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 rest ...

Biff Yeager plays Sand's shady sidekick.

 


Black 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!
