Blood, guts, boobs, light comedic undertones, and Samuel L Jackson. That's Afro Samurai for you. The original Afro Samurai mini-series was a big surprise. Not only was the show extremely bloody and fun, but Afro was a surprising complex character, and the show explored the theme accepting what you have beautifully. It has a amazing Bloxpoitation style that displays a great mix of western and Japanese culture. For those who don't know what Bloxploitation is, let me explain. It was a sub-genre of exploitation films in the 70s. These films typically had a very Spaghetti Western/Noir style and explored themes such as revenge, loss, and standing up for yourself and what you believe in. Though these movies were mostly terrible, they inspired a whole generation. They were simple and yet effective. The beauty of Afro samurai is how simple, yet complex it is. If I were to compare Afro Samurai to something, it would be Django Unchained due to its mix of Spaghetti Western/Noir, Hip-Hop, and gleeful violence. Fans of Tarantino, westerns, and martial arts films should enjoy the show and this film. It's not Ghost in the Shell or Neon Genesis. It's a simple, simple story. It doesn't deliver any social commentary on what it means to be alive, but it's still a powerful tale of family and morals. It delivers fun, with just enough maturity to satisfy me. This seems to be more of a review of Afro Samurai overall rather than just this movie, but to me, the show and movie are technically just one big 4 hour film.
