A really great epic film, beautifully told with stunning acting
This is one of those great epic films that stands the test of time. I only saw this film for the first time in 2000, almost 50 years after it was made, and was astounded by it. It was an epic that truly told the whole story. Whereas most movies today manage to skirt around huge chunks of what would happen, this movie manages to show them all, and not in a boring way. The samurai don't even reach the village in danger until more than 30 minutes into the film, all that time being spent getting to know each of the characters and the motivation and history behind them. We get to truly learn what it takes to be a samurai, and what truly sets them apart. By the time we arrive at the village we have become attached to some of the samurai in a very personal way, respecting each of them in their own way. The rest of the movie progresses as if it were a documentary, not a fictional film, where we see each and every piece of the grand puzzle that happens in this village. I can't recommend this film enough, though I must throw a disclaimer out that if you're not a fan of epic movies with subtitles you may not be as interested. It is a 3 1/2 hour long movie! But if you can find the time to sit down and watch it, I doubt you'll be very disappointed.

The Greatest Japanese Film of All Time
Shichinin no Samurai/Seven Samurai(1954) is a beautifully shot dramatic action picture. Its about farmers who hire seven ronin warriors to help rid them of bandits. Seven Samurai(1954) is an epic that's enriched by its length. One of the ten greatest motion pictures of all time. The long length is helpful in development of character and plot.

Seven Samurai(1954) changed the way action films were made in the cinema. The film focuses on things like friendship and teamwork in war. The recruiting of the 7 samurai warriors is done with precise detail. Influenced every action film done after this. Seven Samurai is a movie that I never get bored of watching.

The acting in the feature is amazing to see. Takashi Shimura gives a fine performance as the leader, Kambei. Tatsuya Nakadai has a short role as a wandering samurai. Kichijiro Veda is a formidable villain as the bandit leader. Yoshiro Inaba is very good in the role of Gorobei Katayama.

The direction by Akira Kurosawa is perhaps his best in a long line of great films. He directs action and drama scenes with equal interest. Akira Kurosawa with this film is someone that current filmmakers are in awe of. Kurosawa and Toshiro Mifune make an excellent actor and director combo. The director also contributed to the brilliant editing.

The battle scenes are a mixture of outstanding camera work and fantastic editing. The Seven Samurai(1954) sets up the battle scenes beautifully and finishes with a payoff to remember. The battle scene during the climax is exhilatrating to watch. Akira Kurosawa has filmed many great battle scenes in his samurai pictures. The battle scenes in Seven Samurai(1954) put similar scenes in Gladiator(2000) and The Patriot(2000) to shame.

Toshiro Mifune is larger than life as the farmer turned samurai, Kikuchiyo. Its his performance as Kikuchiyo that made him a cinematic icon. Gives a performance of chivalrous proportions with a dominating presence that is not easy to match. Chow Yun Fat is the Toshiro Mifune of our generation. Kikuchiyo shows true courage as he sacrifices his life for the farmers he is hired to protect.

Although remade into The Magnificent Seven(1961), the film that is closer in spirit to this picture is Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch(1969). Seven Samurai(1954) was one of the first modern films to use the slow motion effect. Both films deal warriors and outlaws who end up fighting for a cause. Also, in both films the theme of honor and sacrifice dominates the screen. The Battle of Bloody Porch in The Wild Bunch(1969) is inspired by this film's climatic battle.

The story is simple but compelling to understand. The screenplay is perfectly written by Akira Kurosawa and Shinobu Hasimoto. The story has an universal appeal that anyone can comprehend. The story has been used and reused by directors like George Lucas and Ridley Scott. Other film makers inspired by Seven Samurai include Sam Peckinpah, John Woo, Steven Speilberg, and Stanley Kubrick.

Seven Samurai(1954), Ran(1984), and Throne of Blood(1957) are the director's three masterpieces. The best way to see this film is in its complete 203 minute version. Akira alternates serious sequences with scenes of humor. Gives a wonderful sense of the period the film takes place in. A masterpiece with emotional performances and powerful set pieces.

