Sci-fi movies on Netflix: MFKZ (2017)

Science fiction allows creators to do things most fans can’t even imagine, and sometimes live-action can’t always get the job done, leaving room to take the animated approach allowing for all kinds of adventures to go down. MFKZ is one of the most criminally underrated animation masterpieces available on Netflix that subscribers have slept on nor far too long. Based on the comic series and short film of the same name, the 2017 feature includes top-notch vocal performances from Giancarlo Esposito, Danny Trejo, Vincent Staples, Michael Chiklis, and RZA.

MFKZ centers on just one of the thousands of deadbeats living in Dark Meat City named Angelino. He has a mysterious past and no family to speak of except for his flame headed friend Vinz, his countless pet cockroaches, and his friend Willy. But one day, he gets in a scooter accident that turns his world upside down. He begins to see monstrous shadows next to certain people, and then strange men in black begin to follow him. He also starts to realize there is a fire burning inside of him that makes him a force to eye reckoned with that unknown forces are looking to capture and control. This amazing adult animated sci-fi endeavor has plenty of brilliant visuals and stunning action sequences all wrapped up in a modestly timed out narrative that would make an ideal choice for any Netflix subscriber looking for a solid option on movie night.
