The movie was very good, special effects were quite good. Loved the story line behind the movie. Loved the ending, even though I thought that it would end a bit differently.

The movie had a few good action segments , but the expressions and feelings were just not there. I enjoyed it, but not enough to see it a second time. its a good way to spend a few hours to relax. id say its average.

This was an entertaining movie with good special effects, although I don't think you would miss much if you don't see it in 3D. The end was a bit anticlimactic but supposedly it is based off a true legend from Japan. Worth seeing.

I Dig Classical Samurai Movies & Still Liked It

By Sushumna

Well the original tale did not have a love interest, no half breeds, no shape-shifting witches, and no mystical creatures living in the woods... Personally I wish they would do a more classic telling of this story, ala 13 Assassins, but this was enjoyable nonetheless. Honestly there is not as much action as you might think -- but it didn't feel lacking to me (there was a guy griping about the lack of action behind me, apparently he thought it was going to be all out the whole movie). Personally I wish there was a bit more drama during the scene where the justice was delivered, but all in all it was better than I thought it would be. The characters could have a little more depth. The costuming and cinematography were outstanding. I might have to watch some of my old Samurai favorites on holiday break like Kagemusha, The Sword of Desperation, Twilight Samurai, etc... Nice to see Keanu back in action.

Worst Movie I've Ever Seen.

By adampaulbarker

This movie is a big let down in every way. The action in the movie is lacking. The plot is great but falls short on delivering on what could of been a very good movie. The first two minutes are great even with the bad acting, but after words your left with a crappy love story and no action for about an hour then another small action scene that doesn't deliver. Then more no action then the final fight which was so disappointing, and the main thing I was looking forward to the whole movie was someone anyone fighting the big ***awesome looking evil samuria guy and he gets killed in the most pathetic explosion instead. I'm really not a person to rate movies no matter how good or bad i think they are but this one was so horrible I decided to do whoever reads this a favor and hopefully save them from seeing it.
