Man this shit is a mess.

I like Winguard, but holy shit!

Keep in mind that I never saw the anime.

The live action version? It's from a few years back. Update IMDB says 2006.

I used to have both on DVD, probably still do.

Besides the weak CGI used for the demon, I thought it was pretty good. The actor that plays L was terrific.

No real desire to see this new one. I mean it's the same "Be careful what you wish for" bit.

This film cut out everything that made the manga and the anime so revered. Death Note works as a dark mystery, not a gory horror movie.

Also, the characters are not the same here. Light and L are both geniuses in the show and there's also a lot of time given to just going over the implications of the characters actions.

The only character that was adapted well (mostly) was Ryuk. That was another role tailored for Willem Dafoe.....but Ryuk is barely in the film.

Honestly didn't even mind this live action film. It in no way touches the source material, but givin the time restraints it wasn't what I'd call horrible when I compare it to that. I thought this was going to be a series, which it should have been.

This was terrible.

The anime is definitely worth checking out though!

Strip away the anime and supernatural stuff and Death Note is a 1950's detective cat and mouse where both the protagonist and antagonist switch depending on who's got the current upper hand, lol.: Sherlock Holmes where a large amount of it is taken from Professor Moriarty point of view.

With a long history of crimeprocedurals on both the big screen and the small screen you figure that would be the part they nail, but they never do.

Did make me want to revisit the anime though.

It's a shot where L just runs into Light's house, sits down at the dinner table, and accuses Light to his face.

That scene isn't really true to anything other than the fact that Lakeith Stanfield really was an inspired choice for L.

The movie is so odd at times.....

and what was up with Atticus Ross' score? I felt like he was told to treat the film like an 80s teen movie.

the first 20 minutes or so are terrible, but soon as L came into the picture, it started picking up steam.

Lakeith for L was indeed a good fit.
I didn't like this version of light (& the girlfriend) as team Kira
