Viewed this last night and preferred it to the rather draggy "Yojimbo".
Great film. Wonderfully balances comedy with action.
Superb ending showdown! (which I also prefer to Yojimbo's lazy climax).
Watching Mifune's comic performance here makes me wonder if Tony Anthony was channeling him during the filming of his westerns. He makes the same exaggerated expressions and has the same funny way of speaking.

Thar she blows! Hehe. I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment, Firecracker. Sanjuro is definitely better than Yojimbo.

I like Yojimbo better.  I'd give Sanjuro an 8/10.

More of a Yojimbo fan myself as well, his playing of both sides is masterfully done and a pleasure to watch.

I never found Yojimbo to be draggy, and in fact preferred it to FoD. That's just me of course. What'd you like more about this?

I agree, Yojimbo is better (than Sanjuro and FoD).  I think it's marvelously acted and photographed, the music is great too.

I haven't seen all of Sanjuro, but what I saw didn't impress me as much as Yojimbo. Except the slow mo blood explosion. That was great.

Remake? WHY? Why top remake all the good movies?

This is an excellent humorous samurai film. And men, who the hell could be better than Mifune and Nakadai? Not to mention who could direct better than the Master...
