This film strays from the anime in where Light actually has people killed in a more creative manner when using the Death Note. However, one of his victims in the film, an FBI agent, dies by a simple case of a heart attack, an homage to the anime where Light Yagami generally kills people with just a heart attack using the Death Note.

Light successfully uses the Death Note on Watari despite not knowing his real name; only his alias.
And that's working for the Rules of the Death Note. Rule 2 (for this adaptation) says clearly, the Face of the Person has to be in the writers mind, when the Name of the Person is written in. In Wataris case, this fulfills the rule given, as Watari is this persons used name, even if it is an Alias. It would also work, if the writer would insert CHER or MADONNA, because these names are used in real life instead of their birth given names. On the other side, it wouldn't work with L, even when Light knows his face, because L is only one letter and therefore not a complete usable name and won't pass Rule No. 2. 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.
