The first Samurai film I ever saw, as well as, my own personal introduction to Director, Akira Kurosawa, and probably the fuel that sparked and fed my cinephelia. Enjoyed the (1st) Magnificent 7 (spagh western remake) & anime version of the OG b&w film. Def recommend to anyone that likes period pieces, japanese culture, spagh westerns, b&w film, foreign film, action-drama, or just a damn good movie. Think Japanese Swiss Family Robinson. . .but waaay more bloody fighting & plot content.

one of the best films of all time. If you pass this film by because you're a person who doesn't watch black and white films or are not a fan of the genre ,you will be missing out !Anyone who has never seen a Toshiro Mifune film will quickly understand what a brilliant actor he is after watching him in this.

First watched this when i was 12 back in the 90s. I fell in love with akira kurosawa and toshiro mifune because of this movie. Amazing acting and directing. Theres a reason this movie is continually copied by other directors
