Carl Rinsch directs this reimagining of the Japanese tale about the revenge of the 47 Ronin starring Keanu Reeves. With the underhand machinations of their rival Lord Kira (Tadanobu Asano) blamed for the death of their master, a group of abandoned ronin recruit British-Japanese outcast Kai (Reeves) to help plan their revenge. Vastly outnumbered, but inspired by the teachings of Kuranosuke Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada), Kai and the other ronin engage in a bloody battle with forces under the command of Kira's loyal subordinate Mizuki (Rinko Kikuchi).

’47 Ronin’ is actually based on an old Japanese historical event when 47 samurai avenged the death and disgrace of their master, even if it marked them as ‘criminals.’ This tale is very well known and documented in Japan and people still visit the graves of the deceased in order to remember their commitment to their cause.

It’s been made into a film at least six times before, but this is the most ‘Hollywood’ version to date. For a start, we have Keanu Reeves as the lead character and it’s fair to say that no westerners took part in the actual event. Therefore, it’s safe to say that many liberties have been taken in this retelling. This point is hammered home by the inclusion of various mythological creatures our valiant exiled samurai encounter. And, I’m just guessing, but I’m pretty sure there weren’t any dragon-witches or giant ogres in Japan back then.

So, don’t expect a faithful re-telling of the historical event. But, do expect entertainment. I don’t know why, but ‘The Pirates of the Caribbean’ kept going through my mind while I was watching this. The whole affair sort of reminded me of Captain Jack Sparrow in the Far East. Every so often there’s a chase scene or a monster to fight and there are plenty of CGI backdrops for us to pretend are real. Perhaps the one thing that isn’t really included is an awful lot of fight scenes. I expected more ‘martial arts’ from a film about samurai, but there’s only a couple of swordplay scenes included.

All in all, it’s not a bad adventure film, but it’s kind of hard to think who its primary audience is. Like I said, it doesn’t have enough fights to be a martial arts film. It’s not ‘fun for all the family’ like Pirates of the Caribbean, so it’s more serious.

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 20 Jan. 2015
Format: Blu-ray
It’s easy to see why the much delayed and ridiculously expensive Hollywood version of 47 Ronin did so poorly at the box-office. Forget reimagining one of Japan’s most cherished stories as a special effects fantasy – plenty of Japanese versions of the tale have taken big liberties as well and the fantasy elements are relatively sparingly used – it’s the fact that it’s all so mediocre: not terrible, but not good either, stranded in a middle ground where everything is so vanilla and ordinary. You can see where this could have seemed like a good idea several rewrites and reshoots ago, and you can see where much of the money went even though the director does his best to hide it by shooting much of the film in close-up, but nothing really excites. Even the film’s three best action scenes are merely okay, and given that the film hired the best action editor in the English speaking world, Stuart Baird, you can bet that’s because a lot of the footage he had to work with was underwhelming. Despite coming from a commercials background, first-time director Carl Rinsch doesn’t exhibit a particularly arresting visual style, with only a scene in a haunted forest and cave showing a bit more imagination than the often rather perfunctory staging that’s the hallmark of much of the film.Read more ›

The film has received mixed reviews, I base my review on the films entertainment value.
I can say without question the film certainly entertained me.
'Kai' has grown up in the province of 'Ako' a Samurai settlement, his life had been spared
by 'Lord Asano'
'Kai' has always wanted to repay the gesture by devoting himself to 'Lord Asano's' service,
'Kai' a half-breed is not looked upon as an equal within the community, only the 'Lord'
himself and his daughter 'Mika' shows him any respect.
However when a treacherous 'Warlord' engineers with the help of a 'Witch' 'Lord Asano's'
death, subsequently throwing the 'Lords' son 'O'ishi' into a dungeon and keeping 'Kai'
captive and dispersing the remainder of the Samurai of 'Ako' across the lands.
After a year has past 'O'ishi' is released, he now seeks to avenge his fathers death, he'll
need to re-gather his scattered force and will need the help of once frowned upon 'Kai'
But when found will 'Kai' accept the plea of 'O'ishi' to help him face the enemy 'Lord'
and his 1000 strong force.
'Kai' has certainly learnt some additional fighting skills whilst in captivity.
Weapons will have to be found to arm the former 'Samurai' warriors to help them on a
seemingly suicidal mission to restore honour, avenge their 'Lord' and save 'Mika' from
her pending union with the treacherous 'Shogun' Lord,
There are only the 47 Ronin former Samurai to change the course of destiny.
This is an electric action-packed adventure, a tale with 'Monsters' 'Magic' Swords' 'Myths'
and 'Honour'
An exciting adventure that see's 'Keanu Reeves' return to an action-role.
Some Great 'Witch' sequences.......
Great use of Special-Effects. the film is a visual treat.....
