A Samurai film brings with it a lot of promises about it being a great film to watch in theatres and on DVD later. Especially, when you have actors like Keanu Reeves and Hiroyuki Sanada sharing screen space. There’s wonder to be expected. Unfortunately, 47 Ronin makes for a supremely tedious film with all the elements of a good action film albeit a Samurai film, but one that falls flat due to an incapability of meeting its expectations. Think Seven Samurai, The Last Samurai, Kill Bill Vol. I (major elements of the Samurai culture), or even the original 47 Ronin that released many years back.
