47 Ronin



The outcast Kai (Reeves), illegitimate son of a British sailor and a Japanese peasant woman, joins a group of Ronin, led by Kuranosuke Oishi (Sanada), who seeks vengeance on Lord Kira (Asano), a ruthless man who killed their master and banished the group. The Ronin embark on a journey with challenges that would defeat most warriors.

Been getting quite a lot of positive reviews for this. Quite a big fan of Samurai movies also, so yeah.

Storyline wise, I think its pretty there. But somehow the ending is not really impactful enough. I shall not elaborate too much to prevent spoiler. But ya i just feel the ending could be even much better, currently its too “soft” for me lol.

For their CG, i love it! Love the environment, creatures etc. Even though the beast at the beginning might look a bit fake for me.

No comment on casts. Everyone did a pretty good job too! Especially Keanu Reeves, damn this guy never fail to disappoint me. On a side note, Mika looks pretty :p lol

If you love Samurai, this worth for your time definitely.
