Top definition
A genre of film (often exploitation) that focuses on revisionist depictions of the samurai. Usually involves moral grayness, revenge-driven antihero protagonists, nudity, sex scenes, swordplay, and blood.
Whereas westerns focuses on cowboys and indians and swashbucklers are about pirates, chambara films focus on samurai.
