It would be nice if the movie 47 Ronin had 47 minutes more. If they spent that time to produce some better fighting scenes, some philosophy around samurai (for example, the bushido, which is mentioned once in the movie) or even showing more details around the use of the samurai sword.
Besides these downsteps, I can point some more! Yay! Keanu Reeves, yeah, Neo, was there and they didn’t give him a nice role. No deep lines, no deep action. He is there only to be the “good guy”. Boring. Want more? No fucking blood!!! The samurai drenched in blood at those old eras.
Well, they got a good story, for sure, but they produced it poorly. The trailer has the best of what the movie offers. Better stay with the trailer only! Dammit, I had high hopes for this one.
The FX were pretty nice. The blueish swords were a nice touch, as everything else. No extreme, exaggerated special effects everywhere. Just the essential.
After all, the end is pretty cool, really liked it. I can say now it’s a worth watch.
And I can agree with Kai:
“I’ll search for you in a thousand lives…”
