4.0 out of 5 stars Loyal 47 Ronin, 31 Jan 2011
This review is from: Loyal 47 Ronin [DVD] [1958] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This is a good film which is not too dissimilar to Kon Ichikawa's version. In fact I would say that Kon Ichikawa's film is a slightly improved remake this. This film follows the standard storyline of the good and honest Lord Asano making a moral stand against corruption in the bakufu personified in Kozukenosuke Kira and the division between good and evil is clearly defined throughout the film. Kon Ichikawa's film is slightly more ambiguous about the vertue of the 47 which is slightly more appealing owing to the fact that the truth of what actually happened between these two men, other than the assault, is not known. The sword play isn't exceptional but the acting is first rate. This is a good version of the 47 Ronin story which any fan of classic samurai films would be happy to have in their collection.
