Cool Movie. I really liked how there were Seven of them.

Great movie. I can see why it's an acclaimed classic, but I did have some trouble with it.I do love my classics, but Seven Samurai is one of the few movies whose age somewhat had an effect on me. Other classics such as Hitchcocks have aged remarkably better that this movie.Other than that it did suffer from it's feature length. Still a must see for any movielover though.

The 208 minute run time didn't really feel all that long to me. (I was actually hoping that it wouldn't end!) Masterfully crafted with one of the best stories and some of the most memorable characters ever. A truly remarkable film.

The pinnacle of Eastern cinema and a gem that will live on forever.
Finally saw this movie, a good movie with a great final battle and some great characters but a bit let down.
I know right. This film doesn't even feel like 4 hours, it's that good.
I thought this was a great movie, really long though. I enjoyed all of the samurai characters and thought they were really fleshed out. This should be up there with the godfather and starwars as movies you have to watch.
