Seven Samurai, The ( Shichinin no samurai ) 
The Seven Samurai review
4/4 stars

A story of decent hard working farmer’s being pestered by bandits. They seek help from a samurai. A leader was named Kambei Shimada (Takashi Shimura) was first recruited. After witnessing a rescue by Kambei of a child, Katsushirō Okamoto (Isao Kimura) is interested in being a disciple. Gorōbei Katayama is recruited by Kambei and is a skilled archer. A former lieutenant, Shichirōji (Daisuke Katō) is also included. Gorōbei recruits Heihachi Hayashida (Minoru Chiaki) and while a skilled samurai Kyūzō (Seiji Miyaguchi) joins the group. A personal favorite of mine, Kikuchiyo (Toshirō Mifune) is a hot-headed character who enjoys women and mocking the Samurai way of life. Kambei strategizes in killing the bandits while getting assistance from the male farmer’s. The picture’s screenplay is one of the best onscreen. Some of the lines: Kambei – “This is the nature of war. By protecting others, you save yourself. If you only think of yourself, you’ll only destroy yourself.” “Once more, we have survived.” I was surprised the film had humor despite its mood, so many philosophical dialogues and amazing camera work. The length did not bother me since every beautiful scene fit the film. Great performances all around from the supporting cast and leads. A stunning epic in the truest sense and one of the most influential foreign films created. Great character build-up just makes you wanting more for each protagonist. The Seven Samurai is a brilliant movie of war, compassion, friendship and persistence.
