What went wrong in the film?
This is a part that could cover the entire movie, from the original plot to the use of the characters, remember what happened with this adaptation of Death Note.
The characters: From the beginning the criticism of the cast did not take long, from changing all their Japanese origins to changing the enigmatic detective "L", the stars simply did not meet their characters, except Willian Dafoe, who voted the God of death Ryuk.
The argument: What is the biggest problem of changing ethnicity to the characters? The characters must set or "make American"; This involved several problems, from changing names in Misa, for Mia, to eliminating the role of the mother and the sister of Light.
Light Yagami (O Turner): A big debate between fans of anime and manga is what kind of character takes the series, Light, L, Near or Mello? The main characters of the manga, for much Light is the most important key of such work as the Death Note, and although analyzing the character would take a long time, we can reduce it to someone intelligent, cold and methodical, three elements that are not part of Alex Wolf's interpretation.
