Description

Carl Rinsch directs this reimagining of the Japanese tale about the revenge of the 47 Ronin starring Keanu Reeves. With the underhand machinations of their rival Lord Kira (Tadanobu Asano) blamed for the death of their master, a group of abandoned ronin recruit British-Japanese outcast Kai (Reeves) to help plan their revenge. Vastly outnumbered, but inspired by the teachings of Kuranosuke Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada), Kai and the other ronin engage in a bloody battle with forces under the command of Kira's loyal subordinate Mizuki (Rinko Kikuchi).

"47 RONIN’s weird, cross-referential imagery is enough to make it watchable." -- Grade: B
Ignatiy Vishnevetsky (27 Dec 2013, )
Hollywood Reporter
"Kai's most excellent swordsmanship is demonstrated in a frenetic hunt scene..."
David Rooney (23 Dec 2013, )
Variety
"47 RONIN rivals the epic martial-arts films of Tsui Hark or Zhang Yimou in terms of sheer spectacle, bringing a dark, almost gothic feel to the Eastern environments..."
Peter Debruge (23 Dec 2013, )
