Afro Samurai
Japan 2006
Directed by Fuminori Kizaki
Running time 100 minutes
Rated MA

Often using a washed out, almost monochrome, colour palette, Afro Samurai is visually stunning. The vivid splashes of red blood and vibrant bursts of colour are electrifying. The fluid animation, especially during the fight scenes is breathtaking. Even the most hardened Wuxia fan will be astonished how much damage can be caused by the Samurai sword. Afro Samurai is a dream for martial arts and blaxploitation fans everywhere.DMB

DVD Extras: In a typically nice package from Madman we get a look into recording the voices in In The Booth: The Voice Talent of Afro Samurai. We also take a musical tour with RZA and get a selection of interviews and character profiles with commentary by co-producer, Eric Caulderon. Things are topped off with a production artwork gallery.
