everyone should give it a chance & stop instantly throwing it under the bus be4 its even out.

plus i wanna ask the japanese fans 2 stop bagging america 4 crappy adaptations cuz i saw the japanese death note.....& it sucked more balls than a gay guy.


I actually rather enjoyed the live action films. Japan's attempts at CGI are rather terrible, but they still make pretty awesome films.
This is one of those adaptations that can work, as others have said; it's nothing like DBE.
This along with Cowboy Bebop could very well become good films.

So Japan should stop producing anime then?

I just knew Hollywood wasn't going to give up on this. I wasn't to sure about this director at first but seeing how some of you folks said he is a manga fan, I have higher hopes now...but only if they do a complete rewrite of the original script and get rid of Zach Effron.

How does anything of that confirm movie as bad? Name change is only expected, because an american teenager with japanese surname and weird name would be ridiculous.


I've read the leaked script in full, the guy who wrote it missed the whole point of what makes Death Note....well, "Death Note".

When I read the script it was very clear that the writer had only seen the live-action films, and had never even dared laid a finger on the original manga or anime version.

The changes are far greater than just a bunch of simple name changes and no Ryuk. Instead of a suspenseful thriller of a cat and mouse game with a few horror elements, it was changed into full straight-up a horror flick. Even Light's...er, Luke's, personality was greatly changed as well. As Light...er, "Luke", no longer is some bored smart kid with a god complex who turns evil, instead we have some evil force making him do bad things.

I'm sure these changes where all done BECAUSE of Zach Effron playing the part of "Luke", all so he would be depicted more like some nice guy who got just got tangled up in everything. Leave a better impression on his preteen fangirls of you know what I mean... As I'm sure they wouldn't want to see him laughing like a mad, creepy, psychotic lunatic.

Oh, and even less L than there was in the first japanese live-action film.

As screwed up was the script was, i'll admit there where some bits here and there added in I actually liked, but the whole thing just wasn't the Death Note we all know and love, and I definitely want a rewrite (which i heard was going to happen after the script was leaked).



Oh, I still have the script, maybe if you people ask me real nicely...

No, i meant Japan to stop making movies from animes as well. Well, whoever wants to watch them, fine. I'm not interested in movies based on animes, so it's fine by me.

It could be WAAAAAAY worse. People always seem to forget The Fist of the North Star movie. I'm sorry but Hokuto Hyakurettsu Ken looks incredibly stupid in that movie. Just check it out for yourself. Just imagine a staple image of Shonen being butchered in live action. Yup.

Either way if the plot is completely off the wrong track, the fact that they have a good director means it won't be god awful. Also if you've already seen the series before, think of it as a new look into it. It'll be surprising for sure.

Change is bad.
Fans don't want something new.
They want the same shit shoveled and recycled over and over and over again.

Like Call of Duty.

Is the Zac Efron as Kira thing true. dude, once you're in a shitty teen musical, no one can take you seriously. I really hope this goes well, because honestly in japanese live-action movie sucked. excpet the guy who played L did a good job (forgot his name :P)

If they give this movie a fairy-tale ending then the threatre's going up in flames. *ahem* sorry. but I hate those "Everything went better than expected!" ends.

i'm not sure how i feel about this movie...while many of you have posted reassurance that the death note franchise is in good hands with this director & producers, something deep down is telling me that i'm in for an abomination.

however, i have heard that robert pattinson would be the one to play as L. i'm not sure of any truth behind this rumor though...

Geez, why does Hollywood have to rape everything? Now I'm really mad if this is actually true.

Let's look at the bright side... If he succeeds in making an adequate Death Note live action maybe other people will start making movies from anime that aren't like DBZ, or (although not classified as an anime), Avatar: The Last Airbender. Those were just horrendous. Atleast he's an anime/manga fan

People already started making movies from animes and they don't need to wait for the DN movie to succeed to make money.

I don't know why people can't simply be allowed to enjoy the current live action films avaliable?
They were only mad a few years back, those who watched were obviously able to read and watch at once, why does it have to be simplified further? Even the old tacky voiced movie dubs are that bit more respectful; atleast we get to apreciate a range of different actors and the director and staff's hard work.

Movie will fail.

But still,
ZAC EFRON IS KIRA.


Zack Efron!
I was hoping they had moved on from him. :(
They were alledgedly going to cast that Ashley Tisdale as Misa.
I was actually hoping the idea would get put off, yet Disney actors, it just adds insult to injury.

I just hope they make this take place in the US instead of in Japan. We do not need a carbon copy of a live action movie that already exists.
