best movie ever made !!!
Seven Samurai" is the greatest filmmaking ever . Every scene is necessary and perfectly directed. Kurosawa succeed to make a perfect movie that will combine drama ,comedy, romance , philosophy and definitely most powerful. dynamic and intense battle scenes ever filmed ,( nowadays directors should watch it and learn how to direct a battle scene ) .despite 200 minutes of running time "Seven Samurai" doesn't bore at all. this movie has such a strong spirit it's epic . the storyline is strong and the character's are amazing ,each of them is very well developed, which gives the movie more depth. visually the movie looks beautiful , pure and perfect cinematography . Kurosawa was undoubtedly one of the most influential directors of all time a lot of movies nowadays use techniques from him. they way he used weather to set atmosphere and mood , the Rashomon's effect , transition between the scenes etc i can talk about this movie all day long and it still wont be enough it's a movie for generations..... a true masterpiece of cinema

The Best
Let's see what this movie didn't have going for it to this middle-aged American. 1. It's in black-and-white 2. It's in Japanese 3. It takes place in a 16th century Japanese farming village 4. It's subtitled...and 5. It's 207 minutes long And it's just about the best movie I've ever seen...the time flew by. I didn't want it to end. Kurisawa has made a masterpiece I can't recommend highly enough.

Film making does not get grander than this....
Akira Kurosawa's magnum opus, Seven Samurai is the only film till date that I have rated 10/10 and I kept trying to look for reasons to do otherwise but unfortunately I couldn't. This is film making at it's best and at it's grandest. What I saw was the uncut three and a half hour version of the film and those 3hrs 26min precisely were the best I ever had.

Seven Samurai has one of the best laid out characters. They are detailed, humanistic and beautifully befitting characters. The humanism and naturalism of the characters is striking for a movie made in 1954. Each character leaves a mark of it's own and this doesn't confine to the seven samurai's. Akira Kurosawa's detailing of his character is apparent. Even the choices of the actors, their own idiosyncrasies are reflected through their characters. The Samurai's are not the ideal protagonists they are meant to be. They are flesh and blood, prone to faults, their actions have logic and thought and that's what brings it closer to humanism.

Moving from the characters to the actors. Seven Samurai probably has the most brilliant ensemble cast. Every actor is tailor made for his role, from their physique to their mannerism, from their laugh to their emotional responses they are pitch perfect. Whether it's a result of hard work and practice or brilliance of casting, it simply makes it all incredibly genuine. As characters bandits where mechanical though but what the hell, one would be cynical to count it as a flaw.

The story, simple but the execution, WOW. Only a brilliant mind could have conceived such a piece of art only Kurosawa could have. The scenario of the village, the detailing of the strategies and the terrain almost in line with true military structuring. Brilliant. Every second of the 200 or so minutes utilized in filling the canvas. Now, about the action. This movie has changed the way world sees action in films, it brought about a revolution but still after ages of being copied and reproduced this looks fresh because the celluloid here captured the sweat and blood of people involved. No technology, no ornamentation simple human effort and that's what makes it look lively even in this age and time.

Akira Kurosawa's sense of film making is at it's epitome here. This person has inspired generations. A hero who struggled, who fought and who won. The movie ends with the Samurai's saying "We have lost again", but this is not true. Kurosawa - The samurai has won. His life long passion has won, he has the final laugh and he deserves it thoroughly.

This is Greatness personified.

Greatest film of all time
Akira Kurosawa made "Seven Samurai" because he wanted to make a real "jidai-geki," a real period-film that would present the past as meaningful, while also being an entertaining film. Kurosawa considered "Rashomon," the film rightfully credited with making the West aware of the Japanese cinema, with being neither. But in his attempt to make a truly "realistic" film, Kurosawa redefined the conflict at the heart of Japanese films. Before "Seven Samurai" this conflict was that of love versus duty, where the central character is compelled by fate to sacrifice what he loves in the name of duty. In "Seven Samurai" the focus remains on duty, yet the conflict is now between the real and the pretended. Calling yourself a samurai does not make you one, something proved time and time again in the film, from the test of skill turned deadly between Kyuzo (Seiji Miyaguchi) and the tall samurai to the first appearance of Kikuchiyo (Toshirô Mifune), with his stolen pedigree. Like Katshushiro (Ko Kimura), the youngster who wants to learn from the master, Kambei (Takashi Shimura), the audience is educated as to the true nature of the samurai.

