Movie Info

Fathom Events and GKIDS bring, MFKZ, the collaboration of French comic artist Guillaume "Run" Renard and ultra-hip Japanese animation house Studio 4C (Tekkonkinkreet, Genius Party and Mind Game), comes to select movie theatres for an exclusive premiere event on October 11 and 16. The film centers on young Angelino and his skull-and-flame pal Vinz, who live in a seedy tenement in an LA-inspired dystopian metropolis -- a burnt-out, gang and cockroach-ridden neo-urban hell. Following a scooter accident Angelino starts experiencing migraines and strange hallucinations, as well as fits of rage-inspired superpowers, as he slowly awakens to the truth of his origins: he is half-human and half-Macho, a supernatural alien race that is bent on taking over the planet. The film will feature the voices of Michael Chiklis (The Shield), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Jorge Gutierrez (The Book of Life,), Dascha Polanco (Orange is the New Black), RZA, Vince Staples, and Danny Trejo (Machete). Contains adult content, viewer discretion advised.

Critic Reviews for MFKZ

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3)

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.

Oct 11, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Nov 1, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Ultraviolent dystopian anime offers style over substance.

Oct 19, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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.
