Seibei and Ushitora are gangsters looking for a bodyguard. Some nice lines from the film - “Kids these days have gone mad.” “He died as recklessly as he lived.” Unfortunately, the lack of character development and better plot structure made this movie not as enjoyable as the rest of the director’s efforts. Some scenes felt really scripted and a bit dragging. A movie about money, gangsters and violence. Score, cinematography and action sequences were entertaining, if the same could be said with the storytelling direction. Yojimbo brings in the laughs and action while bringing in the western aura with the use of samurai warriors.

A Western transplanted into Japanese culture. The use of Western elements in story structure, characters, and lighting/sound is brilliant. Mifune is at his best here as the lone samurai warrior and the film skillfully, as with most Kurosawa films, blends humor and adventure.

The first of the wandering samurai films is shorter and lighter in tone than other Kurosawa films. This is the one I would recommend anyone looking to get into Japanese cinema to start with. Mifune embraces the role and is fun to watch.

I actually liked this movie. It has a fun plot, and Mifune is great as always as the Samurai Warrior.
