Movie Info

Two friends are overcome with the spirit of the samurai warrior after unearthing a pair of mythical swords in this over-the-top action effort directed by freshman filmmaker Aaron Yamasato and featuring special makeup effects by Screaming Mad George. Trent (Bryan Yamasaki) and Rob (Michael Ng) are two average guys -- until they stumble onto two mythical swords with the power to instill their owners with supernatural abilities. Inexplicably instilled with the ability to wield a kitana with deadly precision and write in Japanese, the deadly duo do their best to protect their girlfriends from a crossbow-wielding assassin known as The Hunter (Shawn Forsythe) and unveil the mystery behind their sudden transformation.

Audience Reviews for Blood of the Samurai

Aaron Yamasato needs to hang it up because Blood of the Samurai is one stinking pile of garbage.

70 minutes is all it takes for this monstrosity to reach it's conclusion, but boy it feels like 2 hours. The plot details are paper thin while the settings, camera work, dialogue, and lighting are bottom of the barrel in quality.

There are swords, but what potential the swordplay has is hidden behind the paper thin plot details and bottom of the barrel settings, camera work, dialogue, and lighting.

The acting is a joke. The line delivery is equally as bad. The non-stop background music is annoying; talk about a 1 track soundtrack. Don't forget the paper thin plot details and bottom of the barrel settings, camera work, dialogue, and lighting.

Blood of the Samurai has paper thin plot details and bottom of the barrel settings, camera work, dialogue, and lighting. Enough said.
