Akira Kurosawa is unquestionably the best known Japanese filmmaker in the West. This can perhaps be best explained by the fact that he is not so much a Japanese or a Western filmmaker, but that he is a "modern" filmmaker. Like postwar Japan itself, he combines the ancient traditions with a distinctly modern, Western twist.

The value of [Seven Samurai] depends not upon its spectacular effects but upon the basic human truths that are forged from the suffering of its characters and buried like spear-points Into the spectator's heart.

R.H. Gardner, Baltimore Sun

Responding to his sensitive, knowing direction, the actors have given inspired performances. Revealed in [Seven Samurai] is Kurosawa's talent for putting violent action on the screen, making it terrifically exciting to audiences.

Wanda Hale, New York Daily News

The outstanding feature of the picture is the photography. At times the camera angles are sensational.
