3 stars out of 5 -- "It's downbeat but stylish, lobbing in leftfield ideas and serious slice 'n' dice..."
Ultimate DVD - 10/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] a monochrome anime style as a backdrop for immeasurable geysers of violent bloodletting....AFRO SAMURAI certainly earns its cool credentials."
PULP FICTION's Samuel L. Jackson brings his trademark cool to this hip animated series. Afro Samurai (Jackson) is on the hunt for vengeance as he follows the inappropriately named Justice (Ron Perlman, HELLBOY), who is his father's murderer. This mash-up of samurai life and hip-hop features the musical talents of Wu Tang Clan's The RZA. AFRO SAMURAI is available in regular and uncut versions.
