Editorial Reviews

At a private school that turns boys into true men, grueling training is practically the only thing that you can count on. Between hundreds of pushups, hot-oil baths, and being locked in jail cells, the new students have a lot to deal with before they can even think of kicking back and relaxing. And when a rival school is out to cause some trouble, will true friendship be able to save the day? The Samurai School's rules don't usually allow for personal grudges, but the rules don't matter anywhere outside the grounds.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 30, 2009
Otojuko is an elite men's private school, where Japanese heroes and leaders have been trained for centuries to be the ultimate macho warriors.

And since "Samurai School" (adapted from Akira Miyashita's manga "Sakigake!! Otokojuku") was written and directed by Tak Sakaguchi, you can expect the movie to have two things: a warped and weird sense of humor, and lots of elaborate butt-kicking. It's a fun action-packed parody on Japanese macho attitudes, which gets more bizarre as the plot winds on; the only flaws are a subplot or two which really add nothing to the movie.

After being rescued by a mysterious stranger named Momotaro (Sakaguchi), who says he can be found at Otojuku, Hidemaro (Hiroyuki Onoue) learns that his mother plans to send him to Otojuku to become a man, and restore the family's fortunes. He encounters Momotaro and the bombastic, good-hearted Genji Togashi (Sh'ei) at the opening ceremony, but things start going wrong immediately -- Otojuku is a superhardcore school where students must endure thousands of pushups and horrible punishments (boiling oil and potential death-by-megaboulder) for minor infractions.

And after a brief run home, Hidemaru starts fitting in at Otojuku with his friends. But suddenly the school is attacked by Omito Date (Hideo Sakaki), an expelled student, and his sidekicks Hien (Go' Ayano) and Gekko (Shuya Yoshimoto). They challenge the loud-voiced principal to the Amazing Triple Death Battles -- and the winner will get control of Otojuku. Momotaro, Togashi and the nimble martial-artist Ryuuji Toramaru (Shintaro Yamada) all volunteer to fight Date, Hien and Gekko.

Who will triumph in the Amazing Triple Death Battles? Who will come out of it alive, and who will die very, very dramatically? Will school spirit overcome Date?

This was one of the goofiest movies I had ever seen before. I have seen some crazy films in my time, but this is just goofy. You have people boiling themselves to show their strength, outrageous fights, and oddbal stunts. It was worth the money for the laughs I got out of it though.

Funny. Since weaklings invented the rules on amazon I am required to write a certain minimum of expression past the true expression.
