I really wasn't expecting it to be good as the original version by Kurosawa and Mifune, but this is exceedingly bad. I guess I was expecting a new interpretation of the characters and updated action sequences. No such luck. This is almost a verbatim script of the original and worst of all it's as if the actors were trying to imitate the orginal cast down to facial expressions. I wasn't expecting the masterful camera work of Kurosawa, but this one's down-right amaturish. The actor playing Sanjuro just doesn't have the maturity, toughness, roughness, uncouthness of Mifune. When they cast a younger actor, they should have let him reinvent the character. Bottom line - watching this movie was like watching a mediocre high school production based on a classic movie.

I totally disagree with the negative review. I like this one at least as much as the original. They seem to have wanted to re-make the classic in color, and I think they succeeded admirably. I have many, many Japanese movies, and I have bought copies of this one to give to friends.
