Terrific film...great atmosphere with a neat twist ending. You never really know who to root for. The only downside is I find some actors cast as the criminals overacted a tad.

Highly disagree with astrocreep when it comes to L's casting.

Not as good as the anime but the casting for L is excellent. Twists and storyline changes made just for the movie made it exciting as you were not sure what was going to happen.

I find the movie watchable but several 13-year old girls watched it in a sleep-over and obviously liked it.

Not particularly as visually exciting as the anime. The story was changed slightly, and characters were added, but does not take away too much from the original storyline. Viz's dub work on this is very much the same as their anime dub, which is enjoyable (although Brad Swaile's Light is much better in the anime). Overall if you have not seen or read the original Death Note in a long time, this movie will be quite enjoyable and suspenseful. But if you have seen the original work recently prior to watching this, you'll probably prefer the original formats.

A truly thrilling work for adult audiences! One of my favorites. The ending comes as little surprise. Excellent work!

awsome movie and the second one is great too, and it should have been how death note ended not with near winning but with light and L winning, the real Kira is notebook. the orginal story is useless and not realistic, i prefer this movies RIP light, L, Watari.

I believe Kenichi's performance in this movie was fantastic. But it is always best to read the manga or book before venturing towards movie adaptations.

While I recommend reading the manga or watching the anime first to get the full Death Note experience and storyline (they changed a lot of the original story in the movie), this movie is still really well done and I totally recommend seeing it. :)
