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

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.

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

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.

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.
