Did You Know?

Trivia

(at around 35 mins) Before Detective James Turner meets L in person, he interacts with him first on a computer screen interface which is simply the letter L. This is an homage to the anime where L as a character is not physically seen in person for several episodes and until then, is only seen as a disembodied voice on a computer screen interface with just the letter L.

Goofs

Mia wears a single silver band on the middle finger of one hand throughout the film. However it frequently changes from her left to her right depending on the scene. During prom night she ends up wearing it alternately on both hands, pointing to the fact that this is a continuity error. See more »

Do not watch
25 August 2017 | by itzalepSee all my reviews

I don't suggest you watch the movie if you are a huge fan of Death Note, because it will ruin the whole thing. The actors and actresses were terrible and just everything was a big disappointment. The movie had almost nothing to do with the anime. If you have never heard of Death Note before, watch the anime first and if you are curious to watch the movie, go ahead..But as I said before, you will be disappointed.
