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).

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.......

I had heard quite a lot of mixed comments about this film, some people thought it was the film of the year, while some really disliked it, but I do like Keanu Reeves so I thought I'd give it go anyway. I'm glad that I did.
Plot: It's about a group of proud Samurai who's master is killed and dishonoured and their status is reduced to Ronin. Only for them to rise up and seek revenge against the evil ruler and his magical witch, who are responsible
This film was panned by critics and became a huge box office flop but I really can't understand why. It's high adrenaline, action packed, exciting and has some absolutely mind blowing special effects. Ok Keanu Reeves does look a little out of place in a movie full of Japanese actors, playing out a truly Japanese story, but that is easily got past. There is quite a lot of Japanese language and subtitles in the film but most of it is in English so it's not too hard to follow.
The camera work and sound in this movie are what makes it really stand out, the unknown director really did a sterling job here and really immerses you into the magical world of the Ronin.
The acting for the most part is very good too and you really do develop a kind of kinship with some of the characters, which makes you really root for them and genuinely care about their fate.
All in all 47 Ronin is a fun, exciting, way to spend a couple of hours, it's visually stunning to look at and after a slowish start, the action and fantasy never lets up. Without giving too much away, it does leave the door open for a sequel but alas, due to its poor box office performance I doubt that we will ever see one.
8/10 Very good fantasy movie, harshly panned by the critics
