About MFKZ Blu-ray/DVD
From the creators of Batman: Gotham Knight, and The Animatrix and the animators who worked on the seminal sci-fi anime film, AKIRA, director Shojiro Nishimi brings you MKFZ, a flipped-out flick based on the graphic novel by Guillaume “Run” Renard.
The film centers on Angelino and his friend Vinz, who live in a seedy tenement in an LA-inspired dystopian metropolis – a burnt-out, gang and cockroach-ridden neo-urban hell. Angelino is just one of thousands of deadbeats living in Dark Meat City. But an otherwise unremarkable scooter accident caused by a beautiful, mysterious stranger is about to transform his life... into a waking nightmare! He starts seeing monstrous forms prowling around all over the city... Is Angelino losing his mind, or could an alien invasion really be happening?

Ratings & Reviews
Plot is iffy but everything else is good
The whole movie felt like it bit off a little much, with a lot going on, and by the end it leaves you with questions like “what happens next,” and ”why was that part included?” It can drag on in places and skim past pivotal scenes and info. So the plot can be a bit iffy, but what it does have going for it are the details. The backgrounds are quite nice to look at, but the character designs are hit or miss. The music ranges a bit from sci-fi dub step to Hispanic hip hop. The English dub is good, not much else to say about it. Overall, this movie has it’s ups and downs, but it’s still an interesting watch, even if it doesn’t end on a solid note.
Sloppy, confusing fun. Worth a watch at least
The plot honestly has next to zero coherency. It introduces a dozen different ideas and doesn’t follow up on much of any of it. However, visually this movie is gorgeous. The sound and voice work is great. A fun watch for sure, but you should definitely not expect anything deep here.
If you want a fun movie, it’s a good choice. If you want story, or thought provoking concepts, this isn’t really your movie (unless the thoughts are about what random unfinished idea you just saw was supposed to mean).
