    » I recently watched Netflix's Death Note adaptation, officially released last Friday on the streaming site. Based on a famous Japanese manga series, the film revolves around a young man's twisted crusade for justice after having received a special notebook -- the titular death note -- that has the power to kill anyone whose name has been written in it, provided the writer knows their face. Fed up with the many injustices in the world, the young man -- named Light -- uses the note to kill bullies, criminals and even corrupt officials from around the world under the alter-ego Kira, earning a cult-like following from those who agree with his extreme brand of justice.

Although not offering as many movies and series in the US, the big draw to subscribing would be its original series The Grand Tour, hosted by ex-Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond. Amazon Prime Video is available on both iOS and Android platforms.
