Anime Japonés de Yasuomi Umetsu, que continua con el estilo de su anterior trabajo,Kite. Más que clasificación "R" es explicita. Acción y violencia con gráficos de primera. Retrato del lado más oscuro de Japón, Yakuzas, corrupción, asesinatos, terrorismo y hasta trata la pedofilia. Muy buena, pero
definitivamente solo para adultos. ^-^

Yasuomi Umetsu's animation for gun battles and action sequences are undeniably superior to any other animations. Unlike "Kite", Mezzo Forte's story is lighter, it's just an action-adventure by our three heroes. It's got the same feel as any other anime does, it's full of adventure and comedy. It's just a shame Yasuomi Umetsu had to put up a lot of unnecessary sex scenes again, totally irrelevant. In "Kite", it's understandable due to the nature of the story, while this one is just for show.

The ova's was awesome but the series could've had more OVAs but they stuck it down to episodes after the events in the ova series.

If you've ever seen Umetsu's 2 other anime movies (Kite and Kite Liberator) then you'll have a pretty good idea what Mezzo Forte is all about. The story concerns a trio of mercernaries with a female assassin Mikura that's hired to do a job and kidnap a nasty baseball team owner. However, the job goes wrong and they find out that he's been killed. The man's psychotic and dangerous daughter believing that her father is still alive seeks out Mikura and her 2 compatriots with her own brand of twisted violence.

Mezzo Forte is an interesting ultraviolent anime that's good enough to pass 55 mins of your time. The action is slick though a bit too far fetched at times such as Mikura kicking a man through a wall! The animation is pretty good too. Those that like Umetsu's other work will want to check this out.

They censored the sex scene? That's bullshit Netflix claims it "NR". There's 2:10 clip I found online that is awesome. Shame they cut it, but it is rather tangential. Good commercial for the tv show.

A funny, sexy, action flick that entertains the entire time. If sex turns you off then see the censored version because this movie has the most graphic sex scene I've ever seen in anime.

A simple and fun action film with gorgeously animated gun-fights and a number of colorful characters. Not deep in the slightest, but a fun popcorn-munching shoot-em-up.

Direction and Artistry is fine. The pacing is breakneck and the plot twists and turns are compelling but if anything this film was a far cry from reaching the mark. Namely the Characters are lost, and undeveloped. I've had problems remembering their names outside of just knowing their descriptions, and attitudes. There was no actual threat of loosing a favorite characters or ones life in jeopardy, which makes the general plot sink in the water. NOT SAFE FOR CHILDREN if you accidentally get the 'Uncut' version. To some way, the 'Uncut' scenes actually distract and confuse the viewers more for a senseless sex scene.

I thought the animation and action were top notch. However, if you prefer to do without the hentai-esque qualities, I highly recommend you check out the animated series. The pilot episode is a clean remake of this release.

Reminds me a lot of Snatch, only more ultraviolent and perverted. And of course, animated. The version I got cut out the explicit sex scene, but honestly, that's okay because having it in there would've probably just ruined the whole thing. Animation could've been better too, but that's okay.

This movie had potential, but fell through the cracks. To bad.
