Critic Reviews for Samurai Jack Season 5

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (6)

It's hard to tell if this tighter approach to episodic storytelling will reach a satisfying end, since Tartakovsky excels more at bringing us into the heat of the moment than exploring a bigger picture. But he's off to a promising start.

It hasn't missed a single beat, effortlessly recapturing everything that has always made the series great... It's intoxicatingly perfect action cinema.

Samurai Jack wasn't a property I'd been dreaming of ever seeing again, but it's emerged from its trip through time and space far better than most of the recent TV revivals.

Even with the weight of Jack's grief hanging over every moment, Tartakovsky manages to flavor certain scenes with an absurdist comedic flair.

Take any single image from the new season by itself and it looks like a dynamic work of art. With so many haunting visuals, we're going to be remembering this show for a long time to come.

My god, this is the most wonderful time to be alive for fiction. Listen, when we talk about comebacks. When we talk about Ali, Foreman, Jordan, we going to have to put Samurai Jack up there with the greats.

Focuses on maximizing its artistic aesthetics, though that's not to say it is bereft of narrative cleverness, catharsis, and philosophical introspections.

Even when things are dark, the show is still fun in the way that Tartakovsky, his team of animators, and the writers have always approached scenes.

Sep 26, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

These 10 episodes featured some of the show's finest animation and gave Jack a resonant and satisfying emotional conclusion.

Kudos to Genndy Tartakovsky for this masterpiece of a show, 16 Years later we finally get back to the past, Samurai Jack.

Audience Reviews for Samurai Jack: Season 5

As painterly, pensive and kinetic as ever. In all probability, the most beautiful animation ever made for television, with it's moral sights firmly fixed on peace even as it exhilarates with its bravura combat sequences. Good in every way; humane, funny and visceral. A masterpiece.
