Even lesser Kurosawa is still Kurosawa. The main characters weren't very interesting, especially the two peasants. And as usual, humor in Kurosawa films doesn't really translate well. But still, it's an exciting action adventure film.

Slightly long. Minor characters good, but can definitely see how in George Lucas's hands they became insufferable.

Way funnier than I was expecting and the locations are breathtaking. But, in the end, you're watching because it's Kurosawa and what can I say about Kurosawa that hasn't been said before? He's a genius.

Mifune is of course awesome and always such a magnetic presence on screen. Uehara is great too, constantly posturing and posing and not at any point outdone by Mifune. The endless whimsy and foolish greed of the two peasants (who are still superb) is a little wearing at times and means that along with the simple story this feels a little weightless compared to Kurosawa at his best. It may not punch weight with Kurosawa's very best, but is full of great set pieces and is a load of fun.

This movie has like 1 or 2 minor flaws, which by Kurosawa standards makes it a total piece of garbage. By ordinary movie standards, however, it is still great.

not necessarily my favorite Kurosawa but it's a fun, rock-solid adventure movie with some very good performances.

Half comedy, half adventure, frequently silly. Makes some amusing observations about greed, but it's mostly caught up in being fun in a classic "movies are great entertainment!" kind of way. There's nothing wrong with this approach, but in this case I sometimes got bored. It's pleasing to look at, but it's also a bit long and full of dead areas. Still, Toshiro Mifune is great, the story is likable, and Misa Uehara's stone cold stares are hilarious.

The film should have ended with the princess singing, rather than the hokey crap of the peasants. It was especially these peasants that severely lacked dimension, with their antics becoming annoyingly repetitive. The plot and themes went all over the place and despite touching on some interesting and beautiful moments it would have been better if these were structured towards achieving cohesion and congruence.
