MD Geist

A Parent's Guide to Anime
Rated: X

For Adult Audiences Only

Review by Don Kreipke:

Dark mood cyberpunk anime set amidst a high-tech but crumbling global society. One bare-top female in an attempted seduction scene. This sequence is totally overshadowed by the horrendously graphic violence: a veritable cornucopia of spurting blood, severed extremities, and exploding heads. Storyline and visuals can, at times, be confusing.

Additional review by Brian Kern:

MD Geist is one of the more graphically violent animes that I've been occasioned to see. I rented it due to the interesting looking cover, and wound up wholly disappointed.

The plot skips around, and is extremely dark. It all revolves around Geist, a sort of super-soldier who the Government attempted to do away with, now hell-bent on his own mission of revenge.

MD Geist really turned me off due to the raw level of explicit, graphic violence combined with a complete lack of moving plot. I mean, I like as much violence as the next three people, but I kind of like it in context.. MD Geist gave me none of those things. It doesn't even have the distinction of being so stupid that it's funny, a la Fist of the North Star.

There is nothing to this movie besides Geist roaming about tearing people down in bloody fashion, and generally acting like a robot. I can't truly recommend it to anyone any more than I could Ninja Ressurection. *shivers*


Tons of hideous graphic violence. Geist is a killer. He lets you know this fact. He enjoys it. You get to watch. B. K.
