Enjoyable movie, very well done visually. Always enjoy the honor of the samurai, and this film stayed true to that code. Well worth the price of admission

Surprisingly well done

Keanu surprised me with his performance in this role. The movie itself had enough plot material to have been even better (as good as The Last Samurai), but it falls a bit short of its potential. Keanu's acting was better than usual, and didn't make me want to smack him. He showed real emotional range.

Don't listen to critic reviews. This is an excellent movie!

Wow. I am shocked by the bad critic reviews. I thought this movie was excellent. Compelling story. Special effects support but don't dominate the story. The acting is a bit wooden at times, but it felt stylistically appropriate and didn't detract from the movie at all. I think it is an intentional nod to traditional Japanese form, but what do I know? Frankly this movie reminded me of one of the "Lord of the Rings" movies, Japanese style. It is a complete and intriguing universe. The cinematography and artistic direction feel coherent and well conceived. I feel like the characters were well developed and we understood their point of views by the end of the movie. I loved this movie. The time passed without notice while I was immersed in it. I'd see it again.

This was an epic film, the story was very touching and kept me wondering what was coming next. I would definitely recommend this film to a friend. I think the backgrounds used in the film were very realistic, the special effects were great, and the 3d was very well done with out being cheesy.

I really enjoyed this story; however, would have preferred a different ending. It's not for small kids under 13, as it has violence. The acting is very good.
