The Reviews for Samurai Assassin (1965) 1080p


First-class FilmReviewed bysmarth_baliVote: 9/10

A first-class film that excels in script, cinematography and acting. It is difficult to name a lot of films that are so well conceived of and executed. The plot is amazing and the twists are well-crafted. The narrator seems an imposition at the start but as the film progresses it only adds to the mood. I found the movement (pace) of the film delightful, juxtaposed between the swift and the languid. Of course, for most of us outside the idiom of Japanese cinema the acting maybe described as melodramatic, but that's pretty much the norm there. And how can anyone not comment on the film's last scene - the snow, the blood, the twist of fate, the camera moves like an assassin itself. I highly recommend it.

Samurai classicReviewed bycolayaVote: 10/10

I guess it's a mystery why this film is not well-known. As I write this, there are only other 1,338 IMDb users that have rated it. A small group of fortunate viewers. If you have not seen it and you are reading this---perhaps you are exploring the possibility because of some samurai or classic movie interest?---then just watch it. It's just impossible to like classic samurai action and not to love this movie. And if you are new to classic samurai movies, this is a good start. All major ingredients are here.

But if you need reasons. Well, what's not to like? Mifune at his best. The beautiful cinematography of Okamoto. An all-star cast from every major samurai movie (the only one missing is Nakadai). Political intrigue in the decay period of the samurai cast. A series of Rashomon-like flashbacks for learning, slowly, the dimensions of a tragedy. Spectacular samurai action in the snow. A drum that beats, slowly, fate. And endless themes to think about: fate vs. caprices of life, love vs. duty, friendship vs. personal ambition, the quest for finding ourselves a place in the world, and so and so.

The other mystery is the rating of this movie. It should be above 8,0 by all means, to say the least. I disagree with other reviewers that talk about a "convoluted" plot. I found the plot easy to follow, despite the names involved. And the director is very efficient and artistic for delivering the story in a 2-hour mark. It just needs to build tension for the great finale. It's a matter of enjoying.

Irony at it's bestReviewed byProphet-9Vote: 9/10

I bought this film about a year ago and just got the opportunity to watch it last night. This film was beautiful brutality, simplistic complexity, unjust justice, and traditional tragedy. The sword duels are quick and brutal, the battle scene is long and horrific. The film jumps through time and space at a frantic pace with out warning. And yet the plot is slowly revealed through the hurried pace. I highly recommend this film that examines the complex psyche of Norii the Ronin. My only warning is that there is a lot of dialogue and it wears a little thin at some times. And the subtitles go by so fast at times it calls for some rewinding. The action is so fast in some parts you will want to watch in freeze frame. One scene looked so real, I would almost swear that they actually had to kill the guy. Go see this film now.
