Hahhaa, I just saw this and knew you'd be here already. :wink:

Funny thing on the movies is they were a lot tighter than the anime, and had a different ending. Be interesting to see how this turns out.

Pretty much the only similarities the American movie had to the story was the presence of a Death Note, a Death God and characters called L and Light.
Though I was curious what people would think of it if they wren't familiar with the source material or other adaptations.
So was talking to someone at work and he enjoyed it for what it was, knowing nothing of it before watching.

So pretty much as expected for a "Hollywood" adaptation. :D

Especially for one that was bounced back and forth until someone just said "Right, we'll make somthing with this just to shut people up".
Akira will probably go the same way
