Like many Asian films Afro Samurai is about revenge. When he was a child he saw his father killed in a duel for the title of number one warrior. He was obsessed with payback ever since.
The cowboy is a fitting foe because the movie plays out like a Western. Thus Afro Samurai comes into a town, goes to the local saloon and gets into fights or meets an opponent in a desolate setting just like America’s old West. At the same time there is an ode to samurai films of the 1970s with gushing blood when someone is killed with a sword. There are also cool touches like Afro Samurai’s opponents sounding like a bunch of old black guys, and of course Afro’s sidekick is voiced by Samuel L. Jackson. Finally the action, which takes up a large part of the series is well done and so is the animation.
I never took the time to watch this when it came out but I’m glad I now have it on blu-ray to enjoy.
I see some reviews that this may not be the Director's Cut version due to the original Samuel L. Jackson language NOT being used. Let me assure you, that Samuel L. Jackson drops his first MF bomb at 10:02 on this disc.
Assassins are comin' at Afro like flies to hot ..... , according to Mr Jackson. Enjoy!
Blu ray looks beautiful. Top notch audio, video and plenty of good little extras for those that care for that. The anime itself is pretty good but just a little too over the top for me. I love Ninja Scroll and those type of super powered characters but some of the villains here are just too absurd even for an anime. One shoots out 50 or so missiles from a rocket launcher and then has missiles busting out of his hi-tech arm all the while his partner has a patch eye that is examining everything on the battlefield and Afro Samurai bob and weaves, slides, jumps, ducks, and runs past all of that without a single hint of desperation, anxiety, worrisome or stress. That's another fault of this otherwise pretty cool anime, afro samurai is too invincible at times.
Samuel L Jackson in his anime finest! Here is my review for Afro Samurai!! please enjoy!!
Plot and Characters: (minor spoilers only) In the world where it takes place is a some what futureistic and kinda fudal state of Japan. Warriors fight over two head bands. The #1 headband, who ever wears it is known as the worlds most badass fighter and only the #2 headband may challenge the #1 fighter. So everyone wants the #2 head band and will kill anyone who has it. our main character is only known as Afro Samurai. As a child Afro watched his father Rokutaro who had the #1 headband get killed by a gun slinger called Justice who was the #2 fighter in the world now is #1 and tells Afro when he is grown up one day to come back and fight him for the #1 head band. This is where Afro's jouney begins. Along with his friend Ninja Ninja played by Samuel L Jackson he will fight for the head band and revenge his father's death!
Pros: The Director's Cut series here is the UNCUT and UNCENSORED version. This series was once shown on Spike TV for all 5 episodes but they had it edited for blood and swearing, this series gives you the all the swearing you know Samuel L Jackson is known and the blood in the series. It is 5 episodes long, It is full of action and fighting so never a dull moment!
Cons: Nothing really bad here. Its such a super series!
Over all: I loved this series!! buy it!!! and its movie sequal Afro Samurai Resurrection which I will give a review for soon!!
The copy I got “new” was actually not new, it was tampered with. There was a plastic wrap that made it look legit and new but there was remnants of a previous seal on the disc box. I checked the disk to see what kind of condition it was in and there were a few scuffs, will still run but just feels DIRTY. Buyer beware.
I love this show and have seen it numerous times. I wish i could find another show like it but so far not luck. A couple got close but they were no Afro! This is the true directors cut so if your reading this you just need to click order!
