Trivia

The film was accused of being a bad rip-off of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). The film does have a couple of similarities. The film takes place on a desert planet called Arid. Hirokin is a 'Last Samurai' even though in the film it's not confirmed he is the last of a order of Samurai-like warriors. In 1 scene, Hirokin goes to a cantina and buys a drink. Moss leads a rebellion against Griffin, an evil tyrant and Moss instructs Hirokin in "The Way" to help him become a better fighter. See more »

Looks good, but...
3 May 2016 | by BezenbySee all my reviews

...this is the first of three films I've watched recently that look great, but don't have much else going for it. The story involves our man Hirokin, who is a human that lives on a planet that looks like Earth, who gets involved in a rebellion against the oppressive human regime. In the desert.

Our aliens look remarkably like humans (one even has a Scottish accent) and are led by Agnus McFadyen. Hirokin is the chosen one and blah blah you've heard this thousands of times.

Bad stuff: Far too many over-emotional scenes of people standing around while the music swells, which is all fine if something was going in between these scenes, but there's a lack of action here. So if, like me, you were waiting for Hirokin to man up and starts slashing hordes of bad guys, you're in for disappointment. Hirokin is in fact a bit of a knob.

I couldn't care about anyone in this film. It looked really good though. More action, less arsing around talking philosophy.
