About “Seven Samurai”
One of the most beloved movie epics of all time, Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai (Shichinin no samurai) tells the story a sixteenth-century village whose desperate inhabitants hire seven out-of-work warriors to protect them from invading bandits.
This three-hour ride-featuring legendary actors Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura—seamlessly weaves philosophy and entertainment, delicate human emotions and relentless action into a rich, evocative and unforgettable tale of courage and hope.
