User reviews on 47 Ronin
A visually stunning movie. It doesn't deserve the lousy ratings from the . It's about things that don't seem to be so important these days, things like honor, sacrifice, and love. It's a great action film. Don't listen to the jaded critics. Judge it for yourself.
At least 4 1/2 stars!
I love martial arts films and was quite excited to see this one on the big screen. I was a bit doubtful about Keanu Reeves starring in it but I have to say that he did a pretty good job and I had a good time watching this film. I know that die-hard fans will probably find a lot of flaws in this film but I am not that critical and I thought the film was pretty entertaining overall. It was well made and I really liked the action scenes and the story was good. The special effects were awesome and the film looked great visually, I was quite impressed. Overall, if you like martial arts films I suggest you see this one, I am pretty sure that you will have a good time.
I am a big fan of martial arts films and I have not seen a good one on the big screen in a very long time. I had high hopes for this film and I was sad when it did not meet them. The story should be the most important thing in any movie, especially martial arts films, so I was disappointed and annoyed to see the filmmakers ignore that and focus their attention on the special effects. Keanu Reeves looks good and that’s about it, I could not focus on him because I was too distracted by all of the CGI. The only thing, well, not a thing but a person I liked in this film, was Rinko Kikuchi, she was great. Overall, if you are a true fan of martial arts films, you will not like this one.
