Lazer Us


Jimi Lazer is famous: to a few people. His plans to become famous to a lot of people, however, include sacrificing the ones who need him most. Now it’s a race against the devil to possess the guitar that’s causing all the trouble. Little does he realize that breaking his curse is as easy as raising the dead.

Dove Review

This is a very unique and original movie filmed in a style that could only be called a “moving graphic novel.” It stars Robbie Beniuk as Jimi Lazer, the Jimi Hendrix of his day, who makes a deal with the devil to become famous. And what is the price? His firstborn child must die and be claimed by the devil. We hear Satan’s voice as a low sounding and malevolent one. The movie points out that Hendrix and Kurt Cobain died at age 27 and the question soon begs to be asked: will Jimi’s daughter, now an adult, die by age 27? Jimi has refused to play his guitar because of his love for his daughter. He wants to make sure he can’t become famous. He even dismantles it and places the separate pieces in various locations. When Zmoothie, his daughter (Amy Landon) approaches her birthday the devil demands his due. But a man named Freedom, wants to offer himself as a sacrifice for her. Will it be possible? Does it happen?

You will have to watch the movie to find out. “Lazer Us: The Legend of Jimi Lazer” is an off-beat movie, with some unusual symbolism at times including falling pebbles and an hourglass tipping sideways. We also hear a baby crying but learn it is from a tape and is not really a baby. A man also talks and sings and sounds like Johnny Cash. The theme is that Jesus was and is the sacrifice for man’s sins. We are awarding our Dove Seal to the film for ages twelve plus, due to the brief use of language and the darker theme of the spiritual battle for Zmoothie’s soul.
