Samurai Commando: Mission 1549, known in Japan as Sengoku Self-Defense Forces 1549 (戦国自衛隊1549 Sengoku Jieitai 1549?), is a 2005 Japanese feature-length film and manga series focusing on the adventures of a modern day Japan Ground Self-Defense Force (JGSDF) element that accidentally travels through time to the Warring States period of Japanese history. This film was unofficial remake of the 1979 film G.I. Samurai.
