Stunning print, classic movie that bears repeated showings and apparently very good extras (which I have not yet had the opportunity to check out). Nice to follow a viewing of "Seven Samurai" with "The Magnificent Seven." If you have a good big screen TV, this iteration is a noticeable improvement from the previous and now superseded Criterion edition.

Product Overview

"One of the most beloved movie epics of all time, Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai (Shichinin no samurai) tells the story of a sixteenth-century village whose desperate inhabits hire the eponymous warriors to protect them from invading bandits. This three-hour ride - featuring legendary actors Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura - seamlessly weaves philosophy and entertainment, delicate human emotions and relentless action into a rich, evocative, and unforgettable tale of courage and hope."

Reviews
ReviewSource TV Guide
Review "Much imitated, still unsurpassed. By critical consensus one of the best movies ever made, The Seven Samurai covers so much emotional, historical, and cinematic ground that that it demands to be viewed over and over again."

Review "Rich in detail, vivid in characterization, leisurely in exposition, this 207-minute epic is bravura filmmaking -- a brilliant yet facile synthesis of Hollywood pictorialism, Soviet montage, and Japanese theatricality that could be a B western transposed to Mars."
