This movie was panned by the critics, and when I looked at the rotten tomato rating I didn't expect much going into this movie. Maybe that it is why I liked it more than other people, because I expected the worst and it was better than my expectations.

To start off with, let's talk about the good stuff: visually this movie is amazing, in fact, it is absolutely beautiful. I think the most unfortunate thing about this movie will be that because it is thought of as bad, that the people who did such amazing jobs for the graphics, set design and costume design may not be recognized for their absolute masterpiece, because that is what it is. This is a visually beautiful movie, and because of this it makes it worth seeing in the more expensive theatres with better graphics (ie: Imax).

For the so-so stuff: a lot of people didn't like Keanu Reeves character, found that the executives threw in a "white guy" to make the movie successful... and they are right, they did... however, I do believe that without it many people wouldn't have liked the movie as much. In fact, except for foreign movies that have got enough hype because they are the end-all-be-all, North American audiences truly will not go to movies that seem to be completely oriental (I could be completely wrong on this, but that is just my observation). So, the addition of Keanu Reeves character bridges this, and allows for the North American audience to slowly be immersed into the Japanese culture and story of this movie. (This is just like Tom Cruise in the Last Samurai).

For the bad: yes, this movie is soooo far off the original story it isn't even funny, so if you are going to this movie to see the original story, you are in for a very bad time.

VIDEO (3D):

47 Ronin 3D arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 MVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. The picture was filmed in native 3D. The stereo digital intermediate was produced by Cameron/Place Group and Stereographer John Harper. The spectacular imagery perfectly presents Director Carl Rinsch’s and Cinematographer John Mathieson’s natural, though dusty earthy palette of a time long ago in Japan. The colour palette is warm and richly hued, with strong primaries that boldly accent the picture. Contrast is well balanced with deep blacks. Resolution is effectively detailed, with finely resolved textures, exhibited in structures, weapons, clothing, and human features. This 3D native capture provides a naturally, non-exaggerated sense of spatial dimensionality and depth that enhances the realism. (4.5/5)

VIDEO (2D):

47 Ronin 2D arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. The good qualities described above are present, except the presentation is flat when compared to the 3D version. (4/5)

AUDIO:

The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio track is dynamic with bold, deep bass. The soundfield is actively engaged throughout, with an aggressive surround presence that defines epic soundscapes. The orchestral music score, punctuated by Japanese Taiko percussion instruments, is expansive and enveloping. Dialogue remains clear. This is an exciting and sensitive sonic experience that perfectly supports both nuanced quiet moments and the gripping action scenes. (5/5)

MOVIE:

47 Ronin is based on an epic story of inspiring courage in the early 18th century. After a treacherous warlord kills their master, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and reclaim their honour.

47 Ronin stars Keanu Reeves as Kai. Kai is found abandoned and taken in by a man from one of the prominent families of a nearby village. Trying to get accepted by the other locals proves to be a challenge for Kai because of his outsider status. However, he is eventually unintentionally thrust into a role requiring his fighting abilities after his adopted father dies. There is much more to this movie than what I wrote. It is listed that the character of Kai was written into 47 Ronin. However, the end of the movie implies that 47 Ronin is partly inspired by real life events that took place. I say partly because obviously many of the events portrayed in the film such as: supernatural/fantasy elements centered around a magical shape shifting witch(played by Rinko KiKuchi) (contained in the film) obviously did not take place.

Wow! How could someone from Universal make such a moronic decision to edit a movie for home use and screw it up soooo bad? I understand shortening the movie for theatre viewing, but the 3 or 4 deleted scenes in the "bonus features" would have only added 5 mins to the movie and would have improved it so much.....bad call Universal.
