"26.8 DVD En ollut oikeastaan edes yllättynyt että iski näinkin hyvin, saman vuosikymmenen Ranin ollessa kuitenkin hienointa Kurosawaa, jonka kanssa tämä on monellakin tapaa rinnastettavissa. Koko idea kuningasta esittämään joutuvasta varkaasta herättää jo alkujaan mielenkiinnon ylle ja lähinnä keskustelukohtauksista koostuvat ensimmäiset pari tuntia on niin mainiota seurattavaa, ettei lopun sotakohtauksissa tunnu edes olevan ihan samanlaista hohtoa enää. Erityisesti värienkäyt"

"This movie is an interesting one, to be sure. Akira Kurosawa directed this movie about a peasant who is used to impersonate the leader of a large clan in the warring period of medieval Japan. Written and played out like a true tragedy, you can't help but watch as all hope for a favorable resolution literally dies at your feet. I found it hard to watch this well "

"Abandoning his earlier, all too optimistic attitudes about heroism and individualism, Kurosawa explores the importance of the social contract and loyal service to the group/clan in the interests of the greater good. In that vein you could say it's his "most Japanese film", as he was often criticized for adopting too many western ideas. It's certainly the Kurosawa film that's most packed with subtext, metaphors, and symbolism. You can study this film endlessly and still not grasp all its concepts"
