With Seven, You Get a Masterpiece
Growing up, I thought of Japan as the home of anime and giant monster films. Then, while attending college, I saw "The Seven Samurai". I was proved wrong by this film, which is considered to be the magnum opus of celebrated filmmaker, Akira Kurosawa, by movie historians. They're right.

1587 is the year in Japan and the story's setting. Previously, the nation was ruled by a shogunate (the shogun being the Imperial Army's commander) with the emperor reduced to powerless figurehead. However, unavoidable civil wars came, caused by ambitious daimyo (local warlords), who wanted power, no matter what.

In this epic tale (co-written by Kurosawa, Shinobu Hashimoto and Hideo Oguni, all who worked Kurosawa's "Ikiru"), a poor, humble farming village and its' residents are constant victims of a bandit clan. Rice and sex are the group's goals, and they break carelessly the villagers' spirits. What to do? The local authorities are inept, and suicide, for a farmer, is giving up.

"We hire samurai," the village elder strongly suggests. A quartet of farmers, with a pillar of rice as payment, does that, employing seven individualistic but noble ronin (samurai without masters). There's Kambei (Takashi Shimura of the original "Godzilla" and other Kurosawa works), the valiant leader; Gorobei (Yoshio Inaba), a good second-in-command; Shichiroji (Daisuke Kato), a battlefield acquaintance of Kambei; Heihachi (Minoru Chiaki), an optimist; Kyuzo (Seiji Miyaguchi), a perfect killing machine; Katsushiro (Isao Kimura), a green, wet-eared boy and the unforgettable Kikuchiyo (famed Kurosawa player Toshiro Mifune), a wild dog yet perfectly human goofball. Together, they're a force of nature, bounded by courage, honor and self-sacrifice.

If you don't like a foreign, subtitled, black and white, three hours and twenty seven minute film, which "Samurai" is (and more), you need to be committed at once, post haste (I also adored "Grindhouse", which is sixteen minutes less). Under Kurosawa's direction, the film has a jackrabbit's pulse, a wolf's ferocity and a lamb's serenity. It's fascinating that both camps (samurai and farmer) learn from each other while fighting the enemy. Even two reps, despite their social standing (born in a role, die in a role) fall in love; the passion between Katsushiro and Shino (Keiro Tsushima), a young woman whose fool father has cut part of her hair to "protect her from the samurai", is subtlety passionate.

As the resident clown, Mifune's so idiosyncratically human, he's almost American, being no surprise that he influenced Clint Eastwood (The Man With No Name trilogy) and the late John Belushi (the samurai skits on "Saturday Night Live"; the Bluto role on "Animal House"). The battle scenes are fierce and kinetic; it's hard to distinguish whether this work is real or fiction, and that's what makes "Samurai" brilliant. The actors, besides Mifune, are great too, honest in their emotions.

What more praise can I deemed upon "Samurai", other than its' director has influenced the likes of Leone, Peckinpah, Scorcese, Lucas, Rodriguez, Miller, Tarantino, Cannell and others? It's just damn cool. The American western remake, "The Magnificent Seven", is reliable but comes short, if compared to "Samurai", being star-studded and Hollywood polished. Peckinpah's "The Wild Bunch" is a better, if unofficial, remake.

If you buy the three-disc DVD from Criterion (expensive but worth it), you'll be forever enchanted. Give some honor to "The Seven Samurai", and enjoy.

It doesn't have a 9.0 average for nothing folks.
Everyone in film has heard of Seven Samuri. If you've never heard of it, you are pretty new to film. You can't go to any movie site on the net that doesn't mention it. But, not everyone has seen it.

This movie continues to amaze me to this day. If you haven't seen this movie, pick it up.

First off, if you don't like foreign films, I can understand that. I don't either. It's not that I'm racist to other countries, it's just that foreign films are usually artistic. And I hate artistic movies. But Seven Samuri is not artsy. Once you get past the subtitles, the film is great. I don't like subtitles. They're distracting. Now dubbing is bad too. It takes away from the actors performances (not to mention it's funny as hell in a Godzilla sort of way). But I perfer dubbing mainly because it doesn't require you to take your eyes away from the action. So, if you can get this movie in dubb, please do.

Everything about this movie is ahead of its time. My favorite character is Kitshirio (or however his name is spelled). He's much like the comic relief we see in movies every day, only this guy is good and important to the story.

I really don't want to talk about this movie anymore. It's so good, please see it. If you don't see it, you have no right to call yourself a film fan. This is THE most important movie of all time, because every movie that Hollywood has ever made has copied or taken something from this film. See it. Please.

