If your like me and you always wanted to see a new samurai movie in the theaters but you didn't see this and your thinking on buying or renting it,do yourself a favor and don't. You'll thank me. This movie is based on a true story but uses fantasy elements for what reason(I didn't find out during the picture, and trust me you won't either.) the movie doesn't have one.
In 47 Ronin(more like 47 boredom)Keanu Reeves leads the cast as Kai, an outcast who joins Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada), the leader of 47 outcast samurai. Together they seek vengeance upon the treacherous overlord who killed their master and banished their kind. To restore honor to their homeland, the warriors embark upon a quest that challenges them with a series of trials that would destroy ordinary warriors.
I say 47 boredom because it even though has some special effects(that are really not all that special)it's the most boring samurai and swordfighting movie you will ever see.The movie is like aching boy pain cause your body will beg you to go to sleep just by watching this film.
The characters, trust you just won't care,because this story has no structure or character development.
Look all I can say is this the biggest disappointment you will see, 47 ronin gets a one and a half out of five.
Not all Ronin are ill-thought of by history/legend, however: this film is a highly-fictionalized (complete with Witches, Magic and Monsters) retelling of a 18th century historical event/legend in Japan in which a group of Ronin - for some reason, including Keanu Reeves - carry out their revenge upon the man responsible for their lord's death over a year later: a story, indeed, that is even now celebrated every Dec 14th by the Sengakuji Temple.
15% isn't fair at all when it comes to a movie like this!!
Are The Critics saying it's bad because they hate Keanu Reeves?
It Takes More than one critic to figure out the Tomatometer...
I seen this movie and there is nothing wrong with it.
Only the CGI with the dragon was trash but the rest of the movie did a superb job. I felt bad that the critics dislike the movie and it's not their fault.
This isn't even the User's fault either.
All the time i try and think about this movie it makes me think Keanu Reeves did a stunning performance in every level.
The Other websites can't conclusure to this movie becoming so low. godamnit!
But I can't stand to see anything good but rotten on the outside.
