| Awesome title but unfortunately a boring vanity film
When will I ever learn. I need to pay a bit more attention to the film credits before purchasing films in the future. Had I done so I would have realized that Buffalo Bushido was written, directed and starring Peter McGennis who plays a troubled and disillusioned drug addict with his character named simply enough as Davis. Actor Peter McGennis "who" you ask? Exactly! This film dragged on from the on start and never achieved any level of entertainment value throughout. I actually read the film summary which sounded quite interesting and it also included some good actors such as Jesse L Martin as Shawn known mainly for the TV series Law and Order as one of the series lead detectives. It also includes the hard working John Savage as Detective Vendetti who has appeared in close to 200 films throughout his career, and the attractive Leila Arcieri as the stars love interest named Sadie Miller.

The premise of the film has Davis returning to Buffalo after being estranged from his family and friends for over the past decade. Slowly the writer/director and film star Peter McGennis inserts childhood flashbacks with his close friends Shawn and Sadie all the while Detective Vendetti is travelling from New York City to Buffalo to speak to the recently released prisoner Davis. The audience apparently is supposed to be captured with intrigue by all the characters past relationships but all I could keep thinking was "lets' get this movie going buddy because I want it to end sooner rather than later." I assume Mr. McGennis spent a considerable amount of the films budget to retain some credible actors and as a result the films budget left little capital which results in a lack of quality story line and cinematography as evident in the films content. The difficulty of a film star producing, writing and directing their body of work leaves all the risk square on the investors shoulders and if I see Peter McGennis's name attached with so many credits in the future I will be more cautious with my movie dollars expended.

I rate the film a 3 out of 10 and I think I am being generous.
