My only problem with Death Note is the amount of stuff in Death Note that's not awesome - the leaps in logic, the annoying characters, the plot aspects which distract from the awesomeness of what I see as the original engaging points, the plot tangents and characters that aren't developed enough for me to grow to care about them (the main reason I hated Love, Actually). For me, the best parts of Death Note are - (1) L - combination of lonely, intellectually-separated, awkward cuteyball cum ruthless intellectual genius (2) Ryuk and his insistent neutrality (3) How possession of the Death Note turns Light from ordinary genius making his way through University, to a guy who just wants to make the world a better place, to megalomaniacal would-be God (4) the nemesis relationship between L and Light, especially as they could be best friends, so like Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty or something. Woof. The more they are able to maintain focus on these aspects, while throwing in the occasional character-driven humor that is typical of the manga and incredibly charming, the better I like Death Note. Kudos to Takeshi Kaga and his character of Inspector Yagami, a dashing swashbuckler of a lawman and moral compass, and good use of the character of Takada. Overall this is a fine condensation of the Death Note series. Changes I would make - L must live forever and possibly be my boyfriend. :-P The CGI shinigami are freaking awesome. I loved the use of music in this flick. The final confrontation is exciting and chilling, and L's fate is just heartbreaking.

Matthew C (kr) wrote: Clint Eastwood superbly visualizes the warm, Southern gothic setting, complete with, fascinating, oddball local color. Unfortunately, these elements, as entertaining as they are, can only take the film so far.The actors are all generally strong, though Kevin Spacey often straddles the line of believability in realizing his decidedly over-the-top, rich southern gentleman. Even more of an issue, however, is the awkward manner in which tonal and genre shifts occur: grim murder mystery to absurd comedy of manners to "Doc Holiday-esque" fish-out-of-water to courtroom drama. It's all too muddled and clumsily handled. There's even a pointless romantic plot with the protagonist that the audience has no use for, thrown in for good measure. Ultimately, Clint could save 35 minutes without this distraction and make this a tighter, two-hour jaunt.Entertaining atmosphere and leads, but script and director need to try harder to reign in the jumble of tones. It seems as though the filmmakers in question are going for the whole "Hey! Look at this wackiness!! Can you believe this is all based on true events??" [The book on which this movie is based makes use of a real court case]

Stephen T (br) wrote: There is something about British films produced during the war, which they all share: survival. Especially, those produced prior to American involvement in 1941-42. There is a strain of desperation against a relentless Nazi war machine. As a result, most Nazis portrayed in films like A Night Train to Munich or even The Lady Vanishes (1938, Alfred Hitchcock) are machine-like or robotic in their determination to control and defeat England. Yet they lack the cleverness or wit to successfully grasp the feisty British. Enter the cartoonish Nazi villains portrayed in A Night Train to Munich, they are easily outsmarted by the British. Part propaganda, part marketing; the charming Rex Harrison and lovely Margret Lockwood (portraying a wealthy Czech) clash with the Nazi stooges led by Paul Henried (of Casablanca fame). Henried is wooden, Harrison annoying, and only Lockwood brings beauty, brains, and Britishness to an impossibly difficult situation (a.k.a. the plot). A spy film at its heart, director Carol Reed tried too hard to mimic his rival Alfred Hitchcock in themes and content; only later will Reed perfect his spy craft filmmaking in the 1940s with his masterpiece The Third Man (1949). Also, it's very hard to buy Harrison in the part he plays (you'll see). A slightly silly, but solid film produced at a critical period in history - World War II - a fact that cannot be overlooked as it adds the only real depth to the storyline. Recommended for fans of Rex Harrison, Carol Reed, and British cinema.
