Universal has released a new clip from the action film 47 Ronin.  The story stars Keanu Reeves and centers on a troupe of banished samurai who long to restore their honor and find vengeance against the treacherous Lord Kira (played by Tadanobu Asano) who was responsible for the death of their master.  The clip illustrates that the heroes will be fighting beasts rather than men, but the beasts are so hard to buy because the CGI looks so crummy.  I can understand needing CGI for big set pieces, but this is a mano-a-mano fight, and it looks like Reeves is fighting a cartoon character rather than a flesh-and-blood creature.

Hit the jump to watch the clip.  Click on the respective links for Steve’s set visit and interviews with Reeves, co-star Hiroyuki Sanada, costume designer Penny Rose, and director Carl Rinsch.  The film also stars Rinko Kikuchi, Kou Shibasaki, and Jin Akanishi47 Ronin opens in 3D on December 25th.

Here’s the official synopsis for 47 Ronin:

Keanu Reeves makes an explosive return to action-adventure in 47 Ronin. After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and restore honor to their people. Driven from their homes and dispersed across the land, this band of Ronin must seek the help of Kai (Reeves)—a half-breed they once rejected—as they fight their way across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft and wondrous terrors.

As this exiled, enslaved outcast becomes their most deadly weapon, he will transform into the hero who inspires this band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity.

  • Yup

    “fighting beasts rather than men”
    Yes. Which is why the synopsis reads: fight their way across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft and wondrous terrors.

    As for the CGI, I think my mind is strong enough to suspend disbelief for the 4 minutes this scene requires.

    Not that it is all that bad anyway.

    Why will I see this movie? The excellent Rinko Kikuchi and Hiroyuki Sanada, not to mention the costumes and cinematography. Keanu is there too, and I will see this movie because Reeves has had a terribly hard life, and he deserves it.

    I hope you see this movie in theatres too. Heck, it doesn’t look too bad!
