Review and thoughts
A lot of people who play arcade
games will know that Samurai Shodown is an arcade game made by SNK
and are available for the NeoGeo game system. Due to the
popularity of certain arcade games, they usually have a motion pictures
or movies for it, just like Street Fighter 2 the movie or Fatal Fury the
motion picture. And for those people who never played Samurai Shodown and
are just an anime viewer, they wouldn't know any of the characters from
Samurai Shodown and might not enjoy this movie. I read an anime review wrote
by someone that said Samurai Shodown(the movie) doesn't even rate 1, and has the
worst graphic and storylines. Oh, that was really a huge insult to Samurai Shodown.
The graphic or drawing might not be that good, but the stories are really
something and every characters are awesome. I really like this motion picture
base on the fact that this anime is more a historically based anime. If
you want me to compare Street Fighter 2, the movie with Samurai Shodown,
I would prefer Samurai Shodown. Even I am very familiar with both
Street Fighter's and Samurai Shodown's character and story plot and
despite the popularity of the SF2 movie, I still think that Samurai
Shodown is more worthwhile to watch. By the way, I like the SS ending
-Rent it before you buy it.
-Buy it if you are really rich.
-Buy it if you've seen the movie and feel the same as I do.
-Buy it if you love anime and you love Samurai Shodown.
-Buy it if you really want to know more about Samurai Shodown(historically) and
you don't mind watching bad artwork.
The movie is available from A.D.Vision.
