Samurai Chicks: a fine low-budget indie import for those who
James G. Carlson | City Earth, Pennsylvania | 11/05/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Like I put down in the title field, Samurai Chicks is "...a fine low-budget indie import for those whose tastes lie outside of the American mainstream." Like other Japanese, Korean, and Thai films, especially with titles such as Oldboy, Battle Royale, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Nieghbor No. 13, Ichi the Killer, Machine Girl, Toyoko Gore Police, 13: Game of Death, and so on. If you dig such films, this one will be right up your alley, as they say. It is definitey a low-budget indie foreign film, but it is also an amusing, interesting, exciting, strange, and cool piece of film. Four girls at a Dance School are chosen to advance to the next phase, which consists of them becoming teenage assassins of the rebellion, fighting the establishment to gain independence for their little group of insurgents (The Kingdom), using a peculiar kung fu based on dance moves, throwing stars and knives, sword play, and doing what they were trained to do. Overall, it's a great move. And I hope to find many more like it.
