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

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

it's by Kurosawa--what else do you want?Reviewed byjehruVote: 10/10

Sanjuro is another in a long line of purely classic films by Akira Kurosawa. This movie was made on a whim on the heels of the wildly successful Yojimbo, but Kurosawa doesn't simply whip out a movie to satisfy the audience; he creates another film masterpiece. This is a farcical comedy shot with the same brilliance as Ran--take a minute and notice how perfectly the image on the screen portrays what Kurosawa wants us to see. Nothing about this film is a mistake, something that he would want to do over. Watch this film!

An enjoyable escapist flick that is unsurprisingly well-crafted by Kurosawa.Reviewed byEternalityVote: 9/10

The sequel to Yojimbo, Sanjuro continues the journey of a lost but experienced samurai who's in search for nothing more than a decent place and food to stay and dine in. He encounters corruption in a small sleepy town, and decides to get involved. Similar to Yojimbo in plot structure, but it lacks the intensity of the prequel. Akira Kurosawa's directional style is evident, but this is a light-hearted film compared to his serious works like Seven Samurai, and Rashomon.

Toshiro Mifune is the other reason to watch Sanjuro (besides this being a Kurosawa work); he snarls to perfection here. The film has its humorous moments, often the result of sarcastic remarks made by Mifune's character. The artistic direction is excellent, although most of the cast are fairly one-dimensional, but that means Mifune's able to work his magic on the viewers full-time. The result is an enjoyable escapist flick that is unsurprisingly well-crafted by Kurosawa.
