  1. gld48's rating of the film Yojimbo

    Mifune is a low-key comic savage.

  2. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Yojimbo

    Nulla più dell'eleganza donata da Kurosawa alle inquadrature di questo capolavoro può spiegare l'immenso genio del Maestro giapponese. La regia riesce a mettere la cornice a delle inquadrature strabilianti per bellezza ed efficacia, sia nel giocare con le ricche profondità di campo, sia nel sostenere la narrazione del soggetto. E che soggetto. Uno dei più bei film che abbia mai avuto l'immenso piacere di vedere.

  8. Tibulle85's rating of the film Yojimbo

    Un Kurosawa avec quelques longueurs (mais bon, ça vaut quand même 4 étoiles, c'est du Kurosawa!). Le vrai coup de maître sera la suite de ce film: le magistral Sanjurô!

  9. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Yojimbo

  10. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Yojimbo

    Absolutely hilarious and dramatic; and impeccably directed. Every shot is practically a portrait. Toshiro Mifune plays the ultimate badass samurai-for-hire. One of Kurosawa's best.

  11. Viginti_tres's rating of the film Yojimbo

    Interestingly actionless movie where Mifune-as-Akira sits around trying to conceive of interesting ways for people to come to blows. This isn't fun in the way I was expecting, but the meta/political reads are more interesting.

  12. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Yojimbo

    Better than a Fistful of Dollars. Probably best contender against Seven Samurai for my personal fave Kurosawa film.

  13. MistaRichard's rating of the film Yojimbo

    I actually thought this was going to be my first Kurosawa to be rated below five stars... how silly of me... Never have I connected so much with a character I knew absolutely nothing about and with a story completely outside of what I was expecting. Toshirō Mifune is incomparable and this might just be his coolest role.

  14. dordairobert's rating of the film Yojimbo

  15. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film Yojimbo

    Fantastic film, exceeded every expectation. I can see why it has such a huge legacy. Kurosawa manages to make us laugh, gasp and cheer all in the same film. A film which demonstrates the intelligence of its protagonist through actions rather than through contrivance and dialogue. A must-see classic for everyone.

  16. FISCHER's rating of the film Yojimbo

    Superbe chef-d'oeuvre du réalisateur qui décrypte avec sagacité et talent les méandres et les fourvoiements de la nature humaine sans cesse déchirée et déchirante. www.cinefiches.com

  17. Alex Holland's rating of the film Yojimbo

    Kurosawa's lighter western influenced film, may lack the epic 3 hour scope of Seven Samurai or even the adventurous spirit of The Hidden Fortress, but it is regardless, an entertaining film. Boasting a great performance from kurosawa veteran Toshiro Mifune, as well as classic kurosawa black humor, and exquisite wide-screen compositions. My only gripe is that the film can be a bit talky in sections, but that's minor.

  18. Faustgelopoulos's rating of the film Yojimbo

  19. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Yojimbo

    3-4. Is it odd to say this is one of the sweeter Kurosawa movies I've come across? His usual philosophy is on full display, epitomized by Sanjuro, the nameless wanderer. But there's an emotional core, the relationship between Sanjuro and Gonji, that blooms throughout, and we're eventually rewarded with a display of honest caring on Sanjuro's part as our climax. I think it's distinct for Kurosawa in that respect.

  20. DenoResandono's rating of the film Yojimbo

    One of the Akira Kurosawa's timeless masterpiece. He took an inspiration from western genre for this movie. Toshiro Mifune is a perfect actor to potray Kuwabatake Sanjuro - a wandering ronin and master swordsman. He's a perfect example of a perfect bad-ass. Don't forget its beautiful cinematography...

  21. Josh Lowe's rating of the film Yojimbo

    Visual clarity has never looked so good! Fits neatly into my books as a masterclass in contrast and composition.

  22. flalorm's rating of the film Yojimbo

    mifune y nakadai, mis favs

  23. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Yojimbo

    Toshirô Mifune is the definition of badass in this highly entertaining Akira Kurosawa film!

  24. Nolan Barth's rating of the film Yojimbo

    Where do I even begin with Yojimbo? This film reminds me of why I love cinema. Akira Kurosawa is a master craftsman. His direction in this film is nothing short of brilliant. It is just an absolute joy to watch Toshiro Mifune on the big screen. Yojimbo is one of the greatest films ever made. If you haven't seen this before, I implore you, go see it right now! Stop what you are doing and go see Yojimbo!
