The critics who gave this movie crap are smoking crack. This movie was very well done! A fantastic story, well played roles, very striking visuals. I enjoyed it very much.

Very Slow

It wasn't what we were expecting. It was very slow. If we had to do it again...we wouldn't have wasted our money, and would have rented it instead!

We enjoyed this movie. I will say it didn't live up to what I had built in my head. The first half of the movie moved pretty slow. But all in all we enjoyed the movie.

47 Ronin/1 Reason Not to Go

SPOILER ALERT! I did NOT like the ending. It was asinine. Too hard core to reward heroes with death because the emperor was wrong! Very disappointed in this film. Should have waited to see it on Netflix.

Beautiful colors, so-so CGI, but worth your time

This is "based" on a story about a group of Samuri who fight to revenge the wrongful death of their tribal lord. Interesting look at Japanese culture, and the subject is handled respectfully throughout. The subplot is how the "half breed" (Keanu) lives as a pseudo slave because he is not pure. This is where the story falls short: he is the lead character, yet you never really find out much about his parents. He was abandoned, and there is one sentence of information that is revealed about 3/4 of the way through the movie. The colors used in the film are exquisite-- I'm going to guess they are enhanced -- and are used to show good/evil contrasts, as well. Keanu is used well here; not a lot of spoken words for anyone, really, but we all know that Keanu plays best in action flicks (I'm a huge Matrix fan) that do not feature monologue or soliloquies. In summary, the film is prettier than it is "good," but enjoyable.
