  1. Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Death Note

    For all 2017’s problems, and even in one of his worst films, the modern genre master, Adam Wingard, is still aware of cinematic and narrative necessities. He had a stronger and actually-involving dramatic conflict, and emotional stakes, a better visual eye and advanced CGI. This 2006 version is dramatically sanitized and emotionally passive. It’s frankly unwatchable.

  2. DenoResandono's rating of the film Death Note

    Honestly, I just watched a few episodes of the anime version. Then, I decided to watch the live-action adaptation. DEATH NOTE isn't a bad adaptation like some people said. I know it has a limitation to tell its story. It is the runtime. DEATH NOTE did a quite good job. Although there are some plot holes, it still can deliver its moral message. Sometimes man can be evil than the devil itself. DEATH NOTE is still worth

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

    The CGI for the Shinigami is awful, as is Tatsuya Fujiwara. Don't know why they didn't fix that.

  8. Berjuan's rating of the film Death Note

    Can we add the Anime? The anime rocks!

  9. Junda Mane's rating of the film Death Note

    Never watched the anime (don't plan to either). Good film

  10. Janit's rating of the film Death Note

    only here because of Kenichi Matsuyama, but not bad.

  11. pivic's rating of the film Death Note

    This is a very straight version of the truly epic graphic novel series, alas with a few notable differences. The person who plays Light, Tatsuya Fujiwara, really isn't a good actor, even though it's made up for by Kenichi Matsuyama, the person who plays L. All in all, quite watchable. Will see the following films.

  12. Edu Duck's rating of the film Death Note

    An appaling attempt at a live action version of the film, very dissapointing, especiall for me as I am a big fan of the series

  13. pluviosity's rating of the film Death Note

    not as good as the anime/manga. still, thumbs up for Ken'ichi Matsuyama as L; and I like how they use CG for the shinigami.

  14. pikapii's rating of the film Death Note

    the anime is better than the live action, everyone has to admit

  15. Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film Death Note

    That's the problem with adaptations of TV series, they try to ball up all that was in the show instead of approaching the same concepts from a cinematic angle.

  16. Dan.'s rating of the film Death Note

    it tried, and is by no means bad, but a live action version just cannot rival the anime... simple as that.
