The Synopsis for Sanjuro (1962) 720p

A wandering samurai, Sanjuro, is drawn into local politics. The Superintendent of a clan is plotting to take over the clan by implicating the Chamberlain in corrupt activities (activities the Superintendent is actually responsible for). Part of the plan involves killing off the Chamberlain's staff and, in protecting them, Sanjuro sides with them. The supporters are massively outnumbered so it will require all of Sanjuro's cunning and swordcraft to ensure the Superintendent does not succeed in his evil plan.

The Reviews for Sanjuro (1962) 720p

"...good swords are kept in their sheaths..."Reviewed byelvircorhodzicVote: 8/10

SANJURO is action drama and it is a sequel to Kurosawa's 1961 YOJIMBO.

Nine young samurai has decided to oppose corruption in their clan. A nephew of a lord chamberlain is among them. His uncle tore up their petition against organized crime and argued that maybe he himself was behind the crimes. Young men are confused. A ronin has overheard their plans and decided to help them. Initially, the samurai want to fight, but the odds are overwhelming, so the ronin hides the samurai, confronts and hits a few of the attackers and bluffs their leader into leaving. The grateful samurai ask what they can do for the ronin and he asks for only a small amount of money to buy food because he is starving. However, a chamberlain who can help expose them is kidnapped and his wife and daughter are imprisoned in the house...

Mr. Kurosawa did not offer a kind of wild samurai action in this movie. The harmonic plots are open at the beginning of the film. A crafty and satirical game comes after that. An experienced samurai has fallen into a very strange society and a corrupt political situation. Unlike Yojimbo, this movie is a bit frivolous and far more fun. Yojimbo is, with all segments, much better film.

The characters are impatient, outraged and unprofessional. Such relations provide a whole new dimension to the familiar story. Women are a calming factor in this film.

A mixture of pictures and sounds is excellent. Characterization is good, with one major flaw, because all the procedures are, more or less, predictable and a bit theatrical.

Toshiro Mifune as Sanjuro Tsubaki is just perfect for this role. That combination of a laziness and craftiness, satire and tradition in his character is simply amazing. He is kind of a hero that other protagonists in this film need and deserve.

The glory of ancient samurai comes to the fore at the end of the film.

entertaining but surprisingly dumbReviewed byCharles Herold (cherold)Vote: 7/10

This sequel to Kurosawa's brilliant Yojimbo is entertaining and amusing, but it's also kinda dumb, something that seems to have been missed by all the user reviews I've read here.

The premise is set up quickly and rather abruptly, as a group of samurai talk about their attempt to find an authority figure to rid their clan of corruption. Toshiro Mifune wanders in from a back room to tell them they are all idiots, then protects them by killing a whole bunch of bad guys.

The group of samurai are a comical bunch, wandering about like a bunch of newborn ducklings, and Mifune takes the role as their protector because that's what heroes do.

But his charges aren't the only idiots. Everyone in the movie is an idiot, except for Mifune and some peripheral women characters. The plot is pushed forward entirely by the stupidity of its characters, to the extent that it's a wonder any of them lived past puberty. While Yojimbo was a movie about a really smart guy tricking less smart people, Sanjuro is about astoundingly gullible people being fooled by the only person in the movie who isn't a half-wit.

Still, it's very likable and often funny, particularly in the case of a mellow prisoner and an unflappable mother.

The movie also has a whole, "it's terrible that so many people are being killed" moral that reminds me of the old TV series Kung Fu, which espoused peace while serving a steady stream of violence. Like everything else in this movie, it's pretty silly.

It's a fun movie, and if you liked Yojimbo and Seven Samurai it's worth checking this out as well. But watch Yojimbo and Seven Samurai first, because they are much better movies.

Better than most in the genre, even if not a 'masterpiece' for KurosawaReviewed byMisterWhiplashVote: 7/10

Sanuro, the sequel (or prequel, more likely a sequel though) to Akira Kurosawa's 1961 classic Yojimbo, brings us Toshiro Mifune to one of his most memorable characters, as he helps out (begrudgingly but, for the audience, funny way of help) with a group of would-be samurai trying to fight a corrupt man trying to gain power. With this film, Kurosawa delivers if not more than the same amount of violence (with one of his finest scenes of which towards the very end), and Mifune along with co-stars are believable and make for an entertaining ride. For those who are not familiar with Kurosawa and look to start, this and Yojimbo are the best starting points.

But to say that it is not one of Kurosawa's very best is not entirely a dis-service to him. One flaw for me was that the story was not very clear on the first viewing, or at least as clear as what I'm used to from him (then again, the samurai genre is one I've only started to dig into). But a second viewing brought it clearer, and was even more suspenseful and amusing. That it is not as satirical (or perhaps it is) than what I had heard is not a minus however. The best that can be said that it is highly watchable, and could grow on those looking for a samurai film with more based on character than on immediate, flowing blood-shed and carnage. The least that can be said is that it does not compromise artistry and thoughtfulness for mediocrity. Grade: A
