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

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.

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".

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.
