    No wonder they got sued by ToHo. This is an utterly shameless ripoff of Yôjinbô, with a less likeable leading character and worse character development. I say ripoff, rather than remake, as it was made without permission almost immediately after Yôjinbô came out.

    Although this is still a great film--it's hard to bomb when you're cut-and-pasting one of the all-time greats--Kurosawa is by far the better director, Mifune the better actor. If you're planning to see this, do youself a favor and watch Yôjinbô first. The framework of the story is present in Fistful, but much of the substance is lost.
