’47 Ronin’

by Kaori Shoji

Director: Carl Rinsch

Language: English

You’ll enjoy this as soon as you stop thinking it has anything to do with the Chushingura episode in Japanese history. This is a visually stunning superhero movie with “oriental” costumes and A-list J-movie stars such as Ko Shibasaki and Tadanobu Asano. Keanu Reeves as alpha samurai Kai and Hiroyuki Sanada as the silent, avenging Oishi steal the show. Historical fact? Pffft. Forget it.
