SchmoesKnow – 2.5/5

IGN – 7/10 – “A flawed take on the beloved manga. Netflix’s live-action Death Note movie is a very condensed take on the manga with two unsatisfying lead performances.”

The film’s synopsis reads:

Light Turner, a bright student, stumbles across a mystical notebook that has the power to kill any person whose name he writes in it. Light decides to launch a secret crusade to rid the streets of criminals. Soon, the student-turned-vigilante finds himself pursued by a famous detective known only by the alias L.

Death Note hits Netflix on 25 August.
