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).

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.Read more ›
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'
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.....Read more ›

A tad disappointing. The original being a classic tale, and thus hardly in need of the rather over the top CGI presented here. Read morePublished 9 days ago by ririd69
