Summary A grand-scale adventure as only Akira Kurosawa could make one. A general charged with guarding his defeated clan’s princess as the two smuggle royal treasure across hostile territory. Accompanying them are a pair of bumbling, conniving peasants who may or may not be their friends. This rip-roaring ride is among the director’s most beloved films and was a primary influence on George Lucas’s Star Wars. Delivers Kurosawa’s trademark deft blend of wry humor, and breathtaking action.
