Six-String Samurai Movie Review
I doubt it that many of us have heard of Six-String Samurai, and most will never. However, they might be missing out on something. Six-String Samurai is a strange, twisted, funny, action-packed film that probably does not have much redeeming value but is entertaining all the same.
The movie introduces us to The Kid, who's only form of communication seems to be these strange yelps. Buddy, the Six-String Samurai, who is on his way to Vegas to be donned King, since Elvis died, tries to ignore The Kid but ends up taking a liking to him. Of course, Death wants Buddy's 1957 guitar, and the Russians, who have taken over America, don't want Buddy getting in to Vegas.
There is not a normal character in the movie, not even Buddy or The Kid. Buddy is a musician who is also a martial arts expert. Death seems like a spoof of Darth Vader. Furthermore, the world that is created in the movie looks like something out of The Postman (only better), but with music.
Six-String Samurai has a great soundtrack, which only adds to the action, excitement, or comedy, whichever needs it most.
Words can't really describe the twisted creation of Six-String Samurai, so see it for yourself.
