Are they only Oriental or do we have West Samurai Movies too?
Can be post-apocalyptic, mob-killers or even a cross-dresser too?
3 West Samurai Movies selected for you to answer the question.
1 Six-String Samurai (1998)
The king is dead. Long live the king.
The king in question is none other than Elvis, who became ruler of the city of Lost Vegas.
Indeed, after a war between the USA and Russia, the apocalypse has fallen and men are wandering among the ruins of civilization.
One of them is a samurai / guitarist on his way to claim the still vacant crown.
Incredible and unacknowledged film to really see, a post-apocalyptic action / musical one of a kind.
2 Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999)
He is a lone samurai / killer who works for one and only one master.
But when he finds himself framed by some criminals, he betrays him by trying to have him killed.
The samurai will then have to test his honor and loyalty.
Fantastic movie by Jim Jarmusch, original as usual in looking for a subject outside the box.
An old school action / crime with a great Forest Whitaker protagonist, dark and lonely in his life as a street warrior.
A must have in your collection.
3 Der Samurai (2014)
One night in a small german town, a policeman meets with a mysterious blonde-haired cross-dressed armed with a katana.
The cruel samurai will forever upset both the life of the policeman and the normal lives of the citizens of the small village.
A bizarre but very tasty mix of a classic horror with the “slicer” killer and a colorful and dark comic at the same time for the last of 3 West Samurai Movies.
To see at least once in a lifetime.
