the samurai genre meets time travel and modern weapons, 27 December 2001

GI SAMURAI is a film revolving around a platoon of japanese soldiers on manuvers with a helicopter, jeeps, and a tank who get time warped to the past during the fuedal era of the samurai. This film mixes the samurai martial arts genre with a tale of modern weapons against waves of 1000's japanese samurai on horses and on foot. A fantasy film that was fun to watch. The modern japanese troops end up battling for their lives in the past of japan. One of SONNY CHIBA's better films after the popular STREET FIGHTER series.
