MFKZ is the kind of barely-there fantasy that disappears from your memory even while you're watching it.
"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.
The visual style and narrative are imaginative, and there's enough social commentary to give this silly caper some weight.
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.
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.
The directors tend to prize gore and bedlam over tension and suspense, which grows wearisome.
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.
Enjoyment will depend on a tolerance for that randomness teenagers apparently find hilarious.
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.
A punky joyride, if oppressively macho.
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.
