47 Ronin


I’ve got to admit that the first time I heard about Keanu Reeves and director Carl Rinsch‘s 47 Ronin, I was not excited. I imagined a horrific merging of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure with Matrix like slow-mo action scenes all with a wooden Reeves stomping around issuing Samurai platitudes like cheap stale fortune cookies. Then I got a look at the trailer. (more…)


There’s a new trailer out for Carl Rinsch‘s 47 Ronin starring Keanu Reeves and I’ve got to be up front with you, I went into this trailer with every intention of mocking the hell out of this movie, Reeves, and anything else I could find. I was already merrily writing savagely witty banter in my head.

The first issue I was sure I was going to mock, about Keanu not being Asian got blown out of the water with the half-breed status of his character. Slowly, as the trailer progressed, everything I thought was going to be fertile ground for tom-foolery sprouted fantastic special effects and wonderful costuming.

I’m still concerned about Reeves patented stiff manner of delivering lines, but now I am willing to give this movie a chance. Even with all the reported delays and re-shoots. It looks like a lot of fun.

47 Ronin hits theater screens December 25th starring Keanu Reeves, Rinko Kikuchi (Pacific Rim), Hiroyuki Sanada (Lost,The Wolverine), and Rick Genest known as “Zombie Boy.”
