which results in mostly bad performances. Dafoe was fine, but they made his character superfluous. The one saving grace was Stanfield as L - he was actually pretty fantastic. Also, I’ve been saying this for a while, but director Adam Wingard is a hack.

It's kinda sad that within the span of a few years, Adam Wingard went from "cool director with interesting ideas" to "guy Hollywood picks to make awful ideas seem less awful". Doesn't work as well as it did for Blair Witch.

Ignores the moral quandaries, patient character development, and logic puzzles of the source and replaces them with goofy humor, overly complicated and gory death sequences, and glorious scenery chewing from Dafoe and Stanfield. Any fan of the anime will be perturbed by its mere existence, but if you know what to expect (namely, a film with completely different aims than the source material and some admittedly problematic whitewashing), it's a camp-dense exercise in hyperstylized entertainment.

Rules for westernizing Death Note: RULE #66: Light should use the Death Note because Ryuk persuaded him to, not out of his own volition. RULE #67: Absolutely no gambits. This is a romantic drama, not a mind game. RULE #68: Each death should occur as the result of a Final Destination-style Rube Goldberg sequence. RULE #69: Light needs to be primarily motivated by sex, so he should show the Death Note to the cheerleader he has a crush on. Cue a montage of murder intercut with sex.

As a fan of the original, this isn't as bad as some people say, nor as good as we all had hoped. A big issue is that the film isn't similar enough or different enough from the anime. It aims to be somewhere in the middle and as a result it can't help but be compared. The writing, pacing (for the first 30 minutes) and major changes were my main issues, although the song playing on the Farris wheel scene is also a mood killer. It IS entertaining and well shot though, with fairly decent acting.

Thankfully not just a retelling of the manga/ anime as it brings new and fresh elements to the original series. However, one should not expect a witty movie but something rather bland. At no point does this movie try to tell or show the viewer something, the sole focus lies on entertainment.

It doesn't have the time for the character development and plot line to develop fully. The original has enough time to actually accomplish this, this on the other hand is rushed, hella rushed. That said it's done in the way one would expect an American remate to be done yet by Netflix so it's done better than one would expect. There are some glaring mistakes however, things like L - the character is simply incorrect; he is to be introverted and unemotional - they play him more as an action hero.

As its own movie, it starts out okay but quickly becomes ridiculous and stupid. As an adaption of a great anime, it's atrocious. It has no understanding of any of the characters, and wipes its ass with the rules of Death Note multiple times. If you've never seen anything Death Note, there's no reason to watch this movie over the series, which is also on Netflix as of this movie's release.

Maybe I'll get flack for rating it this high even, but Death Note can be entertaining at times. That being said it makes a mockery of the original show, as well as its two focal characters, and the demon Ryuk. The acting is atrocious for the most part, though DaFoe is a perfect Ryuk. Even still, Wingard has always shown a flair for visual interest and in fact carries the film on Final Destination-esque shoulders. If someone is to blame, blame the writers, producers, and Nat Wolff's bitchy Light.

Death Note is a bad movie that fails because it doesn’t give us, well, much of anything. Its pacing is so quick and its story is so simplified to the point that there’s very little to it. Its characters are bland, it doesn’t give any aspect of the production time to breathe or develop, and it avoids thematic depth like it’s something of which to be scared. Outside of a kind of enjoyable Willem Dafoe performance and some unintentional laughter, there’s nothing to be gained from watching [Full Review]
