In Dark Meat City, a young man develops supernatural powers after an otherwise uneventful scooter accident.


  • Good visuals & art direction (+1)
  • Quirky story (+1/2)
  • Average expectations, largely met but not exceeded (+0)
  • As weird as French rap can be (-1/2)

I wanted to love this animation—someone at work had shown me an art book about it a few months back, and when I made the connection, I immediately wanted to see this movie. It turns out to be entertaining, but at some point I just got bored by the predictable story (despite its nice quirks) and checked out. It’s still largely enjoyable, but it won’t win any Oscars.

Score: 6/10
