A great aspect of the film is that you can scenes such as the long-take hallway fight scene one and the scene with the ants crawling out of the body of Oh Dae Su.
Pulp Fiction 3/20/15
The fact that the film is considered to be so overrated just shows how great the film is.
Taxi Driver 3/15/15
The way the film creates a new level is the mood and atmosphere of the film.
For those just getting into Kurosawa this isn't much of a first film, but once you understand his brilliance make sure to come back to what I think is the pinnacle of his career- a undoubtful favorite of mine.
And it isn't even one of those 'so-bad-they're-good' films.
Not only that, I could see him throughout the film trying different styles in order to adapt to certain scenes, which worked surprisingly well.
The Italian Job 12/20/14
One of my favorites scenes in the film is the opening scene where the overall mood is set.
