When farmers hire samurai to help them defeat bandits in Akira Kurosawa’S masterpiece Seven Samurai, there is a lot of swordplay and many vicious duels.

Samurai Kyuzo and an unnamed bandit are two of the best examples of this type of dynamic in the works. The fight takes place in the middle of a field, far from the other participants in the conflict, making it feel like a private duel. Like a zen master, Kyuzo never lets the bandit get the better of him in battle. He stares at the bandit directly in the eyes with each strike, eventually frightening his adversary into submission.

The Three Musketeers, the classic novel by Alexandre Dumas, has had numerous film adaptations, but Richard Lester’s is by far the most well-liked.
