Janicot (Bill Roy), a Satanist based in Mexico, controls the worldwide
drug trade. But there's a prominent Asian politician who is apparently
also a samurai and who wants to effectively fight international
drugrunning. So Janicot has the politician's daughter Toki (Essie Lin
Chia) kidnapped, to keep the politician in line. Bad thing though that
Toki has a boyfriend, Sand (Jim Kelly), also known as the Black Samurai,
and he's the top agent of an organisation called DRAGON - and he will stop
at nothing to get Toki back. And Janicot really throws everything but the
kitchen sink at him, from a seductive priestess (Marilyn Joi) and midgets
to Zulu warriors (though the film is set in Mexico), snakes and a vulture
- but does it help any?
Nope, Sand has an answer for everything Janicot
confronts him with and not only has perfect kung fu skills but also
carries a miniature flamethrower and grenades in his pants and travels
around in a very fancy sports car with a built-in weapons system or even
by jetpack. In the end, after an extended chase though the satanists'
castle, Sand locks Janicot in with his own snakes and lets them do the
Biff Yeager plays Sand's shady sidekick.
Samurai is, you have guessed it, a silly film, but it's also amazing
fun. Seeing Jim Kelly kung fu fight midgets, Zulu warriors and a vulture
is hilarious, and his attempts to come across as Mr superbad are even
funnier. Add to this the typical superagent gadgetery presented on a tight
budget, garish 1970's fashion, a cast of weirdoes and a very skeletal
plot, all brought to you in Al Adamson's compact yet unimaginative
drive-in style - and you are left with the almost perfect party movie!
