Editorial Reviews

Buddy must fight his way to Lost Vegas and ditch a bothersome orphaned kid if he's to become the next King of Rock 'n Roll.

I consider a 'B Movie' to be a film that is not only made with a small budget, but also a film that has a lack of creativity and entertainment value as well. 'Six-String Samurai' has none of those problems with it. It was a post-modern 'melting pot' idea that gave birth to it and only those who can understand and recognise the homages to the past can get the reason for the plot. The basic idea is that there is no deep plot and it's just a mix of the filmakers favorite things captured on film in various genre's. There is, however, the attempt to suggest that the only reason that Buddy Holly wasn't deemed the king of Rock and Roll was because he died before he could take over and what he was replaced with was a showboat who didn't know a thing about rock and roll because he was a popstar. An attachment to this idea is the thought that not even today's axe grinders could match up to him and this is played out by the dueling guitars between 'Buddy' and 'Death' at the end. There might be other ideas, but my review is getting long so I'll get technical. The production design, lighting, and cinematography are very good considering the fact that their influences were primarily Westerns, Chop suey Kung Fu pictures, and 50's surf videos. This bizarre mix of influences is also shown in the soundtrack as well which is a mix of tracks done by the Red Elvises and a score by Brian Tyler. The Red Elvises changed their sound to a spaghetti/surf/dixieland/ feel that's in tune with the film's humor and Tyler's score is in tune with the ridiculous, yet plausible dramatic aspect of the film. If most people would listen to Tyler's score I believe that they would want to see the film it was composed for and upon seeing it, most would probably say that it was a waste of good film music.Read more ›

Format: DVD
A friend of mine saw this film during its limited theatrical release, and instantly recommended it to me. I saw it on VHS at his house, and my first impression was that this was a moderately enjoyable film, with a brilliant premise. The cinematography was top notch, and the soundtrack is EXCELLENT. It made the movie for me the first time. I liked it enough to buy both it on DVD and the soundtrack so I could show this amazingly wacked out film. After watching it several times, I fell in love completely. This movie is simultaneously a rock and roll fairy tale, a samurai film, a Road Warrior type film, and bracingly original. The Six String Samurai is fighting his way towards Lost Vegas to become King, but must fight off bowlers, an ENTIRE army of Russians, and Death (dressed like Slash from Guns and Roses) to claim his crown, with only his sword, his six string, and an arsenal of one-liners. Along the way he picks up an orphaned kid, who is admittedly incredibly annoying for the first half of the movie, and learns the true meaning of being a king. Add in references to the Wizard of Oz, and this film is a masterpiece. You'll laugh, and you may even get misty-eyed by the end. I highly recommend this movie to anyone looking for something different. You won't regret it. The DVD has one notable feature for true fans of the film: some music videos from the Red Elvises (who provide a majority of the soundtrack, and appear in the movie briefly), and who simply rock. If nothing else, you'll have a movie that will either impress or confuse your friends, both desirable results!

Format: DVD
A post-apocalyptic, spaghetti western, rock-n-roll Samurai film? Yep. That pretty much sums up SIX-STRING SAMURAI. It's quirky. It's B-movie all the way. It's wonderful.

What we have here is a film shot on weekends on a minuscule budget in and around Death Valley, California. It also pays homage to many films; every Clint Eastwood spaghetti western ever made, Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, Night of the Living Dead and, of course, The Wizard of Oz, just to name a few.

The movie was dubbed giving it a hokey spaghetti western feel that matched the production values perfectly (very low). "The Kid" in the film (Justin McGuire) was a carbon-copy of the mangy little guy that follows Mel Gibson around in Beyond Thunderdome. There's a family of cannibals and "The Windmillers" who represent the slow brain functions from Night of the Living Dead. And then there are the multiple references to The Wizard of Oz ("Just follow the yellow brick road").

The story's focus is on Buddy (Jeffrey Falcon), a six string carrying, Samurai sword wielding bad boy who wants to be the new "King" of "Lost Vegas." But first he has to get there. Traveling across the desert wasteland of the post-apocalyptic world, Buddy (who looks remarkably like Buddy Holly) has to slash, punch, and scratch his way toward The Emerald City (another Wizard of Oz reference that we see, Lost Vegas looking very much like the gateway to Oz's hometown). Along the way Buddy picks up "The Kid", a young boy who's mother was killed by humans resembling troglodytes. The Kid doesn't speak (initially) and only screams/moans whenever he wants Buddy's attention. But The Kid is good with mechanical objects (cars, motorcycles, bicycles) and the two form a grudging relationship as they travel together.
