Seven Samurai

Seven Samurai ★★★★★

I just realised there’s nothing stopping me from giving this 5 stars.

At surface value this film seems like the kind of movie that would be the opposite of entertaining. It’s a black and white 3 hour long foreign film but against all odds it manages to be one of the most entertaining movies ever. 

The entire last hour of the film (especially the final fight) features some of the best action I’ve seen in a film. It feels way more rough real than any fight scene that Hollywood has ever made and it sets the benchmark of how action should be done.
