Death Note

Death Note ★★½

Has some noteworthy elements such as William Dafoe, his characters visuals (but only when blurred out), camerawork and it's pacing. But there's also so many problems too. It all feels so rushed even though it flys by and I don't care for our main characters, Nat Wolf played his part way too exaggerated and ridiculous. Lakeith Stanfeild is a great actor but he's poorly miscasted here. The story is about Japanese people...and there's no Asian people in it...not good. It doesn't quite have a tone that works, I don't know whether I should be laughing at things or not. I've seen worse, hell I've seen worse from Adam Wingard, but this is still a pretty underwhelaming flick.