9/10

(It would deserve a 10, but it is a wee bit overrated.)

Why Attack a Defended Village?
I really like this movie and have seen it several times, but each time I have to question why the bandits would attack a defended village. They had pillaged it before an unknown number of times and each time would have just ridden in and taken what they wanted. This time was radically different. Gone were the straightforward accesses and in place were flooded areas, stout fences, and Samauri. I would have to say the bandit leader was lacking in marbles. Why not just ride on to the next village and plunder that one? Why engage a formidable enemy and risk losing any men at all? At any rate had I been a rider I would have ridden the other way once the fighting began and not stick with an idiot who called himself the leader.

Memorable characters and one of the best action movies of all times
Having seen Kurosawa's Seven Samurai at least 10 times, I still see something new every time I watch it. I don't see how anyone, especially a non-Japanese, could possibly absorb this movie in less than 2 or 3 viewings. I've always been surprised at how each of the 7 samurai can make such an individual impression on you even if you can't understand Japanese. Although Toshiro Mifune is often considered the star, for me its Takashi Shimura who is firmly fixed at the center of the movie. He is the guiding moral force from the moment of his appearance in the film and can capture the viewer's attention in a way similar to Alec Guinness. Mifune's character can be annoying at first in his loutish behavior, but he gains stature throughout the film and eventually becomes a unifying force second only to Shimura. Minoru Chiaki as the woodcutting samurai provides a subtle humor and the others look to him to boost their morale. Daisuke Kato is another very familiar face to Japanese movie fans and provides an excellent foil to Shimura as his second in command. Yoshio Inaba is very good as the samurai who is recruited by Shimura and quickly builds a strong rapport with him. Seiji Miyaguchi as the "expert" warrior, dedicated to honing his skill as a swordsman is a very low key yet likeable character. Ko Kimura as the young hero-worshipping samurai, as well as the love interest of the peasant girl, wishes to be a great samurai, but is easily distracted by a field of flowers or a pretty face. The peasants in the village being defended by the samurai each have their own defining characteristics as well.

In addition to the wealth of interesting characters, we have a terrific action plot--the defending of the village from 40 marauding bandits by the small troop of samurai--, and a more subtle secondary plot involving the distrust of the samurai by the villagers due to the historical interaction of these two classes in feudal Japan. All of these plot and character elements are woven together into an unforgettable epic, but, at least in my opinion, its not one that can be absorbed in a single sitting. While it's similar in this sense to another of my favorite epics, Leone's Once Upon a Time in the West, it is more complex given the number of characters.

I can only say that your patience with this film will probably be well rewarded if you take the time to give it multiple viewings. You will also have the pleasure of seeing many of the samurai and villagers pop up in other Kurosawa films and films of other Japanese directors. If you like Mifune and Shimura in this one, catch them in Stray Dog and Drunken Angel in very different settings and parts.

This one is 10 out of 10 without a doubt.

A veteran samurai, who has fallen on hard times, answers a village's.
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.

Seven Samurai
There is a nuanced feeling between a new release could score an 8/10 (say THE DARK KINGHT RISE 2012) and a classic acquire the same rank, (but if divided more precisely, which I feel compulsory to do but in lack of a potential spur to re-set my entire rating system. TDKR is around 7.8-8.2 while SEVEN SAMURAI is surely wavering around 8.2-8.5).

SEVEN SAMURAI, an esteemed masterpiece from the reasonably most eminent auteur, Akira Kurosawa, not only from Japan, but the wholesale film history as well, why my belated first- viewing has a tad underwhelming collision, notably juxtaposed with another Akira's chef- d'oeuvre RASHOMON (1950, 9/10), which had been my one and only entrance before SEVEN SAMURAI, this action saga of seven samurai trains local village farmers and fights against bandits has a thrilling in-depth character-building deployment and the action sequences are cutting-edge of its time. And seminally a full-flown censure upon class discrimination could reverberate till today although we are miles away from the feudal era.

Against a 207 minutes running time, surprisingly I still cannot distinctively tell each samurai from their appearances and 4 of them all died from muskets is a grave ridicule of the deprivation-ridden samurai social stratum, nothing is remotely close to any dueling-style combat which I prefigured during the much-hyped final showdown. But the camera-work from Asaichi Nakai is a first-class roller-coaster ride since the fight kicks off, leaving a woeful curtain call of four disturbing graves standing under the background which potently ends the film in a provoking manner.

