Critic Reviews for Death Note (Desu nôto)
The combatants' mano-a-mano gamesmanship has such pulpy inventiveness that your inner fan-boy will most assuredly rejoice.
Towards the end things grow darker and more complex, leading to a satisfyingly emotive and unresolved finale and leaving the door wide for the inevitable and welcome sequel.
It's like Infernal Affairs/The Departed crossed with Devilman, Primal Fear and Drop Dead Fred. If that combination doesn't scream "Watch me!" to you, well, you're wrong.
If you love good story telling, an intricate plot, cute young Japanese stars, and a punky shinigami, you won't find a film better than Death Note... unless it's Death Note 2.
Audience Reviews for Death Note (Desu nôto)
Freaking excellent. Did not expect to enjoy this movie so much, and that ending. Wow!
Staying true to the original series in almost every single aspect, "Death Note," the live action film, succeeds both as a homage to it's source material and as a film on it's own. It's interesting, engaging, and all around fantastic, aside from the cheap direction, low-budget, and laughable effects, this film proves mesmerizing in the storytelling portion, and never let's up until it's perfect cliffhanger at the end. This film takes scenes of the original Anime show and almost replicates them, which was a very nice to see, but there are a few minor changes that bothered me, but all-in-all, I loved watching this film. The direction is basic, but the writing is great, the story is phenomenal, and the casting is almost perfect. The live-action version of "Death Note" is spot on!
