An action comedy about a sharp shooter from the S.W.A.T team (SDU) in Hong Kong who gets fired for failing to show up in time for a hostage mission because he was womanizing at a local disco. Out of a job, he meets a beautiful wandering girl, at his friend's pub and takes her in not knowing she is the daughter of a triad boss. She is hunted and Mr. Mumble becomes her bodyguard. At first, she is disgusted with the fact that Mumble was always trying to get into the sack with her. But when danger arises, Mumble utilizes his special skills to serve and protect. At the end, does Mumble get his woman?
The only problem I have is that I think Kaori (or her expy) could’ve been done a bit better and could’ve fit better into the story, but aside from that it’s a pretty faithful story that feels like it could fit right into the anime. Overall, Mr. Mumble is both a solid adaptation and a great fun action movie. Definitely one of the best anime adaptations out there and something I think fans of City Hunter as well as Hong Kong action films would enjoy.
