Every issue I had with this film has already been said by many, so no point repeating things you heard countless times by now.

Only this wasn’t without consequences and individuals here also died in gruesome circumstances. “Death note” is again a variation on the subject. Here it’s the student Light Turner (Nat Wolff) who gets a mysterious notebook thrown into his lap. Whose name is written in it, is doomed to die. And this notebook is accompanied by Ryuk. A kind of hedgehog-like God of death who passes on the notebook if necessary and ensu...
