Most important Samurai picture in history

"This is the nature of war. By protecting others, you save yourselves."

In the hands of legendary filmmaker Akira Kurosawa, a simple tale of seven samurai hired to protect a village from marauding bandits is transformed into a unique and mesmerising action epic of sustained tension and stoic humanity. It would ostensibly seem that stacking further praise onto Shichinin no Samurai (S... read more

Considered Akira Kurosawa's most accomplished work, Seven Samurai is a black & white classic whose story has inspired many a film afterwards, most notably (& one of my favorites) the Magnificent Seven.
It's a story of the Old East, which coincidently enough, runs themes which will eventually become staples in movies dealing with the Old West.
Here, the heros are truly heroes, but eac... read more

A veteran samurai, who has fallen on hard times, answers a village's request for protection from bandits. He gathers 6 other samurai to help him, and they teach the townspeople how to defend themselves, and they supply the samurai with three small meals a day. The film culminates in a giant battle when 40 bandits attack the village.

Movie Reviews (part 14) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: It is a epic Samurai movie by Akira Kurosawa what more do you need to know? It feels autentic and real. It has a great person gallery. The story has been copied and recycled dozen times over and is hugely influental. Every filmshot feels filmed with care and love. The Downs: Impatient people who expect a full-blown action movie will be disappointed."
