47 Ronin is Keanu Reeves latest movie. I haven’t seen him on the big screen in a while and this movie looks badass. There are a lot of good looking things that I saw in the trailer. The first of them being Keanu Reeves kicking some ass with a katana. The second is Hiroyuki Sananda. He’s one of my favorite actors and it’s awesome that both he and Keanu Reeves will be in this movie. The third awesome thing about this movie is Rinko Kikuchi. She’s also pretty awesome and i’m really excited to see what she will bring to the table in this movie. Any movie that’s based off of the Ronin is something that I have to watch. I’ve always been attracted to Japanese films, and their history. I love watching old Samurai movies and this one looks very promising so far.
47 Ronin is a fictionalized take on the story of the 47 ronin that took revenge on a court official that had their master commit seppuku. Keanu Reeves portrays a man named Kai, a half British half Japanese outcast that is called upon by Oishi, the leader of the 47. The 47 wants revenge on Lord Kira, who just so happens to have a witch on his side [Rinko Kikuchi].
The movie looks breathtakingly good and from what i’ve seen from the trailer the visual effects are awesome. I haven’t seen a good samurai flick since The Last Samurai and I hope this movie can live up to that kind of potential. 47 Ronin releases on Christmas Day and I plan on having my ass glued to a chair on that day. So far Christmas Day has a solid lineup of movies. I plan on seeing this and Grudge Match in the same day. I have high hopes for 47 Ronin and I hope when I do get a chance to see it i’ll be able to write a kickass review on it.
