One of Japan's great contributions to cinema, the inspiration for spaghetti Westerns and the introduction of a new kind of film hero.

Great beginning and ending, but drags a bit in the middle.

It is still clearly the work of a master film-maker, the level of care apparent in every shot being enough to lift Yojimbo out of the generic morass.

Massive amounts of swordplay and treachery turn it into one of the most entertaining and best Kurosawa films.

As art-house film fare, Yojimbo should stand up well.
