I regret not watching this soon. It's actually great! =)
The movie was great. enjoyed the story and the action. well done.
I was surprised at how much the beliefs in Japan resembles another religion. Honor killings, arranged marriages, death by cutting off someones head. I found the movie very hard to enjoy.
Avoid this one folks. Very formulaic and very dull. The best characters in this do not fight each other and by the end of the movie you could likely care less what happens to any of the characters good or bad.
One of the worst movies I've ever seen. Has cult classic written all over it since most of you think it's 5 stars. But really is a terrible piece of garbage
Story line, acting and pace all good! Enjoy
This is a great movie! Everything about it is high class! The acting, effects costumes are all first rate.
Was Very good
This is an awesome movie. the critics are hating for what... I don't know. Everything that I have heard from them, are all unfounded, nitpicking, stupid, whining.
Ancient culture is fine but I expected a better ending.
Keanu as a ninja? You've got to be kidding!
the story was amazing done based on true facts of japan and its setting this is a must see if u know the nature of history 5 stars
good movie..if only the dialog is in Japanese would make the movie great
Great movie........really enjoyed it!
This Movie is a Total Snooze Fest zzzzzzz This Movie is So Boring, The Story is Boring, The action is Boring. Save Your Money and See American Hustle...
I have had a very strong interest in Japanese culture for years, and this movie was right up my alley. Not only that, but this role definitely helps me let go of always associating Keanu Reeves with "Neo" and the Matrix triloy. The effort he put into preparing for this role definitely paid off. I am very eager to see what his next project will be.
It was a nice story based on true events. Everything about it was decent, not great but decent.
Exciting and entertaining. Enjoy the traditional Japanese custom, settings and value. Great plot. Excellent casts.
Deep message with spiritual undertones
Largely ruined by the ending
Cool effects, excellent costumes and ambience. Would have been better with a R rating.
Pretty decent. Too short. Not enough character development. Great effects. Keanu Reeves delivers a justifiably stoic performance as Kai. Hiroyuki Sanada delivers a consistently under-appreciated performance as Ôishi. If you loved historical adventure fictions such as 300, Kingdom Of Heaven, The Last Samurai, Pathfinder and Outlander, then this film is worth a look.
This looks awesome
Better than the Last Samurai AND its based on real Japanese History. Must Watch.