The cast are excellent by and large, with Shimura gives a composed and sage leadership with his empathetic charisma, Mifune, on the other hand, is more rely on his own panache to contradict his identity dilemma (from a farmer-born orphan to an unclassified samurai-wannabe). Several supporting roles are also glistening, Bokuzen Hidari's chicken and wordless farmer who finally delivered his only line during his last breath is striking deep in my mind. Miyaguchi's superbly practiced swordsman also exemplifies the most orthodox samurai image, they are all among the marrow of my first viewing.

The sway of the Harakiri spirit is ubiquitous, particularly among the ill-fated bandits, which occasions some random thoughts such as instead of executing themselves on the ultimate suicidal march, they could have retreated and recruited more people and then plotted their revenge which makes for a more common sense instead of being dragged from the horsed and slaughtered one by one by the samurai-farmer coalition. The storyline-setting seems to choose an easier way out and avoids undermining the film's integrity and leaving an edgy unfinished business, nevertheless is this some overt contrivance which plain suffices to facilitate the film which should be at least pointed out? Or maybe I should watch more Japanese films to digest their ethos and frame of minds?

It is Akira's best
One year at Grossmont College, they had a year of Akira Kurosawa movies.

I watched them all. At the end, I could understand Japanese. I also understood what a great writer & director he is. The Magnificent 7 is a cheap ripoff of this classic, & yet, it is still almost as powerful as 7 Samurai, I'd give it a 9.

I have to say I wept bitterly when Akira died in 1998.

Only one film of his I didn't like, "Ran". It's because it's based on the one Shakespeare play I didn't like. King Lear.

How is it possible for a film to be this good?
What else can I say that hasn't already been said about this film? Nothing much but I'll still tell you my own experiences about watching this film.

I had just recently become interested about Akira Kurosawa after being very impressed by some of his films: Dersu Uzala and Ran. Now when I had the chance to watch this man's most recognized work that has said to be the first modern action film, I could not let it pass by. This film was 51 years old when I watched it. Being born to this generation which grew up with fast-paced, explosive action films filled with computer effects, I shouldn't have been entertained when watching this colossal 3½ hour, slow-paced, black&white film with no computer effects at all. Despite all that this film shines bright for it is film-making at its best. If there is one film in this world that is completely flawless then it must be this one. All aspects in this film work perfectly: acting, directing, art direction, costume design, cinematography, editing, sound, everything!The Best thing about Kurosawa is the way he uses the camera to tell the story: visually stunning yet simple. Honest film-making with no tricks.

If you haven't seen this film and have intentions on seeing it, then you are an idiot. Sorry but this film is larger than life and you just can't die without seeing it or you shall always feel that you have missed something grand.(Note: this last paragraph is only directed to fellow film-fanatics)

"It is when we feel our safest we are most vulnerable."
Perhaps the greatest Japanese film of all time and one of the best foreign films ever, Seven Samurai more than compensates for the 3 1/2 hour run time that holds us in its grasp. Some parts may feel a bit stretched or contrived, but the action sequences are absolutely thrilling cinema and some of the best ever shot on screen. Director Akira Kurosawa used multiple cameras to shoot these scenes, and as a result, the pace flows wonderfully and they look great.

The acting is also very good, with Takashi Shimura shining as the leader Kambei. However, the best role is that of Toshiro Mifune, Kurosawa's favorite muse and longtime partner in acting. His turn as the outsider samurai is truly impressive to watch as he prowls around like a lion full of energy, sensuality and fearlessness. There is also a very sweet and tender romance amidst all the hatred and violence that escalates to the climax.

As mentioned before, this isn't an easy film to watch with the 200 minute running time and foreign language. But, if you take the time to watch it, you will witness a landmark in international cinema as perhaps the first action-adventure epic in movie history as well as a timeless story of honor, courage, and selflessness that defines a hero.

i urge all humans to find the necessary 3 hours.
i watched "yojimbo" and "a fistfull of dollars". i watched "rashomon" and "the outrage". having done so, i can compare them, and say that all are great films (although kurosawa's originals are, of course, superior to the remakes).

but after watching "seven samurai" and "the magnificent seven" i found myself unable to make a comparison. "magnificent" is a good movie; with yul, eli et al it almost had to be. but "seven samurai" is on another level entirely. when i attempt to produce adjectives that fit this work, i fail. it is, in my opinion, better than all other movies in almost every way.

kurosawa is something beyond brilliant, and mifune is mesmerizing (to say nothing of shimura and the rest of the outstanding cast). this film overwhelms all applicable senses, and is as emotionally effective and affecting as...i don't know...real life.
