  • Good annimations. Story "meh"
    Animation were real good. Story was a bit underwhelming. But overall I enjoyed myself. Would have been nice to have a two part story with a bit more developpement. No sure about the sentient robots I also feel like we have enough flash backs in normal anime, I would have preferred less of those for a 1 hour 20 min movie. Or if you wanna do it like this, don't end it there. I wanna se more of ...

  • Highest AFTMR ever!!
    Boasts the highest number of quality anime face to minute ratios (AFTMR) on the market. Name an anime with more quality anime faces than Blackfox. You can't because there isn't one. Blackfox is the best and anyone who disagrees is uncultured and doesn't appreciate the highest form of all art cute endearing anime faces.

  • Swing and a miss....
    For starters, the animation is exquisite, character design, motion, everything is top tier. Sadly that really doesn't count for much, and is the only thing that earns this a second star. Interesting opening, followed by a stereotypical, preachy, utterly predictable story manufactured to make money.

  • Great animation production; pretty mediocre story-line
    Not going to lie; I first thought this was an introduction to a whole; 12 episode animated series. So watching through the movie I was immediately pulled in with the smooth animation and it definitely shows the production they put into this film...this was the only thing going for in this film

    Now going into the movie plot of the story; it's the basic 'family is killed by the antagonist group ...

  • A good story told too fast
    The story here is very good, and sets up for a continuation as a franchise or universe of films, but it overall felt rushed. If the movie had another hour of run-time to tell the same story it would feel so much better. The pacing feels off from early on, with a hard and fast intro into a slower movie that somehow moves too fast. Characters are introduced already having established dynamics ...

    So very lacking in so many different ways
    This film has amazing artwork! Probably the only reason why it's 2 stars and not 1. Everything else was lacking. There was no character development, no depth to the plot. Everything is predictable. There was a huge lack of emotion throughout the entire thing. When it comes to the fight's it's just "Oh. They're fighting now." Nothing that engages us into the fight...

    Could've been good, but there's wasted potential.
    Overall, it's just meh. The production value is high, but the story and writing make it difficult to take seriously.

    In general the anime is okay. There's an actual story, which is nice given the amount of crap there is nowadays. The animation quality / choreography of fights is pretty superb.

    However, here are my issues with the movie, which in my opinion reduced its overall ...

    Where's the Character Development?
    I'm with reviewer Mericks on this one, at least as concerns the characters.

    Not enough time is given for any of the main characters in this film to develop. See the nice film poster off on the side, showing those nice young ladies? Yeah, all of those nice young ladies are one dimensional. One is an avenger, one is messed in the head, and one is almost obscenely nice. That's about the gist of ...

    A Fun Super Hero Orign Flick
    Blackfox is, at it's core, a super hero origin story that takes a lot of queues from western comics as well as other anime. That being said, there isn't a whole lot here that will surprise you and the story beats are overall pretty predictable. So if you came here for any deep philosophy or amazing twists, then you may want to head elsewhere. What it does have, however, is action. Lots of action. ...

    Overall good movie. Though fell rather short.
    The animation itself looks fantastic with a very interesting colour palette.

    Though the main story I would've liked to be longer. I felt like the movie became interesting was at the 1:30 hour mark, because that's how long it took to present the few characters that is in this movie and the problem that leads the main protagonist to act.
    The very plot in itself was pretty interesting, so it ...
