Death note has been considered as one of the best live action adaption ever, it has that legendary status that following its story is not a simple feat. It has been 10 years since the last one so the hype for it was unreal that in my opinion didn't help the movie.

The way death note ended gives lot of questions to us viewers just what happen to the world after? Given read more that death note still exist. This film tries to answer that question as 6 death notes spread around the world; it also clarifies some rules and expands it more which only makes it more interesting for possible sequels in the future. Also, the film did a nice job of portraying the post death note world as how we imagine it, death note used as a tool for terrorism and the idea of death note as the key for world order. Although even with interesting setting, fans of death note would be a bit disappointed here as it lacks the brain power of the original, nothing new as plot twist and tricks were all familiar, the execution was right but sometimes innovation is needed.

Although the movie's substance is a bit of a disappointment what it excels at is its stunning visuals it's so good, it's directed by Shinsuke Sato in the first place, the guy who directed Gantz and I am hero so you know what to expect if you watched those, the camera shots were awesome and the films atmosphere too, and also THE CGI WAS TOP NOTCHED RYUK here is miles better than the original.

Imagining death note without Light and L would be hard but at least their presence was felt from video recordings of them throughout the movie which IMO was a brilliant idea. As for the rivalry, it is now played by Ryuzaki and Shien which was subpar compared to the original but please do yourself a favor "DO NO WATCH THIS FILM WITHOUT WATCHING THE 3 PART MINI SERIES" this will make you connect with them and understand their motivation better. The acting from 3 main actors was excellent even higashide which at first I thought would be subpar compared to ikematsu and suda.


Got the same feeling from watching Crows Explode, just replicates the awesomeness of the original but offers nothing new. Felt a bit of cash grab. Felt a bit disappointed especially that actors played their characters well.

Death Note is the one of the best original work that Japanese have developed and created a truly mysterious story, with creative characters. Honestly, I really loved the story (plot) and the developed characters. The story is quite inspiring, full with excitement. Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power.

    I expected so much from this new adaption but tbh it sucked, suda masaki and erika toda were the only good things about this live action, the new L was annoying and try hard, like they tried to make him all eccentric but he just couldn't pull it off.

    I'm subbing the movie. If anyone's willing to proofread, please let me know. I'll upload it on Google Drive and Subscene once it's finished. The format is .ass since I'm also translating some of the on-screen words that may be relevant (or not).

      I'm willing to proofread. I don't know how to speak Niponggo but I'm a copyreader before. If you're just after the grammar, please do allow me to work with you. I really wanna watch the movie but the eng sub's not available yet. :/
      (PS. I even made an account just to respond to you. That's how eager I am to finish the sub.)

      @Cindy Hanson: I know. I've already seen the Thai Blu-ray subs. I'm not satisfied with it since he translator made a lot of changes in the dialogue and there are translation mistakes.

      @Shay Arabejo: Thanks for your interest! I'd like to include you in my project but then I was looking for a proofreeader who also speaks Nihongo so he/she can double-check if I made any translation mistakes and/or some sentences can be worded in a better way. Anyway, the English sub has been ripped from the Thai version already and despite the errors in that translation, I've stopped working on the sub.

      Shien didn't finish writing. It was missing one last stroke for "Ryou" to be complete. The kanji for his first name is 「亮」。It was missing one "leg" so it's considered misspelled per Death Note rule.

      the movie is released in the Japan cinemas during late Oct, estimating that by the time the DVD/Blu-ray is out, it will be about 6 months or later. (Just for the raw, not to mention it'll take awhile for it to be subbed.)

    Damn! This movie wrecks my fanfeelings. A big plot twist, and this movie proves that Misa-Kira is a sad romance. I don't know why some people dislike this movie. It was good, epic and sad in the same time.

    Let me guess, there will be a sequel after this, yes it has to!

      you'll have to expect for an eng sub probably 6 months or later (counting from October, as the DVD/Blu-ray version comes out only 6 months later - or maybe longer)

    The movie was a very high production, amazing acting from Ikematsu and Suda, the ending definitely left questions and was interesting BUT there were a lot of recycled tricks that we've already seen in the Death Note series so it was a little predictable and had nothing really twisty or mindblowing.
