The story of the Forty-seven Ronin is well known in Japan, and has been since the historical event occurred early in the 18th century. It’s not nearly as common knowledge on these shores, but that’s something that Carl Rinsch’s 47 Ronin adaptation looked to change. Keanu Reeves stars in this tale that reimagines the factual story of revenge, honor, and loyalty as one set within a world rich with the fantastical elements of Japanese folklore. In its theatrical release, 47 Ronin was a box office dud, never coming close to making its reported $175 million budget back. Perhaps it was simply a case of the wrong movie at the wrong time. Since the quality of the production is surprisingly high, 47 Ronin might find new life on home video. Hit the jump for my 47 Ronin Blu-ray review.
