Notes

  • The live-action film adaptation of Devilman was generally, critically and universally panned by both most movie reviewers and audiences as well as Devilman fans and Go Nagai's fans for its mostly bad acting, disjointed and confusing story, plot line and script, poor special effects, overuse of CGI, less faithfulness to the source material and the casting of various popular celebrities with no prior acting experience. In an online poll, it was ranked the 3rd worst live action film adaptation of an anime or manga.
