Last Knights 
"Last Knights" by Yojimbo
2.5/4 stars

A devoted retainer and follower of a strict code of honour is forced to execute his master by a corrupt and cruel politician. Last Knights is a kind of westernised version of the kind of thing upon which Zhang Yimou and his peers made their name. The story is a variation of the story of the 47 Ronin and the presence of Morgan Freeman and Clive Owen lend some star power to what is otherwise a rather workmanlike swords and sandals pot boiler. It is reasonably atmospheric with some nice locations and decent action sequences but as a whole it feels very much like a Game Of Thrones wannabe; unfortunately the script lacks the witty dialogue, interesting characters and emotional resonance of the hit TV show which has raised the bar sky high for this type of thing. But it is executed efficiently enough to be a reasonably entertaining hack and slasher and is certainly much better than Hollywood's previous adaptation of the story starring the woefully miscast Keanu Reeves.
