Unfairly trashed samurai epic delivers on all levels. It has a huge budget, so the special effects and technical credits are all first rate. It has a very good story and some excellent acting from its mostly Japanese cast. Keanu Reeves is also fine and delivers a solid performance. An excellent mx of action and fantasy, this movie definitely deserves a second chance as home viewing after its failed theatrical release.

Keanu Reeves is not the greastest movie actor ever but he is likeable in really live.47 Ronin. Okay the critics are saying this is the worst movies of the year but I didn't really hate it like the critics, the visual effect's are cartoonest and the acting is a bit werid. and this movie will get a 3/5 star's "not as Bad as people say".

this movie was... pretty silly, frankly. I was a lot happier with how The Wolverine represented japan than this, oddly enough. but it was not without its pleasures... some lovely scenery and costumes and there's one part with a kabuki play which is pretty cool. I think possibly what bothered me the most was that the women were done up with western-style make-up. it's sad to see a spectacle movie like this that clearly cost a ton of money and required an army of people to create, and have it turn out so... lackluster. but I suspect the nytimes is correct when they suggest that a LOT of compromises had to be made to keep the studio happy in exchange for staying true to the story's ending.

"47 Ronin" by Yojimbo

When a rival lord betrays and causes the death and shame of their master, a group of samurai reunite in exile to plot their vengeance and restore his family honour. I'm something of a fan of samurai films, the classics of Kurosawa being the standard by all others shall be measured. I of course did not expect 47 Ronin to be in their league, but it still managed to disappoint on every level. It, like 300, is more like the history and culture of an ancient and venerable society transformed into a computer generated theme park ride. Keanu hasn't looked this out of place since his absurd casting as Jonathon Harker in Dracula and the cast deliver its clunky, dim-witted dialogue at various levels of hammy scenery-devouring. The CGI is of the expensive but totally unconvincing style and the fact ...

keanu being keanu in ths true story fantasy

Keanu reeves plays a outcast among a family of tradition and honour who ends up becoming part of the 47 samurai who set out ton a mission of rescue and revenge and honour them selves once more in this fantasy/apparently true story movie
i quite liked this movie though i didn't like the ending but its apparently a true story so who am i to argue,
Keanu reeves is playing the same role he always plays. dead pan hardly speaks no emotion role. he is a. actor i like but comon keanu act differently please just once,
This is not the best movie its not great and maybe its not very good but it kept me watching and kept me interested but i wouldn't watch it again. one thing i will say is there is some great scenes but they dont last long enough ,it flips fast from one to another. seemed a was...

Pretty, But Not Much Else

While I was aware that this movie was not going to be a traditional samurai film, I was curious enough to want to see how the legendary story of the 47 Ronin would be interpreted by Hollywood. So it was a good thing that I braced myself for disappointment. The decision to make Keanu Reeves one of the lead characters was most likely an attempt to make the film more relatable to a western audience, which was understandable from a marketing perspective. The addition of the fantasy element was a largely baffling, to be honest, even if Rinko Kikuchi did an awesome job playing that crazy kitsune. All in all the changes only served to confuse those not familiar with the samurai genre and alienated those who were. A shame, because the concept could have been awesome in the right hands.
