Sight and Sound - 11/01/2003
"...There's no lack of stunningly choreographed action scenes....[With a] final, breathtaking showdown..."
Total Film - 12/01/2003
"...SANJURO exhibits all of Kurosawa's formal beauty while parodying the conventions of the Japanese action film..."
Uncut - 01/01/2004
"The climactic duel shows the great Japanese director at his controlled, no-frills best."

Plot Synopsis:

A first-rate Japanese adventure film about a group of naive, overly serious young warriors determined to take on their corrupt clan leaders with the assistance of a wise but grizzled samurai. The legendary Mifune (SEVEN SAMURAI) reprises his role as Sanjuro in this inventive and often hilarious sequel to Kurosawa's brilliant YOJIMBO.
