DO YOU KNOW JACK?
Kevin J. Loria | New Orleans, LA USA | 03/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is an amazing animated series created by Genndy Trakovsky and the team responsble for STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, both premiered in August of 2001 on the Cartoon Network. Samurai Jack's highly detailed, outline-free, masking-based animation style and its cinematic pacing, is unusual for today's cartoons. For example, the story is often stopped to allow for the building of tension before combat or for humor's sake, and it is not unusual for episodes to be almost free of dialogue. While the battle scenes in the series are reminiscent of samurai films they populate Jack's future setting with a variety of robot enemies providing censorship loophole, since the fallen "bleed" only oil. Also the music is so integral and powerful it could carry the story without any of the beautiful graphics.Featuring the voice work and the incredible depth of feeling from Phil LaMarr as Jack, and brilliance of Mako as Aku.

If you don't know JACK...SAMURAI JACK, that is, is the story of a young samurai warrior seeks to defeat the evil shape-shifting master of darkness, Aku who has destroyed his father's kingdom and imprisoned its people. During a climatic battle between Aku and the samurai, Aku sends the young samurai through a time portal into the far future where Aku rules the Earth. Called "Samurai Jack" by the inhabitants of this future world, he seeks a way to return to the past and undo Aku's horrible deeds while battling Aku and his evil minions. This story is revealed in the first 3 episodes which form a superb trilogy, previously released as "SAMURAI JACKS: THE PREMIERE MOVIE."

The series won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program in 2004 (it was also nominated in 2002 and 2005) - and artists Scott Willis, Dan Krall and Bryan Andrews received Emmys for Outstanding Individual Achievement In Animation for their work on the series.

This set includes the previously released first 26 episodes, with the addition of episodes 27 through 39 as released in the season 3 set fromMay '06. Notable for 2 part "The Birth of Evil" revealing AKU's origin in the only story without Jack.

FANS of the "Anglo-Anime" hybrid style created by the Samurai Jack team, WILL LOVE THIS SERIES! This is great set if you don't already own the season individually, until season 4 comes out in 2007. HIGH FIVE."
Who doesn't like Samurai Jack?
Michael Stillion | Atlanta, GA | 01/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"How could you NOT like Samurai Jack? Few shows can evoke such powerful feelings in its viewer. Despite the cartoon format of the show, its intelligent, interesting, full of everything good you would want - and would want your kids - to learn and do in life. How to defend, when to defend, When to fight, what is worth fighting for, how to persevere, how inner strength is the key to a peaceful life. All things great from the traditions of Japanese culture, which I find interesting anyway.

But it's not all seriousness and solemn. The Scotsman, anyone? Jack as a Chicken? Learning to "Jump Good?" Great entertainment is great entertainment."

Samurai Jack...a man of few words living in a cartoon world
Michael S. Olson | 03/08/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I remember watching the series on Cartoon Network and finding myself intrigued with how the elements worked together as a whole. Using the influence of literati painting and early martial arts movies, it was able to create a world where the real and the unreal coexist harmoniously. I especially like how it simulates the use of special camera angles and sequences. It was a work that I just had to have in my collection."
