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.

If you've never heard of L, Light, Kira, Misa, Ryuk or Death Notes, then I suggest you watch the anime or read the manga, then watch the first three movies in the Death Note movie franchise before watching To this fourth chapter. Ah yes, despite ten years after "Death Note 2: The Last Name", this new edition of "Gantz" (because being a fan of both, I found this excrement this) director Shinsuke read more Sato, resorted strongly to his predecessors, Among key members of the working group to investigate the new lead of the "Death Note" murders is Ryuzaki (Sosuke Ikematsu), an Interpol officer who inherited L's DNA and thus not only his spiritual but also biological successor ; The main nemesis is also codenamed "Neo Kira," after the nickname Light uses to execute his own brand of vigilant justice; And last but not least, there are appearances of L, Light, Misa and Ryuk in physical and digital form to draw reference to their legacy from previous films (that was a joke). Overall it can be thrilling as a police procedure, but little more than this, this new movie from the movie franchise "Death Note" lacks the wit, character detail and emotion of its predecessors that are far superior.

    Soo many inconsistencies with the manga/anime that this movie made me wonder if anyone had recently watched Death Note before starting the production... everything was messy and random. The cinematography was phenomenal and I love Masahiro but this movie did not do Death Note any justice... lmao the prequel (for this particular movie) and even the 2015 drama were better made

      I also thought this way too but it seems they were following the movie timeline. I had to refresh my memory (using wiki) at some points during the movie because I was like wait a seconddddd this didn't happen in the manga or anime what's going on??

      All this confusion is because the manga, anime and movies all have minor differences which causes confusion coz it's all muddled up in my brain. But this movie is defo following the events that happened in the movies timeline rather than the manga or anime.

    After watching Death Note New Generation, I had huge expectation since the main characters seem interesting. Then, the movie just.... disappointing. These interesting characters didn't have enough development. The battle of wits and the twist were a let down. Even so, it certainly has great casts, the camera shots were awesome, and the CGI was stunning :)

    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.)

      @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.
