I don't expect a movie to retell the manga story down to the most minute of details of course, OTOH it were the characters of Light and L that made Death Note into such a hit, so the director should have stuck with mangaka's characterization of Light. Instead, he made Fujiwara's Light into a common or garden psycho rather than a brilliant megalomaniac (and exposed his shortcomings as an actor). Heh, when L can counter Yagami's insistent wines 'why do you keep suspecting my son' by a simple 'have you taken a good look at him lately', there's something seriously wrong with the adaptation.

As for Naomi, I hate manga and anime treatment of 99.9% of women, so any deviation is a welcome relief.

I kinda liked it, but Light seems less intelligent compared to the series and....
Spoiler:

To be honest, I think they still crammed too much into a two hour movie, Ryuk was done very nicely though:P and of course Misa is cute:P.

Just saw the movie. Obviously due to me having seen the anime beforehand the movie seemed a bit rushed. But I guess it was done fairly well considering the limitations of a two hour movie with all this content. And the actor for L was very good, although I feel like his character feels a bit different and not as smart as in the original. Yagami didn't seem to respect him as much as in the anime. Also it seemed like the story with Light and Naomi was less calculated - in the anime he's careful to make sure no hint of suspicion can be taken from her, in the movie he walks off after she has accused him of being Kira......

But all in all, I think it was a good film adaptation of the original, and it definitely could have been a lot worse.

There's one thing I want to clarify.

The upcoming Death Note movie...Death Note Gaiden that's going to have L as the main character, presumably as a prequel movie...

Is it going to be a canon prequel, or is it in the same reigns as the 1967 Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again of the 007 trilogy, as in non-canon productions?

I just came back from the second movie.

I watch the anime, but not the manga and I gotta say the movie is great. Some characters seem to have been introduced too randomly, but it's all good.

I saw the DT Movie 1 again yday I just noticed how poor chracterisation or personality is potrayed as compared to anime . I mean the actor who potrays Light is below average also doesnt look Light . Atleast L actor looks like L but his acting doesnt do justice to chara and his voice isnt that suited .

On a brighter note Yagami Sr and Ryuuku roles have been portayed with perfection IMO

The second Death Note movie (Death Note: The Last Name), which is out, continues the first movie, then it ends the story.

The upcoming one, Death Note Gaiden, will be about L, which should be a prequel.


I thought L did really well in the second movie. Misa is <3able.

I was amazed on how Ryuk and Rem looked in the movie. It was obviously CG, but it was close enough to be believable. In the anime, althought the artists do a good job rendering and animating the characters, it doesn't give out a full 3D realistic feel to it like CGI does. I'll give them points for that.

The story was pretty good, though now I want to read the manga to compare them. I know the anime's closer to the manga than the movie, but the way Last Name ended, it doesn't feel right. I know there were two more characters that were somewhat like L as well, but they were never introduced in the movies.

just watched the first movie, couldn't resist as a torrent appeared here on animesuki...it was pretty good! it's quite different from the anime though many events happen the same way. if you've watched the anime up to episode 9, you won't be spoiled by the first movie.

The movie sucks. They change everything. Light isn't believable either. The manga = awesome. The movie = crappy cash in.

They don't change everything in the first movie. It's really just summarized.

Well, they did change how Light deals with Ray Penbar's fiancee (forgot the chick's name) which had me a bit disappointed. That scene took away a lot of the awe of "Light's genius mind" for me. It made Light come across more sinister, but not smarter.

Then, in the following scene with L eating the potato chips. It seems to make L more competent as an investigator.

Thanks for the verification in reference to Ray's fiancee, as I was totally like "what-how come I don't remember that"?

I also felt L isn't protrayed as "brilliant" as I had imagined, and I thought Light didn't come accorss as "brillaint" at all, more like a sicko who enjoys killing anyone. (true but the brilliance as a being wise, was potrayed more as a smart jackass instead).

His dad was brilliant!

Perhaps the second movie will have more of a wits battle in it?
