Trivia

Producer Roy Lee stated that the film is "definitely for adults. It has a zero chance it will get below an R-rating." He also stated that it "will be one of the first manga adaptations that feels very grounded but still has fantastical elements." See more »

Goofs

Light gives Watari 48 hours to get to New York, and Watari boards a train from Seattle to New York. As of 2017, the train would take about 70 hours to get to New York and therefore, his death would've occurred MUCH earlier/on the train. See more »

Quotes

Light Turner: Okay, relax, Light. You're asleep. You're asleep and you're... dreaming of some 8-foot tall demon-looking motherfucker.
Ryuk: Ohhh, yes! A dream! I like that. Dreams are places you can have fun, right? It's all in your mind, so why not enjoy it?

An insult to the original Death Note (Desu Nōto)
25 August 2017 | by (Venezuela) – See all my reviews

I have never felt compelled to write any reviews but I felt that I needed to say something for this movie.

I normally like Netflix TV shows but movies lately have been really sub- par with this one being the worst I've seen from them.

This is a total waste of time and this movie should have never been made, it's an insult to the original Death Note (Desu Nōto). The plot was totally ruined since it was changed from the original, yeah they kept the premise but they decided it was a good idea to mix it up with stupid teen drama/relationship and a bunch of other nonsensical BS.

Go watch Desu Nōto instead if you haven't or if you have then watch it again!
