47 Ronin

47 Ronin47 Ronin featuring Keanu Reeves must be one of the best films I have seen in a long time.

The story of a young boy who grows up within a Samurai environment as an outcast, always shunned and bullied and how he is welcomed in to the Samurai group after their Lord has been unjustly killed to revenge their Lord and rescue his daughter.  Based in Japan and on Japanese lore this is a fascinating story, well written and well acted upon. Every part could have been made especially for each and every actor; they seemed to fit so easily together.  There seemed to be no forced emotion, all natural, which carries you along with the story.  Excellent directing and work all around.

There is something for everyone in this film, with lots of action, the love story, good versus evil, and witches and demons.  I would most definitely recommend this film.
