Well it seems like ages ago that Vegito advised me to watch the death note anime, and I enjoyed it for the most part. I finally got around to watching the first live action movie and I have to say I'm impressed. As unbelievable as the concept is, it works really well in a live action film. I was completely suprised but it seemed to have the essence of what I liked about the anime aswell as adding some twists of its own. Obviously its not without its flaws, Ryuk looks like a ps1 charcter most of the time and some of the heart attacks look a little well.... hammy. I'll probably watch the sequel soon. What are everyones thoughts on this? did it live up to your expectations? or do you feel that something was lost in the adaptation? Also how does the sequel fair to this one?
