It's good, but it's no Seven Samurai.
most people don't realize Kurosawa based films such as Seven Samurai and Yojimbo on inspiration he got from viewing the American westerns of John Ford. The samurai genre directly imitated and was influenced by the western.
Im a huge fan of Shichinin no samurai (Seven Samurai), on which this movie is based. So i was kinda hesitant to watch this to be honest. But now that i've watched it, i really liked it... alot.
Sure it's not as good as Seven Samurai, but it is still very much a great movie.
In fact it is now one of my favorite Westerns for sure.
