Empire - Kim Newman
Perhaps a folly and - Kikuchi aside - too deadpan to be a romp, this is still a decent, colourful samurai spectacle with a classical look (lots of symmetrical compositions) and a story which stands up under multiple retellings.

USA Today - Claudia Puig
While the visuals are lovely to behold, this unremarkable version of the classic 18th century Japanese legend is stiff and uninvolving.
50
New York Post - Sara Stewart
There's little sense of urgency, or - oddly, given the film's title - of scale. You never really think that the 47 are truly outnumbered, and the large action scenes are often just incomprehensible.

Philadelphia Inquirer - David Hiltbrand
An odd mix of stiff and sumptuous.

47 Ronin (2013)


While hunting in the forest, Lord Asano of Ako and his samurai find a young half-breed and take him with them to live in the castle. Several years later, Lord Asano holds a tournament to welcome the Shogun to Ako. The night after the tournament, Lord Asano is bewitched into hurting Lord Kira of Nagato, and is punished into committing seppuku by the Shogun. Realizing that it was a Lord Kira's evil plot, the samurais and the half-breed sets out for revenge against the Shogun's order.
