Well now, guess I need to see this movie. Can't say no to Kurosawa, and it also sounds more fun and lighthearted than the average samurai movie. How else could Disney have approached the story while still giving her character an arc?

I haven't seem all of Kurosawa's films, with a few essentials that I have yet to watch (such as 'Ran'), but this is easily one of my favorite films of his. The review is spot on in that it may not have the impact or depth of, say, 'Seven Samurai' or even 'High/Low', it is probably the most rewatchable in terms of just fun entertainment. Something you can watch with the whole family.
