BKNJ Review: Death Note

August 25, 2017

What Netflix lacks in choices, it makes up for in creative content.  Death Note is another, in a long line of trail-blazing Netflix Originals.  If you are a fan of monsters, gory death, love stories and Williem Dafoe, Death Note has what you need. 

 

Dislikes first, the quirky, advanced, Antifa-looking cop-hero, was pretty socially-awkward.  I guess that makes sense. 

 

Death Note was a swing for the fence, and it did not slow down when it came to outrageous plot-developments, characters (one in particular) and societal undertones.  The love-story between the main characters might have been secondary, but it delivers on an emotional level.

 

The film was scored fantastically, helping the viewer along on the ride through crazy-town.  While Death Note is pretty out there, it had a healthy mix of humor, drama, blood and story-arc.  

 

Overall: Must Watch - Possible date-night movie, if your sig other has gothic tendencies.
