If you enjoyed the original Death Note series, you will most definitely enjoy Death Note R. It is essentially a compressed version of the first half of the series before Near and Mello are introduced. The movie's intro and ending have been changed from the original show to give the movie a sense of originality. If you have not seen the Death Note show, I recommend watching it first, or else some scenes might not make sense because a lot of content had to be removed to keep the movie under 10 hours. All in all, Death Note R is nothing new, but still an extremely well done adaptation of the original Death Note that I highly recommend any fan to watch.
