Movie Reviews

Lift Off
Antonio D. Paolucci | Beaver Falls, PA | 11/04/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In volume one of Samurai 7, there just seemed to be too much character introduction and not enough story. Not to say that this was bad or anything. I enjoyed the first volume very much (see my review at my profile). It presented the conflict and progressed to the characters from there. It just didn't move much from there.

Volume two though gets more into the story, or at least in parts. There still is a great deal of character introduction. The final two samurai make their appearances in this one, but a little more of the characters' pasts are revealed along with more of the world setting and history. It also develops some of the character relationships in volume two.

As was expected, the action scenes are excellent and the characters, though numerous, have their own unique qualities. The one problem, though, is the huge number of characters, whether they're protagonists or antagonists. It's extremely difficult to grasp all of the names. Counting right now in my head, there are nine protagonist characters and five antagonist characters, not to mention the numerous support characters that have popped up.

I recommend this for fans of Samurai Champloo or if you own and have liked the first volume of Samurai 7."

"If you liked the first dvd then you should still like this one. Its got less action, more just continuation of the story and characters. The first one is rewatchable because i thought it was really good, but this second dvd not so much. But still, if your watching the series and like it keep watching, its just not quite as good as the first. Leads up to a promising looking next dvd though. Also the art is very good on the limited edition, im not sure its worth the extra $ but if u love the art, go for it."
