47 Ronin proves professional critics are morons!

Before writing my review I took the time to read the professional reviews done by so called movie critics. These people have forgotten what going to the movies is all about. Instead Kim Newman chose to talk about 'symmetrical compositions' and Peter Debruge states 'the film struggles to grab and maintain audiences’ interest' as if he knows what is going on in the minds of movie audiences everywhere. 47 Ronin is a story, and a great story at that. The movie does a great job of telling that story and also offering wonderful visual effects that all supported the story and did not detract from it. I thought this was what good movies are supposed to do?!?! IF you like great stories with themes such as samurai, honor, swords, magic, tragedy, hope, love, and yes epic battles. You want to see this movie. IF on the other hand you are an insufferable prime donne like the professional movie critics who rated this film. Stay home and go rent Titanic one more time!

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.

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.
