Adam Wingard read the "Death Note" manga comic to find a way to translate the story to an American environment: "Death Note is such a Japanese thing. It became about what do these themes mean to modern day America, and how does that affect how we tell the story. What are the things that people chalk up to conspiracy theories? What kind of weird underground programs does the government have? How do those work in the world of Death Note?" See more »
L reasons that Kira is in Seattle because only that city saw the broadcast of the hostage situation. However, this reasoning ignores that the broadcast was also streamed online, as this is how Light and Mia found it, where anyone could have watched. See more »

I don't suggest you watch the movie if you are a huge fan of Death Note, because it will ruin the whole thing. The actors and actresses were terrible and just everything was a big disappointment. The movie had almost nothing to do with the anime. If you have never heard of Death Note before, watch the anime first and if you are curious to watch the movie, go ahead..But as I said before, you will be disappointed.
