In the year 20XX, scientifically created zombies roam the world in record numbers. Despite this, Aya is determined to track down her father’s killer, a person who was once close to her. With sword in hand and wearing nothing but her trademark bikini and cowboy hat, she sets off to settle the score. Aya is joined on her path to vengeance by the chubby Katsuji and the gun-toting Reika. Together, they hack, slash, and shoot their way through a sea of the undead to reach the final showdown with a mad scientist and the destined duel with Aya’s own sister.
Finally, a bikini samurai film for the rest of us. Based on the hyper-violent manga turned video game, Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad, is literally about a hot samurai that runs around killing zombies with a katana sword. Sold. I went into this assuming it was a non-stop bikini bloodbath. While it definitely has its moments, most viewers would prefer more bikini swordplay. When I say most, I mean as in me. Onechanbara tows the line between B movie and a real movie; maybe add a dash of fan fiction to the mix.
The film looks great in HD and offers some cool and creative effects. It’s so crisp and clear, in fact, that you can see Aya’s fake rose tattoo on her left shoulder. Believe me, it adds charm. Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad is EXACTLY what you think it is. If you like the idea of hot women chopping down zombies, then you’re sure to enjoy this one. Blood torrents for everyone!
