Essentially a superficial film and that Kurosawa, for all his talent, is as prone to pot-boiling as anyone else.

By introducing comedy into the mixture and telling the tale from an atypical perspective, Kurosawa has differentiated The Hidden Fortress from nearly every similar feudal era Japanese epic ever committed to the screen. This is a masterpiece.
