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

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.

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.

Classic Samurai tale with light-hearted momentsReviewed bymeadow-3Vote: 10/10

I hadn't seen this film in MANY years -- and was amazed at how memorable the storyline was. And the story is easy to follow, if you'll just pay attention to the opening 10 minutes.

I can only wonder how this movie was embraced by Japanese theatergoers, in Kurosawa's use of humor and irony. If you loved Mifune's roughness in Yojimbo, you will appreciate "Sanjuro".

Great supporting cast. Includes many faces you'll recall, as well as the incomparable Tatsuya Nakadai and Yuzo Kayama. In fact, Nakadai won "Best Actor" honors that year in the Kinema Junpo Award.

Music was "off" but you can't have everything! Here's an interesting tidbit -- nearly 25 years later, both screenwriters, Kurosawa and Ryuzo Kikushima co-wrote "Runaway Train".
