Did You Know?


The episode begins with an unusual title card, specifically mentioning Akira Kurosawa, an influential film director greatly admired by George Lucas. The original Star Wars was very much inspired by the works of Kurosawa, particularly the 1958 movie The Hidden Fortress (1958). Another Clone Wars episode, "Lightsaber Lost," is a nod to Kurosawa's work - the 1949 film, Stray Dog (1949). "Bounty Hunters" is the clearest tribute yet to Kurosawa, and his legendary movie Seven Samurai (1954). Its tale of a beleaguered village hiring mercenaries for protection against brigands has inspired a host of movies -- most famously the American remake, _The Magnificent Seven_, as well as comedies like ¡Three Amigos! (1986) and A Bug's Life (1998). An early storyline in the Star Wars Marvel Comics series in 1978-1979 has a similar story, with Han Solo leading a group of hired guns to protect a village threatened by bandits. See more »

Akira Kurosawa's 7 Samurai
7 July 2012 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

I would enjoy this episode if I hadn't seen Akira Kurosawa's 7 Samurai ( Shichinin no samurai), if I didn't notice that several episodes are pastiches of other classics as this one, if I hadn't confirmed that many episodes are what we call in Portuguese "encher (fill) chouriços (sort of sausage)", metaphorically meaning to fill something just for the appearances. As a 4 years old veteran fan of the original theatrical Star Wars, my heart was broke when the new episodes came to cinema, when noticing my imagination created from the missing links of the original story were filled as I said, as a "chouriço" with pastiches of other movies. It's not a Tarantino's recycling geniality, it's the inability of creating a strong plot in dedication to the genial original Star Wars storytelling what was missing from the original beautiful and old Greece mythological and Freudian story. Perhaps for the young jedi fans it seems innovative, but for this old jedi the force isn't indeed with the cloak of the new special effects.
