Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "47 Ronin" can't entirely paper over the void at its center, traceable partly to the shadowboxing of computer-aided filmmaking or studio tinkering.
Rotten: While the visuals are lovely to behold, this unremarkable version of the classic 18th century Japanese legend is stiff and uninvolving.
Rotten: An overlong, underwhelming movie now hitting theaters that certainly wasn't worth the wait.
Rotten: Solemn as a funeral march, humorless as your junior high principal, as Japanese as a grocery-store California roll, Keanu Reeves's let's-mope-about-and-kill-ourselves samurai drama has exactly three things going for it.
This fictional adaptation of the story of the 47 Ronin is great. It has beautiful scenery, the special effects are great and it has a mystic storyline. However, it does closely follow the story of the forty-seven Ronin.
Wasn't bad as many people thought it stays true to the real story with a little western adaption to it great cinematography fun as hell all around didn't want it to end
Give it a chance
I was expecting a disaster on the level of Twilight Breaking Dawn by the reviews. But if you know anything about the story, it is worth seeing. 47 Ronin has been told many ways to different generations over the course of centuries, and this is just a 21st century version of it. The ending is simply fantastic.
