MFKZ Reviews

August 14, 2020
The visuals are eye-catching and the action enjoyably nasty, but there's absolutely nothing of substance behind it all.
February 25, 2019
Nothing makes sense.
December 20, 2018
The whole thing feels as if it's trying too hard to be edgy without having anything meaningful to say.
November 20, 2018
Regardless of what you think of the actual substance of the movie, MFKZ can be stunning to watch.

Cue ultraviolence, gang stereotypes, and a bucketload of plots that never really go anywhere... MFKZ is about as subtle as a house brick.

Ultraviolent dystopian anime offers style over substance.
October 15, 2018
MFKZ leaves so much to be desired and not enough of an impression to say anything about it. As bad as this movie is, it's so bland and ugly to look at that there's no reason to get mad at it.
October 12, 2018
MFKZ is the kind of barely-there fantasy that disappears from your memory even while you're watching it.
October 12, 2018
The directors tend to prize gore and bedlam over tension and suspense, which grows wearisome.
October 11, 2018
MFKZ is a labor of perseverance, and it shows. While it flares up before fizzling out in its final moments, the view is admittedly entertaining and worth witnessing if only to relish in the thrill of its visual excess.

"MFKZ" is obviously modeled on Katsuhiro Ôtomo's "Akira" and Taiyô Matsumoto's "Tekkonkinkreet," but it lacks the gritty brilliance of the former and the underdog poignancy of the latter.
October 10, 2018
A punky joyride, if oppressively macho.
October 10, 2018
Enjoyment will depend on a tolerance for that randomness teenagers apparently find hilarious.
October 10, 2018
If all this sounds delirious, it absolutely is, but that's part of the film's charm, at least for most of its running time.
October 7, 2018
The bulk of MFKZ is composed of chases and shoot-outs that, despite their chaotic energy, drive the plot forward at the most plodding pace.

With its anarchic attitude plastered across every delightfully detailed frame, Mutafukaz proves a French-Japanese animation treat.
October 19, 2017
The visual style and narrative are imaginative, and there's enough social commentary to give this silly caper some weight.
September 29, 2017
For every silly or sexist misstep, there's always a Shakespeare-quoting gangster round the next corner to slap a grin right back on your face. Mutafukaz is bound to be the coolest animation you'll see this year.
