MOZU - brief - two seasons
25 October 2014 | by (Cheung Chau) – See all my reviews

S01 - Furious J-drama, steeped in Noir. Endless cigarettes, rain soaked nights, mysteries, terrific villains. You prefer comedy, romance, superheroes, or teens, this ain't it. MOZU translates as shrike, as in the bird that impales its victims on spikes or barbs. In this case, the hit-man and his trusty icepick. While police investigate a terrorist bombing, they trespass into another agency's pursuit of a corporate assassin. Conspiracies surface, business and political treachery vie with flawed enforcement. Twists abound, and several characters step deeper into doomed territory. Scant light in MOZU. Good choice if you are the black-hearted type. Know thyself.

S02 - After the sheer carnage that was MOZU S01, one might assume few characters survived for a second season. This launched weeks after the first ended, so S02 was always in the cards. The three leads returned and picked up the loose ends left unresolved. More talky than S01, a pace below the pedal-to-the-metal action of S01. Nevertheless, investigators probe deeper into the conspiracies. The trail of absent family members are followed, as well as the truth of the dungeon of Omelas. As with the first season, the sound design in this is outstanding. From dark ambient to musique concrete. Also, lest Shrike fans lost heart, the icepick abides.
