«I beginning to fear for you mentally. Very well done
«What a movie! Manny is positively scary, but you hit the perfect balance between scary and funny! I loved details like the way Manny glances at girls as they pass by, and his various facial expressions. It would be interesting to see how the movie feels like from closer to the doc's point of view. The cop bit was well done. Strange how I still held my breath for Manny, as ruthless unforgivable criminal as he was. The ending felt weird at the first viewing, but now I wonder how else it could have ended. I liked the way you treated it. »
«That was pretty cool! Manny is a fun character, and the way you portrayed him was very well done. If I had one criticism of him, it was the way he panicked when the cop arrived. It didn't seem right, for someone so cold and calculating. But then again, he was taken off guard. So maybe...
The little nuances you put into the characters made this entertaining to watch (such as Manny checking out the chicks walking past as he talked... brilliant). And, of course, the story itself was cool, and dark and oddly funny (well, not odd at all, really. It helped contrast the seriousness of it... if that makes sense?)
Excellent work, Mefune.»
«Great job Mefune, nice pacing and good dialogue. The acting was excellent by you and Jorge, totally believable. In places it did seem that for Manny you were drifting slightly into one of your comedy voices, but I guess he is that kind of character, you're not sure whether you can take him seriously or not. In a way he was like Heath Ledger's joker, in that he was kind of funny, but in a very dark way, like you know you shouldn't laugh but you do anyway. Great job toying with my mind Mefune, this was a very intriguing piece. The ending was excellent too, totally unexpected. Nice theme of karma going on. I thought the big standout was the facial expressions, they were very well done. The visuals were ok, didn't really look dark enough to fit the mood for me but that's more personal preference. Overall great job

«Great work Johnny! That was one dark movie, Started out so normal then went totally insane, with us hoping that this madman would be stopped! I actually found my hands sweating, it was that tense, yet so simple, Two guys on a park bench. Some great direction and some nice writing in here too. Plus some great voice acting from you Johnny. Manny was one sinister mutha'! Nice work from Jorge too! This was a very dark film which had hints of humor you couldn't help smiling about, Dark humor is a favorite of mine Wonderful work here, film on buddy!

«One thing I always look forward to in your films is your execution and Hard Requitals is a fine example of just that.
The dialogue was tremendously dark yet funny. Dark Humour anyone? you certainly have it in spades! I like the advanced no b.s playing around progression of this story, told to perfection with some excellent dialogue.
The use of free-cam and animations were used exquisitely portray emotions and discomfort.
The end was quite unexpected but highly fitting. He had another choice then and there and his expression before making the choice justified his conclusions lol. Karma's a b*tch!
Overall, I found this to be highly enjoyable, wonderously sick (my kind of humour) and nuketastically executed!!
Until the next time my friend..
Nuke Well in Karma!!!»

«An absolutely amazing piece, dark, humorous, chilling, and quite unpredictable. The sound design put just the right amount of tention and atmosphere. The editing was superb, flowing with just the right amount of direction that kept me on the edge of my seat..then the cat jumped on my lap and i spilled my coffee.....that was painfull.
Another top notch production my friend, you never cease to amaze me.»
«Well written and executed film, great facial expressions and editing. I thought the acting was fine too but i would have liked to hear a "new" character voice developed for the role Manny. He reminded of a character that i've heard you play before, the glib and funny guy.
This guy's more twisted than that guy..
A quality piece of work like you always do, very entertaining!
«Wow. I think the fact that you walk out of this feeling disturbed is a true example to the fantastic production values this film has.
The acting was very well recorded, acted, mixed and supported by fantastic facial animations. It brought it to a very high level of realism (as much as any cartoon can) that isn't seen with a lot of productions.
A great film - a dark, nearly terrifying tale. But superb nonetheless. I eagerly await the next production from Mefune Akira. »
