    Ok.

    If you are a fan of the Manga or Anime, don't expect a close live action translation. The plot, tone, and theme are very different here. That being said, I really liked this movie. The acting is top notch. Tatsuya Fujiwara is a wonderful Light Yagami, and I can't say enough about how perfect Ken'ichi Matsuyama is in the role of L. The plot falls flat, but the performances are so good, you can't help but watch it over and over. Death Note is best Manga/Anime I have seen in a very long time. It's a difficult story to translate, but they did well enough. This isn't a good starting point into the Death Note world, but is an interesting alternate take for fans of the manga and anime.

    Fan or not, worth watching

    Ive seen a few episodes on adult swim but never paid much attention to it. went with a friend to a limited run of the feature film and was surprised to discover I really enjoyed this film. glad to see its coming out in the US and hopefully they will follow it up with the sequel being released here in the US also
