Go see the movie with an open mind. Ignore the inaccuracies in costuming, set, etc. and just take the movie in for what it is meant to be: a holiday action flick with special effects that appeals to a broad audience. Costumes - they were historically and culturally inaccurate but gorgeous! Set - Architecturally impossible but also beautiful. Casting - At least the credited cast were of Japanese descent avoiding the Memoirs of a Geisha debacle of using Chinese actors for the female leads. Finally, Keanu Reeves fans MUST GO see this. He is in just about every frame.

Seppuku felt like an option half way through

The premise was great but the execution fell flat and almost amateurish. Even some of the special effects/CGI appeared rushed and not fitting for big budget blockbuster. I expected more and was disappointed.

I thought it was going to be good, I was wrong.

Acting in this movie was horrendous. Might be in the top 100 worst movies. I think it was mostly dirrectors fault and script ... I don't think any actor could have pulled this one off. I am amazed it turned out so bad, they put so much money into it.
