Did the 7 samurai had a big influence on anime and action films?

In some anime series or movies there is this scene where two opponents are facincing each other in silence. This last for a few seconds before both opponents charge each other abruptly. We don’t see who had the first fatal blow but we see two ooponents facing away from each other before one falls. Did it come from the old movie, 7 samurai? Is the anime adaptation faithful to the movie?
