Mutafukaz is a joint production of France and Japan adapting the comic strip series (bande dessinée) of the same name by Guillaume Renard, also known as Run. The comic strip was first published in 2006 and ran until the release of its final chapter in 2015. The film was in production for seven years, with Ankama publicly announcing the project in 2011 and first screening it at the 2017 Annecy International Animated Film Festival.

Do you know what the best anime movie of the last couple years is? I'll give you a hint: it's nothing by Makoto Shinkai, the Tyler Perry of anime. It's probably this one.

Let's talk about anime movies for a second. There are three kinds of original anime movies:

A. ghibli
B. Over-produced trashy teen romances for the lowest common denominator that could've been live action
C. The rare, totally stand-alone anime film that dares to take full advantage of the medium and delivers art, animation and story concepts that would've never been possible in a TV series format.

This movie, MFKZ, is solidly in group C. This read more

This is a rare opportunity of a life time when you see a film releasing world wide or i mean all theaters in the US, such as imax etc. Overall shout out to gkids who distributed this film. when it to animation and character design in this film which first started from a comic series that i should probably check out but anyways the way 4c studio adapted so well and so beautiful i was blown away plus this contains veteran animator also other in-between animator as well. Watch the English version. its more proper to the story it take place

This is my first review, so please don't kill me for any mistakes... ;)

Interesting that a quite niche-anime like Mutafukaz gets a two-days cinema screening in Germany thanks to Peppermint. There were just around 20 people in the movie when I was watching it, so financially it may not have been that good for the cinema. Still for me it was worth it.

Story (3/10):
For me, the only bad thing about the movie was the story. Without doing any spoilers, it's just senseless and hilarious, especially in the second half of the movie. It fits to the movie in general, but some things just happen randomly read more

Before considering watching this movie, please note that it is rated R - 17+ and has a lot of violence and profanity. In my opinion, it should be 15+.

Hello reader, my name is Vaughn Hart. My review has no spoilers and doesn't involve deeper meaning/symbolism. This is a pure review of what I think about the movie. Please read the movie synopsis before continuing. I'll refer to the movie name Mutafukaz as MFKZ throughout the review. (Note: I rate anime/movies from 1-5 instead of 1-10, which means 8/10 is the second-best rating I give.)

Story: 10/10
In MFKZ there is only 1 story, that's the main story. read more
