During the film's opening, one of the cheerleaders can be seen wearing blond hair long with two small pigtails either side. This is a homage to the original manga/anime design of Misa Amane (changed in the film to a brunette named Mia Sutton). See more »
When Light first writes in the Death Note (about 10 minutes in), Ryuk hands him a pen and you hear the distinctive click of a retractable roller-ball pen. Cut to Light writing Kenny's name and hes using a fibretip fine-liner. Then when Light is writing the 'How' hes using a roller-ball again. See more »
Okay, relax, Light. You're asleep. You're asleep and you're... dreaming of some 8-foot tall demon-looking motherfucker.
Ohhh, yes! A dream! I like that. Dreams are places you can have fun, right? It's all in your mind, so why not enjoy it?

I have never felt compelled to write any reviews but I felt that I needed to say something for this movie.
I normally like Netflix TV shows but movies lately have been really sub- par with this one being the worst I've seen from them.
This is a total waste of time and this movie should have never been made, it's an insult to the original Death Note (Desu Nōto). The plot was totally ruined since it was changed from the original, yeah they kept the premise but they decided it was a good idea to mix it up with stupid teen drama/relationship and a bunch of other nonsensical BS.
Go watch Desu Nōto instead if you haven't or if you have then watch it again!
