One of Kurosawa's best films and certainly one of his most entertaining. The film skillfully balances action sequences (see the realistic and ponderous duel scene) with lighthearted comedy. It's also fun to watch this film and point out similarities to Star Wars, since Lucas admittedly borrowed a lot from the Hidden Fortress.

A stunningly beautiful black and white movie with very high contrast and sweeping camera angles. I enjoy this movie the best of all of Kurosawa films because of the personalities of the peasants. If you look closely, you can see the beauty.

Another top-notch action film from Akira Kurosawa. While not as sweeping as some of his other epics, Hidden Fortress still holds wonder and adventure for all those who watch it.
