Trailer Park | Afro Samurai: Resurrection

25 07 2008

The “baddest mother (shut yo’ mouth!)” this side of “Shaft,” will be featured on the small screen in January when the critically-acclaimed, funktastic anime series “Afro Samurai” returns with an original movie event.

“Afro Samurai: Resurrection” is based on the original art and story telling of manga artist Takashi Okazaki, of a black samurai’s quest for revenge and justice for his murdered father, Jackson reprises his role as the uncompromising hero, Afro and his motor-mouthed sidekick Ninja Ninja. When his father’s body is stolen from its grave, Afro is forced to pick up his sword and wreak bloody vengeance against an army of deadly foes lead by a sadistic mastermind. Liu voices Sio, a beautiful, seductive and sadistic mastermind plotting to destroy Afro Samurai.

It never seems to amaze us how in HADES that Samuel L. can find time to work on all of these different projects. The brother is truly a cinematic treasure!

The film stars Jackson and Liu, while The RZA once again provides the original score.

“Afro Samurai: Resurrection” will debut on Spike TV in January 2009.
