"I think it's very sad, actually. I only mention it, because that would make you over 18. If you were to beat me up, which I'm sure you could, it would be child abuse". lol what? The only good thing that came out of this disaster is people are now remembering how awesome the original was. Every issue I had with this film has already been said by many, so no point repeating things you heard countless times by now.

Adam Wingard's take on the popular anime/mange of the same name is a bit of a one-note Death Note, but it's not without merit. The casting is solid, the soundtrack is pretty great and the story, while quite truncated, is still decent. Still, while I wasn't the biggest fan of the anime series, that's probably where you should start, though if you're already familiar with the material, the movie is a nice supplement.
