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.

Well-told story, although the magic/fantasy elements seem superfluous - the story would have stood up well enough without it. Good acting, and great costumes and photography.

Based on the 1700's true story of 47 Ronin (masterless Samurai) who avenged their master after waiting 1 year. The story is not historically accurate and also takes a lot of artistic license in this retelling. What was good: The settings were accurate, costumes excellent, use of Japanese mythology, mannerisms and use of japanese actors. What was bad: the story was not overly complex and could have been paced better, special effects were OK and Keanu Reeves (being his wooden self as usual). I thoroughly enjoyed it as I am a huge Japanese fan, not the best, but at this price - buy it.
