Critic Reviews for Samurai I: Musashi Miyamoto
Whether he is weeping, fighting, making love, [Toshiro Mifune] is consistent with the character of Musashi. As often as he is on the screen, you'll never have enough of him.
Mifune, the archetypal on-screen samurai, imbues his [performance] with nuanced internal conflict, self- loathing externalised with flailing violence and misdirected anger.
Ingaki does a nice job in blending together battle sequences with plot and character development.
Audience Reviews for Samurai I: Musashi Miyamoto
I must be in the minority, but I think this is a really dull movie chalk full of wasted talent. The poor and uninspired direction really ruin the movie, no time is spent on the glorious landscapes, sets and costumes. That would be acceptable if the story was taken as the focus, but even that lacks intrigue. In the end, it's a very jumbled movie. Toshiro Mifune is really the only part that I would say is above average, he always manages to be an interesting screen presence.
good film. see mifune defeat 50 swordsman using only a stick! ...is it just me or is he still playing the fool from seven samurai? pt 1 of a trilogy...so that's 3 i'm in the midst of lol. this one covers takezo's origin and the beginning of his training as a samurai
It was hard to get my hands on, but I finally got it on dvd! Mifune is the best choice for the role of Musashi Miyamoto. This is the firs part of a trilogy.
