If you haven't seen Six-String Samurai yet, stop reading this review right now and rent it. Other reviewers have talked about this movie being over-hyped, but coming at this moving completely clean, I thought it was great fun. This is not a post-apocalyptic thriller. This is not a kung-fu flick. This is a kid's movie. I'd bet dollars to donuts that Six-String Samurai started out as someone's bedti... read more

"May 23 Since I saw that the giraffe said this was an underrated film on one of his lists I decided to check it out. I thought it was cheesy in a good way. The martial arts was good and I liked the premise."

“If you haven't seen Six-String Samurai yet, stop reading this review right now and rent it. Other reviewers have talked about this movie being over-hyped, but coming at this moving completely clean, I thought it was great fun. This is not a post-apocalyptic thriller. This is not a kung-fu flick. This is a kid's movie. I'd bet dollars to donuts that Six-String Samurai started out as someone's bedtime story. It's full of quest mythology (a la Star Wars) and childhood nightmares (a la Through the Looking Glass) with the magic of music to tie it all together (a la Blues Brothers). It's the Wizard of Oz with Mad Max sensibilities. Kudos to Mungia and Falcon for making this refreshing movie. If somebody gave these guys a major budget, a basket-full of cameos, and a little bit of script tweaking ” read more
