All Critics (20) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (5)

  • In the anime Tekkonkinkreet, two orphans of life's storms sail through the air like birds, like superheroes, like Jackie Chan.

    July 13, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • Somewhat resembles Paprika, another recent piece of Japanimation. But director Michael Arias, a Tokyo-based American, doesn't fuse his striking graphics to a story anywhere near as satisfying.

    July 13, 2007 | Rating: 2/4
  • The dazzlingly intricate backgrounds are a marvel, and though the jam-packed story occasionally trips over its own sentimentality, it quickly rights itself every time.

    July 13, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Tekkonkinkreet, for all its architecturally grimy virtuosity and flourishes of anime cool, remains the story of a damaged city that can still point to one mighty example of brotherly love.

    July 12, 2007 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Far less cartoonish than, say Pirates of the Caribbean 3. And its characters are the most poignant, and convincingly human, of the summer.

    July 12, 2007 | Rating: 3/4

  • By the end of this phantasmagorical journey, I was as wrapped up in the precarious fate of these two wounded kids and the honorable yakuza warlords of Treasure Town as I've been in any film all year.

Audience Reviews for Tekkonkinkreet (Tekkon kinkurîto)

  • Oct 08, 2015
    Tekkon Kinkreet is stunning and easily the best animated movie (I've seen) in years. It has the vibrancy and surrealism of Paprika, the emotional intensity and violence of Evangelion, with the urban action sequences and complex cityscapes of Akira. Of course it is not a simple mish-mash but has a character all its own and emphasizes on the need to have a place called home and people that are family.

    A entertaing enough anime animation, as usuall, the look always has something, and under it all a interesting enough story although it dident fully grab me, and not fully sucessful in what what was happening, but there are entertaining moments to enjoy.

    This is the sort of movie that I would normally love, but the story is not there. The animation, is of course, fantastic, beautiful, and original. I may be unfair to this movie though, as I couldn't get past 70 minutes in. The plot was just plain blah and I didn't have that instant interest in Black and White, whereas the best scifi animes of this sort are only good if you care about the characters, otherwise it's just a pretty pictures romp, and that's all I saw here. Granted, many people think I overpraise Metropolis (2001) and underpraise the first Ghost in the Shell, so I'm not a good barometer, as when it gets to my fave genres, that's where I'm the most picky, and I couldn't pick out anything about this movie that made me *love* it or even want to watch it again.

    I rewatched this movie again, I just can't believe how good it is. Not only is it visually stunning, it is fast, dynamic and has depth. The connection between the two brothers (who are strays, and orphans) is touching and powerful. I already said too much, just see it. <div style="width:405px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/movie/tekon-kinkurito/photos?p=11458911"><img src="http://content9.flixster.com/photo/11/45/89/11458911_ori.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com">
