Not quite what I expected with a title like Samurai Cat
20 November 2015 | by (Edinbruhhh) – See all my reviews

When I heard the title 'Samurai Cat' I thought that this could be some good cheesy entertainment with a cat kicking some ass.

That was however NOT this movie, the cat is just a regular cat, perhaps 'The Samurai and the cat' would be a more fitting title cause there is a Samurai who takes care of the cat.

Although the samurai does not kick a lot of ass in the movie either, anyways it's an adoption of a TV series from what I understand, I haven't seen that so I can't common whether or not it's true to the series or whatever.

So yeah although it has okay acting (except for the cat who looks very uncomfortable when he supposedly looks peaceful according to the characters) and cute cats it doesn't really make much of an impact.

Not really sure who the movie is supposed to be directed towards, it's a little too slow to keep a child's patience I imagine and probably a little too silly for most adults.
