Film #33: Death Note

A western adaptation of the popular Manga book. Write a name and how they'll die into the book and it'll happen. The book lands in the lap of a school kid who quickly uses it to remove a bully and then befriends one of the cheerleaders. In pursuit of them is a chap who's name isn't known to anyone so can't be killed by the kid with the book.

The deaths are over the top gory, with bodies exploding on impact. I enjoyed it but didn't immediately recognise Margaret Qualley who plays the cheerleader, Mia. She's also the amazing dancer in the Kenzo advert, but she looks much older in that; it must be the dress.
