Akira Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai (1954) 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.

Kurosawa's intention of making his first period film "entertaining enough to eat" is brought to that palpable condition through [Toshiro] Mifune's endlessly watchable peasant warrior.

The action scenes in this movie are virtually unequaled by any other movie in history, even if some of the 'waiting-around' scenes grow tiresome.

Besides the well-manned battlescenes, the pic has a good feeling for characterization and time.
