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.
