47 Ronin is a Hollywood adaptation of a true story from Japan. It is helmed by a first time director, has faced much studio interference, and has its theatrical release delayed for over a year. The film should be a write-off. Yet, it is far from such. 47 Ronin is at times a magnificent big scale adventure film that is a lot more serious and thoughtful than many of its multiplex counterparts. It’s still very messy, mostly in terms of pacing and the cohesion between scenes, but it is very easy to see some specks of greatness as well. Even in its chopped form, it is still highly enjoyable, especially when it comes alive in its action sequences.

The film follows the true story of a group »
