I admit to knowing little to nothing about the Samurai Shodown franchise. I don’t think that really matters because if a movie is truly good, it should be able to stand out as being good in its own right. I can say that this was very bad, among the worst anime films I’ve ever seen. I guess it’s no surprise seeing as how bad video game movies are, but anime versions are usually better. I was amazed at how cliché the story was. It featured a bunch of people working together to defeat an evil force that was away for a hundred years or something. The animation doesn’t hold up at all.
