American Samurai fits into a genre of cinema that enjoyed far to short
a success, that being the underground, martial arts death tournament film.
Films like this enjoyed a great boom in the eighties and early nineties and
arguably were the influences for the modern fighting tournament games such
as Street Fighter 2 and the like. Some other films of this genre are "Ring
of Steel", "Best of the Best 2", "Blood Fist 2" and perhaps one of the last
of these magnificent creatures to appear in theater; John Claude VanDam's
"The Quest"... unless of course you count the more recent "Fight Club",
which you shouldn't because it's not about underground martial arts guys
that fight but just normal guys and that isn't the main plot of the film
anyway really. As evident from the title this film also belongs to the
school of sticking the word American in front of stuff IE: American
Ninja's 1 through 4, American Ronin and American Cyborg. this usually
you have an instant classic on your hands. Anyway what really makes the
film shine is the cast of characters. American Samurai offers more weird
fighters than any other film of the genre that I have yet seen. If nothing
else it would make a great video game. I will attempt to catalogue the
assortment of fighters in the style of a badly translated Nintendo
- The American Samurai: A warrior of much honor though American, trained
master Samurai in Mountains of Japan. Master of Sword and peaceful of
but strong to win. Entered tournament to reclaim family sword from evil
- His Yakuza Samurai Brother: Adoptive brother of American Samurai and son
of Master Samurai. Strong fighter but gangster with no honor or mercy
- The Bowie Knife Cowboy: American fighter, fast with knife although quite
stupid. Fights in tournament for much cash prizes and
- African Master of the Quarter Staff: Not much known about this fighter.
likes to strike poses with his staff weapon.
- Pirate Swordsman: A much feared prate from the coast of far off lands.
Wears eye patch but is still dangerous.
- The Deadly Braid: Much like fighter in "Best of the Best 2" he fights
with sharp implement tied to his long braid of hair. Born in China he
possess much fighting spirit.
- Chinese Axe Spear Guy: Second warrior from china and master of martial
arts axe spear technique. Fast warrior but uses much energy in attacks.
- Conan the Barbarian Guy: Former stunt man of lame 80's European sword
sorcery/caveman movie genre gone renegade. Now looks for new career
wielding broadsword for money and glory in tournament.
- Nordic, Viking, Berserker Type: Crazy Horned warrior from Sweden.
Attacks fierce with axe.
- Weird-ass, Klingon Sword Looking Thing Wielding Guy: Warrior killed by
Evil Yakuza Brother. Fought with weird-ass star trek, alien weapon things.
I know there wear a few guys I've forgotten too. Oh yeah this film also
features John Fujioka playing the Japanese martial arts master who raises
and trains our hero upon finding him stranded in his infancy. This is the
exact same role he played in American Ninja. "I only play old Japanese
that find American babies and raise them to be martial arts masters". Now
that's over specific type casting if you ask me. Anyway the film is also
peppered with blindfolded swordsman training sequences, lots of crazy
fighting and flash backs to really bad wise old sensei advice. In short
this movie rocks. There should be more films like this. I'd comment on
film's success at creating one of the most awkward romantic subplots ever
but I think I've run out of space. See it yourself.
