Genuinely epic in scale and tone, Kurosawa’s hugely influential samurai movie is a towering achievement. One of the greatest action movies ever made.

When 16th-century farmers whose village is repeatedly attacked by merciless bandits ask an elderly, masterless samurai (Shimura) for help, he hesitantly agrees and assembles a band of warriors to defend and train the villagers... Boasting terrific performances, superb camerawork, and expertly mounted battle sequences, Seven Samurai is undoubtedly one of the greatest action movies ever made. Moreover, in its rich attention to detail, its vivid characterisations and its sorrowing acknowledgement of life’s injustices, it recalls the profound masterpieces of Homer and Shakespeare.
