    eu acreditei, mas não, não, não

  2. Morris Bros.'s rating of the film Death Note

  3. f-nanda's rating of the film Death Note

    Liked the idea. Gotta see the anime.

  4. Cbarky99's rating of the film Death Note

    "Light Turner's heart stops beating at midnight." "No...you're...trying to kill me?"

  5. Görkem Demir's rating of the film Death Note

  6. mootz15's rating of the film Death Note

    Able peformances (though Dafoe is too cartoonish with his eevel cackles) but an altogether ludicrous story that lacks the necessary humour to make it digestible.

  7. FCC 86's rating of the film Death Note

    "Sleep is key to strong thought"

  8. tayli's rating of the film Death Note

  9. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Death Note

    1-2. Leans too heavily into the romantic connection between Light and Mi(s)a, essentially turning this piece into a 'Final Destination'-style pulp horror flick revolving around a 'Bonnie & Clyde' dynamic that doesn't quite work out. The movie sports a pervasive sense of style that hits just as much as it misses, and the premise lacks the time and the 'heart' that the original anime and manga had.

  10. Levent Güçer's rating of the film Death Note

    Don't listen to the angry weebs, it's really not that bad.

  11. Hira's rating of the film Death Note

  12. IKB 191's rating of the film Death Note

  13. PeterK94's rating of the film Death Note

    Misunderstands its source material. A complete mess that fails to communicate whatever point it was trying to convey.

  14. Severus Snape's rating of the film Death Note

  15. oldeuboi's rating of the film Death Note

    Terrible. Worse from the Japanese adaptation. If you want to know about 'Death Note', stick to the manga instead.

  16. Pymo's rating of the film Death Note

  17. surgery-ethic's rating of the film Death Note

  18. Viginti_tres's rating of the film Death Note

    I was worried this would be pedestrian, but the pacing quickly assured me away from that fear. Wingard quickly jumps past the basic premise to something more extreme and pseudo-political/philosophical. Alas, instead of digging in there he keeps jumping and somehow ends up back at something more generic. Absolutely no justification for the 80's aesthetic.

  19. Jeremy Ashlyn's rating of the film Death Note

  20. Renton47's rating of the film Death Note

    I can't help but see in the message boards of Death Note 2017 hatred a consequence of why Marvel/comic films are so safe. Deviation will be punished. I actually enjoyed this, although it gets increasingly silly with L's intro. There is a montage near the start which should have been the whole film; two teens young and dumb, high on love and murder. With his pop sensibilities Wingard excels in that spot. 2.5

  21. Ştefan Iancu's rating of the film Death Note

  22. Samuel サム Varghese's rating of the film Death Note

    Laughable plot and terrible music selection. Some of the worst actors cast for a film

  23. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Death Note

    Despite my quibble that L should have dark eyeliner, they made a significant improvement by choosing a student for the female lead instead of the vapid pop star in the other versions. I also have a bit of a problem with Light trying to be good. Part of the point of the show is what having the book does to him.

  24. Patapon's rating of the film Death Note

    Shockingly bad. Rushed pacing (basically a 90 minute montage) horrendous characterizations, Ryuk is a joke. They didn't even try to explore the already established and deep psychological/philosophical character motivations. If you love the anime this will make you squirm and if you haven't seen the anime you should watch it and avoid this movie.
