I like the anime more but it's nice to see another take on the story., 13 June 2008
Author: timb75 from United States

This film has it's flaws. What I liked most about this film is that it gave you a different ending then the anime. The beginning of this film follows the anime pretty well minus some action, and some characters and their sexes were changed. What bugged me though was how careless Light was. He seemed so much more insane yet dumber then in the anime. Honestly the story could of been much better then it was but still it was an interesting take on the story. The acting wasn't very good. The only believable characters in comparison to the anime were Mr. Yagami and L. L was a real joy to watch in live action. If all else see this movie just to see him and how eccentric he really is. So if you like seeing all angles of a story then this is a good movie to see. The different ending makes it worth watching.
