Yojimbo Reviews

Top Critic
March 4, 2013
A movie that is both a wow of a show and a masterpiece of misanthropy.
February 9, 2007
Action-packed, highly comic 1961 translation of Dashiell Hammett's Red Harvest.
February 9, 2006
If the plot sounds familiar, it's probably because Leone stole it for A Fistful of Dollars.
January 20, 2006
Even Eastwood's Man With No Name is inspired, perhaps, by the samurai in Yojimbo.

Despite the sometime appearance of the whole thing as a forthright travesty, it does have stretches of excitement and cinematic power.

Rousing, good story, told with vigor and visual excitement by Akira Kurosawa, and splendidly acted by Toshiro Mifune, this has ideal remake material for a Yank company.