The farmers evolve from being in fear of the bandits to standing up to them with courage. The samurai warriors also evolve from hired hands brought in to do a job to fighting for a honorable cause. The film is a long three act play that never fails to entertain. The techniques marvels of master filmmaking and outstanding visuals. There is not a dull moment in the entire film.

samurai swords is just good
Clocking in at just under four hours with not a scrap of filler, Kurosawa's THE SEVEN SAMURAI is every bit as legendary at its enthusiasts would have you believe. The basic story is extremely simple. In a period of social chaos, a small farming village learns it will once more be attacked by a band of thirty bandits after the harvest. At first the farmers despair, but village elder Gisaku (Kokuten Kodo) recalls that in his childhood a similar village met a similar situation by hiring Samurai to defend them. The villagers accordingly send representatives to the city, where they are able to convince Samurai Kambei Shimada (Takashi Shimura) to undertake the defense.

If the plot sounds familiar, it should: Hollywood would translate it into the extremely popular 1960 western THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN--but fine though that film is, it pales beside THE SEVEN SAMURAI, which effectively turns an action film premise into a character study of the first order and endows the story with both tremendous simplicity and artistry. Much of this is due an extraordinary ensemble cast, which includes the celebrated Toshiro Mifune (who would later appear in Kurosawa's THRONE OF BLOOD and YOJIMBO); above this, however, is Kurosawa's remarkable vision that draws upon the visual motif of the circle. The circle is a powerful presence in SAMURAI. The village is presented as a roughly circular pattern of houses; the farmers meet in circles; in due time the Samurai enter the circle and stand at the center of the circle, directing the defense--and indeed the circle will become the defense, as Shimada works to find means to draw the bandits into the circle and to their doom. The motif will be elaborated: tied to the cycle of seed time, growth time, and harvest; tied to the cycle of life; and ultimately showing the quiet bitterness of life for those who operate outside the circular codes of community: the "Ronin," the Samurai who have no master and no community, and whose lives are not valued by the community except for aid at a moment of crisis. Shot in simple black and white, as much (if not more) a detailed character and culture study as it is an action film, THE SEVEN SAMURAI is extremely simple and yet extremely subtle, and ultimately one of the most powerful films it has been my pleasure to review. The quality of the Criterion DVD transfer is very good, but by no means flawless-- although it survives well, the film has not been digitally restored, and artifacts are frequent. There is little in the way of bonus material, but the commentary by Michael Jeck is quite fine. Strongly recommended.

One of Kurosawa's best
While this movie is probably the most widely recognized film of the director Kurosawa, it isn't my personal favorite--though it's close. But considering how many wonderful films he made and how this movie sparked the Magnificent Seven films, its impact and importance can't be ignored. And I would have to say that it deserves all the attention--it's just too bad that other films like YOJIMBO, SANJURO and THE BAD SLEEP WELL just haven't gotten all the attention this film has. Actually, it['s strange that I am getting around to reviewing this film now--as I have seen it several times and thought I'd already reviewed it.

The film begins in the feudal period in Japan in a small town that is being terrorized by a gang. These thugs periodically come to strip the people of what little they have as well as their dignity--much like locusts. Eventually, the gang's demands are so extreme that it appears they have no choice but to fight back when they next return--otherwise they face starvation. The problem is that these are simple peasants and they haven't got a prayer against Ronin (i.e., samurai who have no master). Eventually, townspeople get the idea to bring in some of their own Ronin to fight against the evil gang. At this point, the film concentrates on the seven men--who they are, their motivations, etc. It is here that the film really excels. In fact, probably the least exciting portion of the film is the eventual battle between the forces.

An excellent character study and a film with so much to love--great acting, direction and a dandy and exciting script.

"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.

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 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.

Thrilling, interesting, beautiful, and unexpectedly funny.
Coming in at over three hours, and being set in 1500s feudal Japan, Seven Samurai is a true historical epic. It may not have gone many exotic places, much of it in one tiny village, but hey, neither did Titanic. But it's epic status is not what sets it apart from the rest; no, rather is its dramatic storyline and subplots, as well as very likable leads. Kurosawa's script (also a writer here) doesn't play this up as a period piece, thankfully refraining from anachronisms, and it says fresh in 2012 (although it was probably re-subtitled with the DVD release a few years ago). It also shows the Japanese humor that Kurosawa eagerly portrays in some scenes--genuinely funny, I might add--even if not full on comedy quality (it is a drama after all).

