PG action doesn't mean it's not exciting!
14 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is nearly impossible to find something bad to say about this miniseries. For every one silly thing it does, it immediately makes up for it by doing something really awesome. When they manage to pull a training montage (In the vein of Karate Kid) out very early on in the show, you'll probably want to quit it all together, but then they turn it around and poke fun at how so many movies follow this path. The twists and turns of this show are especially well done. In the beginning, the plot doesn't seem all that intricate, but as the series progresses, the story becomes much stronger and takes a lot more chances. What surprised me the most is the sense of humor throughout - it's not all about the crazy stunt work, they really put a lot of clever jokes into this script. You may lament the fact that it is basically a PG movie (Based on a young adult book series), but I found that the subject matter is suitable for the tameness. Also, even though the title has "Girl" in it, anyone could watch this and enjoy it - not just young girls. The only thing it lacks because of the rating is a ton of blood, and I can respect that they clearly wanted to go a different route with Samurai Girl. I didn't expect to like it as much as I did, but the humor is top notch, the action is intense and fun, and the cast is tremendously likable - it is nice to see so many fresh faces on screen. Star Jamie Chung definitely has a bright future ahead of her in movies, and hopefully in the possible sequel to this series.
