I apologise if this is not the most appropriate zone. I figured it would fit better here than just general.
I am sure some of you have heard about it, there was a Netflix take on death note, a live action adaptation.
It took some liberties that didn't sit well with many of the fans of the anime and manga versions.

This is the trailer:




Have any of you watched this movie?

Nope. I wasn't surprised it sucked.

The main problem seems to be everything concerning with Light. He screams like b***h the first time he sees Ryuk, unlike in the anime, where he sort of freaks out, but gets it together immediately.
They show him as being smart by making him do the homeworks of other people, instead of other more interesting things. And, he does many, many stupid, dumb things throughout the movie.

His entire motivation becomes Mia. He's attracted to her and wants to impress her. That's it.

The movie tries to brush through too much material in too little time.

Also, L's character falls apart in the third act.

The movie sucked. The only saving grace was Willam Dafoe as Ryuk, and it wasn't enough. They didn't have enough scenes with Ryuk. Another dumb movie.

" Justice is subject to dispute; might is easily recognized and is not disputed. So we cannot give might to justice, because might has gainsaid justice, and has declared that it is she herself who is just. And thus, being unable to make what is just strong, we have made what is strong just."

I really wish this would have gotten a proper filming for the big screen, Death Note is one of the few series that would work as live action.

Do you mean the three live action movies that was filmed by Japanese companies?
