Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 04/26/1988
"...Witty and surprisingly reflective....The result is a good little action picture with plenty of smarts and a nonchalant air..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/19/2001
"...Akira Kurosawa's THE SEVEN SAMURAI is not only a great film in its own right, but the source of a genre that would flow through the rest of the century..."
USA Today - 05/11/2001
"...THE SEVEN SAMURAI is still a movie that matters..."
Premiere - 12/01/2003
"...[A] forceful action movie, perhaps most startling because its heroes never lose sight of their honor and humanity..."
New York Times - 09/05/2006
"[S]till one of the most stirring adventure stories in the movies..."
Rolling Stone - 09/21/2006
4 stars out of 4 -- "[A]n adventure film with a complex emotional core -- that Hollywood has been imitating for years."
