IMDB Rating : 8.3
Rotten Tomatoes Rating : 94%
Leonard really doesn't have anything to say about this great movie, and only gives it three stars.
Akira Kurosawa directed Toshiro Mifune in some great samurai movies, but he also directed him in some modern day dramas. In this one a shoe executive's is presented with a ransom demand for his kidnapped son, but then finds out that the kidnappers took one of his employees' sons by mistake. The kidnappers don't care, and still want their money.
A great movie with great acting. Watching the work of two of the best people to ever work in film in an excellent movie is an exhilarating experience.
A three star rating for this great film is really pretty ridiculous.
