A high school student named Light Turner discovers a mysterious notebook that has the power to kill anyone whose name is written within its pages, and launches a secret crusade to rid the world of criminals.
(at around 46 mins) This film strays from the anime in where Light actually has people killed in a more creative manner when using the Death Note. However, one of his victims in the film, an FBI agent, dies by a simple case of a heart attack, an homage to the anime where Light Yagami generally kills people with just a heart attack using the Death Note.
We can change the world.
(at around 38 mins) When Detective James Turner first meets L in his office to discuss the case of Kira, he is handed an ice cream cone before he sits down. The cone is in his hand untouched for the first few shots before it eventually disappears from his hand when he is handed case folders.
The closing credits are written in the same style as the Death Note instructions.