After the opening credits, which features great drum based music, showcasing Japanese culture and the action element of Seven Samurai, we see a group of bandits about to pillage a village positioned in a basin with sides made of mountains, frequently demanding that the villagers pay them to keep them safe. A farmer from this small farming town overhears their conversation to come back when the harvest is over. A leader from the village suggests hiring samurai to protect them, ones that will take rice and shelter as compensation. So we see a down-on-his-luck veteran-samurai negotiating and freeing a child from harm, and a representative from the village asks for help. After much persuading the samurai accepts, but says the job will require at least seven. Next, we track down four more, a good natured one that is often the source of comic relief, and a master swordsman, who's quiet, yet well spoken, with philosophical lines. A villager is accepted to the brotherhood. Finally, a clown of a man, seldom not drunk at the beginning, who begs to come along, and they reluctantly accept.

After this rich exposition, the committee tasked with finding the samurai return victorious, and you next expect a great celebration, possibly even a feast (this is a town where the villagers seldom eat rice out of season, only millet). Much to the chagrin of the seven, there is no outpouring, not even people in the streets. The men with daughters and/or wives, are protecting them from who they think are going to rape them. The rest are simply afraid. So the wild card, the fool among masters, sounds the alarm bells in the village square. After all the peoples fear the worst and come out to defend themselves, the samurai delivers a wonderfully pointed speech about how they did not come to be feared and hated by the townspeople, but to provide a great service for below minimal payment scolding them for indecency and generalizations, and more than anything, whining about it, too.

The next half hour or so, is showing the village and collected samurai readying for defense (traps, positioning, and the like), and teaching the villagers how to defend themselves with a sword or spear. And a lovely romance too scandalous for public approval, this is the only part that would gain a significant amount if in color. The picturesque setting with its wonderful fall setting, with leaves on the ground, a small stream and presumed cherry blossoms for this great love story: Technicolor would have just made your heart sing.

But of all the things in this movie that are good, nothing beats the last hour, an all out battle: bandits versus the magnificent seven (yes, this is where that came from). I can't overstate it enough, of all the movies I've seen with battles or even wars in it, nothing, not even the brilliant western shootouts from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, can top this, not one second could be beaten by almost any other fights in the history of cinema. You may not like the long, suspense and plot building drama that precedes it, but no one can deny the masterpiece that is this battle. As a stand-alone movie, it would still be pretty good (and probably not too short, either).

Long movie short, Akira Kurosawa's rich character development and perennially likable personalities (it seems as though a different person wrote each part, they're really that built up), along with what is the all time greatest battle I've ever seen, easily and gracefully earns Shichinin no samurai a high place in anyone's movie collection. http://woltzpictures.wordpress.com/

Kurosawa is the greatest director that ever lived
Akira Kurosawa's masterpiece... The Japanese equivalent to Orson Welles' Citizen Kane.. I say it's just as good, if not even better. Not only Kurosawa's most well known film, but the most widely recognized Japanese film ever made. This movie will forever be known as a milestone in motion picture history.

The story revolves around a village that has become a group of bandits' common looting and pillaging ground. The villagers cannot take this any longer and go to town to hire warriors to defend the village from the bandits. A wandering ronin, Kambei (Takashi Shimura) agrees to help them and with his help, they recruit six others that agree to take the job. The seven samurai teach the villagers how to stand up to the bandits and defend themselves. Finally, when the time comes, they engage in a fierce battle with the attacking bandits.

About once in every 20 years or so we are gifted with a film that has the meaning, power, richness, and technique that The Seven Samurai has. I cannot urge anyone enough to see this film, the images are true cinematic poetry rich with so much emotion that I cannot even describe them in words. If you have never seen any of Kurosawa's works, then please see Seven Samurai... you will witness the true beauty, excellence and magic that the art form known as film is capable of.

the best ever
will never forget watching the extended cut at 2am in high school... such an eye opener. the scenes are perfectly crafted, and the camera work and lighting is on point. If you really like it, I advise getting the criterion edition, got it myself and truly is the best way to appreciate the film. as well, seven samurai is not only adventure/action but also a character driven narrative in which we can appreciate many subjects reacting to challenging situations. the epicness can be felt across the entire movie. the energy on the performances and the consistency within them are absolutely remarkable. This is truly a gem of cinema, in my opinion, alongside citizen kane and 2001 for the GOAT.
