Forty years after Russia nuked the United States, it has become a wasteland. The only surviving city is “Lost Vegas.” In Six-String Samurai, an alternate-history-kung-fu-musical-comedy, Elvis ruled America after the bombs dropped, but the King has died. It’s time for a new hero. Enter Buddy, who travels with nothing but a six-string, weapons and a child in tow. If Buddy can make it through the badlands full of marauders and outlaws to Lost Vegas before Death himself, there might be hope for the future. If the campy action and quotable dialogue don’t grab you, the soundtrack – featuring the Siberian surf rock group the Red Elvises – might.
Is that Buddy Holly with a Katana?
