Death Note

The Live Action Movie (Part 1)

I've read the entire manga, have seen most of the animé...
So, of course I was at the special showing of the English language version of the first live action movie.

What did I think of it?
Quite frankly, it was awful. The flaws went far beyond the poorly dubbed English voices. A subtitled version would have been much more tolerable.
Too much of the storyline has been changed in order to bring the length down to fit in a mere two movies.
And the casting...

Here are L and Light as they looked in the manga and animé.

And here are the same characters as they appeared in the movie...


Not to mention the fact that Japan seems to be a haven for really bad, really hammy actors.

Still, it Was amusing.
