5.0 out of 5 stars Foregt the reviews - this is a great movie, 27 Jan. 2014
This review is from: 47 Ronin [Blu-ray] [2014] (Blu-ray)
First of all I thought this film was rather unfairly treated by reviewers at the time of its release. I went to the cinema to see it and loved it, so much so that I have pre-ordered the Blu-ray.

The story of the 47 Ronin is well-known in Japanese culture and has been performed in kabuki theatre for centuries. This re-imagining plays with the story somewhat, introducing the character of Kai (Reeves) and quest elements whilst following the outline of the original plot. Visually, the film is stunning and the special effects are exceptional (given the Director comes from a SFX background this shouldn't be surprising).

As others have said, this is sort of a Japanese-inspired version of Lord of the Rings complete with witches, quests and dragons and if you like fantasy-based films then 47 Ronin should appeal to you as well.
