I say "Go" it was a great story line and scenery was beautiful. Keanu did a great job and fits in these types of roles. I think the cast did a great job. I think Critics do not know what they are talking about and never go by their recommendations.,

I went to this movie on Christmas Day with my son-in-law and two grandsons (17 y.o.). I thoroughly enjoyed it. I enjoyed the story and the tradition that it shared. There was a good balance or fantasy and reality. I was also pleased that this film did not let Keanu Reeves' character steal the stage. "Honor" as never seen before.

What a bad movie! The costume director obviously knows nothing about the difference between Japanese and Chinese dress and the pathetic repeat of the Last Samurai dialogue, horse landscapes (which are southern Chinese by the way) with same music. Nothing original to this lousy production. It was a compost of The Last Samurai, the Gladiator, and ego manical geeks intent on making computer simulation "real" acting. I lived in Japan and visited their tombs; their story and legend is well known--this was not the 47 Ronin. And, certainly NOT Japanese!

I hope more people go see this. It is an excellent story, great imagery, amazing fight scenes, and beautiful soundtrack. As a movie goes, I learned a lot from the story, things I didn't know about before, related to the Ronin story. Go see! You won't be disappointed!

Theatre was full and the movie was quite enjoyable.

We thoroughly enjoyed this fairy tale rendition of the 47 samurai/ronin, Chushingura. Keanu Reeves did a bang up job and so did Hiroyuki Sanada. The japanese cast was excellent and the Witch was predominantly good. The staging and scenery was wonderful. Costuming was beautiful. It requires the audience to accept all the various cultural behaviors, places, characterizations to make it work. It's a fairy tale that makes the true story of Chushingura palatable for the West. This movie isn't for smaller children.
