Death Note (Desu nôto) Reviews

August 28, 2008
The combatants' mano-a-mano gamesmanship has such pulpy inventiveness that your inner fan-boy will most assuredly rejoice.

Fiendishly unusual, it's an offbeat time-waster that genre fans will definitely want to make a note of.

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.

An entertaining, creepy, and beautifully written horror film...

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.

In thinking about what I'd do with a Death Note... I'd probably write my own name in the notebook while watching this movie.

Inspired in places, it unfortunately plods for most of the run time.

while Death Note may boast what is in every sense a killer concept, it's rather blandly directed, repetitive, over-explained and overlong
