Details

Sanjuro rides again in this thrilling, fast-paced sequel to Yojimbo. Toshirô Mifune’s cynical, battle-weary warrior returns to become a reluctant mentor to a group of nine dangerously naive young samurai fighting a corrupt official. The strong, silent Sanjuro tries to instill some wisdom in his gullible disciples in a jocular adventure that gleefully upends the solemn conventions of a typical samurai tale. But wisdom comes at a price and the gory final duel proves that there are times when only a fight to the death will resolve matters. 

Satirical Samurai action of the highest order.