For me this film deals with the heroic, albeit in realistic terms. I have shown the film in World Literature classes, after students have read Homer's "Iliad" and as they begin reading Cervantes' "Don Quixote." Within that context, compared to the brutal arrogance of Achilles and the gentle insanity of Quixote, the heroic qualities of the seven samurai become clear. Their inspiration extends to some of the villagers. Manzo (Kamatari Fujiwara) is crazed with fear over the virtue of his daughter, Shino (Keiko Tsushima), and Rikichi (Yoshio Tsuchiya) fights to avenge the disgrace of his wife and his precipitating the death of Heihachi (Minoru Chiaki), but it is the comic Yohei (Bokuzen Hidari), who finds within himself the ability to fight, a die a tragic death, who is the true barometer for what the samurai mean to the village. But the greatest tragedy is that despite this most noble effort and the bodies buried in honor at the top of the village cemetery, this has been but a temporary union between the villagers and the samurai. When Kambei declares, "We have lost again," he redefines the battles: it was not to kill all the bandits, it was to find a true place in the world. Yet we should have already known this, for the painful truth was driven home when Kyuzo, the master swordsman, is gunned down from behind. No better proof is needed in this film of the bitter truth that the world is not fair.

Mifune is the maniacal spirit of this film, as the faux-samurai Kikuchiyo, the dancing whirlwind whose emotions overwhelm everything including himself. But it is Shimura as Kambei, who embodies the mentor mentality with a minimum of effort, evoking more by rubbing his hand over his shaved head or giving a single piercing look than by any spoken dialogue. Even in a strong ensemble these performances stand out, for clearly different reasons. To fully appreciate Kurosawa's mastery in "Seven Samurai" you need to watch the film several times to better appreciate the way he constructs scenes, using contrasting images, evocative music and varying the length of cuts to affect tempo. For example, look carefully at how the early scene of the farmers searching the streets for samurai and the later sequence where Katsushiro watches Kyuzo and Kikuchiyo waiting for the bandit scouts to return to their horses. Both of these scenes are superb primers to Kurosawa's style.

For years we had to put with the 160-minute version of the film that was made for export, which was actually called "The Magnificent Seven" until John Strugis's Western remake. Fortunately, "Seven Samurai" has been restored to full 208-minute glory, saved from being a lamentable cinematic tragedy on a par with "Greed," "The Magnificent Ambersons," and "Ivan the Terrible." There is a sense in which "Seven Samurai" is truly my favorite film, because it was the one that instilled in me a love of cinema, of the craft and art of movie making, of compelling me to understand intellectually how Kurosawa was skillfully manipulating my emotions. The final battle sequences, fought and filmed in a torrent of rain, exhausting characters and audience alike with its increasingly relentless tempo, is given its potency because of the human elements that have been established in all that has taken place before hand. "Seven Samurai" is a magnificent film against which the vast majority of epics pale in comparison. Not even Kurosawa scaled these heights ever again.

Iconic influential movie
It's early 16th century and Japan is in the midst of civil wars. A poor village faces constant harassment from bandits. A villager overhears that bandits are planning to come back after the harvest. After a debate, the village elder proposes to hire samurai. The villagers have little to offer. They witness heroic ronin Kambei rescue a boy. Young Katsushirō is desperate to be his disciple. Kambei reluctantly agrees to help the villagers but he determines that the defense needs at least seven samurai.

This is simply one of the best movies ever. It is influential in so many other movies. The characters are funny and compelling. They are iconic in their simple characteristics. Modern audiences may find the over 3 hour running time a bit too long.

