Before Detective James Turner meets L in person, he interacts with him first on a computer screen interface which is simply the letter L. This is an homage to the anime where L as a character is not physically seen in person for several episodes and until then, is only seen as a disembodied voice on a computer screen interface with just the letter L.

When Light first writes in the Death Note (about 10 minutes in), Ryuk hands him a pen and you hear the distinctive click of a retractable roller-ball pen. Cut to Light writing Kenny's name and hes using a fibretip fine-liner. Then when Light is writing the 'How' hes using a roller-ball again. See more »

I have never felt compelled to write any reviews but I felt that I needed to say something for this movie.
I normally like Netflix TV shows but movies lately have been really sub- par with this one being the worst I've seen from them.
This is a total waste of time and this movie should have never been made, it's an insult to the original Death Note (Desu Nōto). The plot was totally ruined since it was changed from the original, yeah they kept the premise but they decided it was a good idea to mix it up with stupid teen drama/relationship and a bunch of other nonsensical BS.
Go watch Desu Nōto instead if you haven't or if you have then watch it again!
