Seven Samurai 1954

Great film. A masterpiece that will be passed down forever, like Tolstoy's "War and Peace". However, it felt a bit long to me. I got tired. Still, I can't name all the great filmmakers who were inspired by this film. Spielberg, Coppola, George Lucas, Martin Scorsese, etc.

The original title of the film is Shichinin no Samurai.

Seven Samurai can only be described as magical piece of art.

  • Don't let the 210 minute tag on the movie scare you. It is worth the ride and experience.

  • Each samurai has a distinguished trait which makes them memorable and allows the audience to form a bond with them

  • The cinematography is simply outstanding especially when it comes to the scenes that include rain.

  • An easy to comprehend plot with thrilling action scenes is also what adds to the appeal of Seven Samurai.

  • Depicts the Japanese culture and relation between Samurai and Farmers in the 1600s.

Memorable movie quotes:
* This is the nature of war: By protecting others, you save yourselves. If you only think of yourself, you'll only destroy yourself.
* Danger always strikes when everything seems fine.

It's easy to see that this film had a big impact on other movies.
The way Kurosawa builds a shot is just beautiful.

When I was young, this is the film that taught me subtitled long b&w foreign films can be absolutely magical. This is forever on my list of favorites. Cinematic perfection.

I wonder why it has so good ratings? It is just 3,5 hours of goofy fight scenes. So boring and gringy to watch

All the others comments can to talk much better than mine, but I really like Toshiro Mifune character. He's great all the scenes where he are, my favorite is "that baby is me!" on the watermill burning

I loved this classic movie. It is epic and well worth watching for any lover of classic cinema. Don't be afraid of the length. I enjoyed listening to the music during the intermission while filling my popcorn bowl. And the English subtitles worked just fine. It would not worked dubbed, so I am glad that they did not dub the movie.

I was prepared to pay to watch the film, but was able to watch this movie for free during trial subscription at

Probably my favorite classical film. A milestone for cinematography and story telling.
Don't be afraid of the long running time and the long introduction of the characters in the first act. It all pays off in the end.
