Bleach falls into the category of a hard-to-impossible anime series to adapt into a live-action movie, sporting a laundry list of potential pitfalls: the story's curtain between reality and an earthly spiritual realm, maximalist fight scenes, monstrous spirits, big ass swords, etc. Its late-night aura carried a bona fide swagger that matched the show's uncanny deftness in switching between frenetic and abusive action sequences to quirky slice-of-life humor, on top of its edgy, percussive soundtrack. Bleach automatically became the cool-kid anime for American audiences with cable replaced by Death Note after Bleach was pulled following its original wrap , in large part thanks to its emotional maturity and darker story arcs that appealed to an older crowd than the after-school titles on Cartoon Network. And like Death Note , its massive popularity -- Bleach has sold million single-issue copies worldwide, and it's one of the most-watched entry-level anime -- could have meant tons of disappointed fans if the live-action adaptation didn't deliver. The explanation of Bleach 's basic premise, especially and crucially for the uninitiated, is one of the movie's biggest victories over plenty of adaptations that have tried but failed to employ any straightforward world-building.
A young man comes to possess a supernatural notebook, the Death Note, that grants him the power to kill any person simply by writing down their name on the pages. He then decides to use the notebook to kill criminals and change the world, but an enigmatic detective attempts to track him down and end his reign of terror. Jason Bradford Chris B.

A motion picture content rating system is designated to classify films with regard to suitability for audiences in terms of issues such as sex, violence, substance abuse, profanity, impudence or other types of mature content. A particular issued rating can be called a certification , classification , certificate or rating. Most countries have some form of rating system, typically carrying age recommendations in an advisory or restrictive capacity ranging up to adulthood, and are often given in lieu of censorship. In some jurisdictions the legal obligation of administering the rating may be imposed on movie theaters. In countries such as Australia and Singapore, an official government body decides on ratings; in other countries, such as the United States, it is done by industry committees with little if any official government status. In most countries, however, films that are considered morally offensive have been censored, restricted, or banned. Even if the film rating system has no legal consequences, and a film has not explicitly been restricted or banned, there are usually laws forbidding certain films, or forbidding minors to view them.