Best Kurosawa film
Best Kurosawa film to my humble opinion and one of the best plays from Mifune. Everything matches all together: story, choreography, photography, dialogs, acting...there's nothing left. Most important is the rhythm of the film. Although being part of Japan arts & cinema school Toho, he imposes a tense and continuous thread all over. It is clear all the scripts from Kurosawa, come from a wide conception, deep interpretation of diverse classics from worldwide literature. There is quite non left. In this film you can feel from the ancient Greek tragedy drama to the more contemporaneous English black novel. Essential film to watch to understand cinematography history.

I can see why it's a classic, but..
Undoubtedly, the director was way ahead of his time with The Seven Samurai. I can appreciate it, really i can. The problem for me is that for me it is just a little too dated. If I watched this back in 1954, it would have been a 10/10, but unfortunately some of us have higher standards these days.

The picture is pretty grainy, and the soundtrack adds tedium to the lengthy build up that precedes the final battle. Some of the acting is a little over the top to be plausible, and it's hard to have any sympathy for the villagers who are just a bit too cowardly to be worth saving.

I know it's one of the world's great movies, and the majority of viewers will love it, but I can't see myself watching it again in a hurry.

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.

Seven Samurai - My Review
One of favourite movies of all time is The Magnificent Seven and when this has been mentioned from time to time i have been asked if i had seen the film that it was based on - Seven Samurai , so i finally decided to give it the Valleyjohn Treatment thanks to a request from one of my Myspace friends and i can only thank that person for persuading me to watch this memorable movie.

Akira Kurosawa's epic tale concerns honor and duty during a time when the old traditional order is breaking down. The film opens with master samurai Kambei posing as a monk to save a kidnapped farmer's child. Impressed by his selflessness and bravery, a group of farmers begs him to defend their terrorised village from bandits. Kambei agrees, although there is no material gain or honor to be had in the endeavour. Soon he attracts a pair of followers: a young samurai named Katsushiro who quickly becomes Kambei's disciple, and boisterous Kikuchiyo , who poses as a samurai but is later revealed to be the son of a farmer. Kambei assembles four other samurais, including Kyuzo , a master swordsman, to round out the group. Together they consolidate the village's defences and shape the villagers into a militia, while the bandits loom menacingly nearby. Soon raids and counter-raids build to a final bloody heart-wrenching battle.

I'm not a big fan of old black and white movies . I used to watch many as a kid but as i have got older i have found i have not really got the patience for them. Because of that , Seven Samurai was always going to be a difficult film for me to watch. Not because of it's content but because of the length - Three hours and nine minutes!

So to stop me drifting i decided i would watch the movie in two parts and because of that decision i really enjoyed this epic movie. You can see many comparisons with the Magnificent seven . The Samurai all have distinctive characters and you can see the comparison to the Yul Brynner and Robert Vaughn roles from the 1960 film but despite the comparison's they are very different movies.

Seven Samurai is a far more brutal movie than the Western version but it also has some very poignant moments. None more so than the very last scene where the surviving Samurai are standing at the gravesides of their fallen comrades.

The performance from Takashi Shimura ( Kambei the samurai leader ) and Toshiro Mifune ( the crazy Samurai) are very memorable and at times i completely forgot i was watching a film that was made 54 years ago.

Although film purist's will rate this higher than the John Sturges remake i still prefer the Cowboy v Mexican version but i grew up watching that film so that is to be expected.

Seven Samurai is definitely going to be one of those films that will be embedded on my brain for the rest of my life and the split viewing was well worth it in the end.

I will leave you with the thoughts of Kikuchiyo - "What do you think of farmers? You think they're saints? Hah! They're foxy beasts! They say, "We've got no rice, we've no wheat. We've got nothing!" But they have! They have everything! Dig under the floors! Or search the barns! You'll find plenty! Beans, salt, rice, sake! Look in the valleys, they've got hidden warehouses! They pose as saints but are full of lies! If they smell a battle, they hunt the defeated! They're nothing but stingy, greedy, blubbering, foxy, and mean!"

Nothing changes does it!
