Seven Reasons Why 47 Ronin is a Must Watch Movie

"I will search for you in ten thousand worlds, in ten thousand lifetimes...until I find you."
                    -Kai to Mika (47 Ronin)

I just arrived home from another movie date with my boys. I personally think that 47 Ronin, distributed by Universal Pictures starring Keanu Reeves is a movie one shouldn't miss watching on the big screen.


1. The plot is superb. Set in Japan depicting the 18th century heroic story of the 47 Ronin (Samurai) who avenged the death of their leader. It shows the world how honour and love of country and fellowmen supercedes everything including one's personal happiness.

2. Acting at its best. Keanu Reeves is Keanu Reeves- not just a gorgeus face but someone who becomes what he portrays, even each strand of his hair seems to follow the character's destiny. And yes the rest of the cast more than gives justice to their portrayed roles. Watch how a teardrop falling across Mika's (played by Japanese actress Kou Shibasaki)  porcelain skin could stir in you a gazillion of deep emotions.

3. Action packed scenes! Be prepared for those gritting fight scenes that makes you grateful not having lived in an era where watching men fight to death defines entertainment. The gory and violent parts of the film and the powerful portrayal of dying could confuse the kid's minds though so parental guidance is warranted.

4. A display of Japan's colorful and magnificent culture in all its glory....Costumes and designs as well as architecture and art at its finest marvelously crafted..  from swords to dances and masks...

5. Visual effects that enhance the imagination of kids and kids at heart....

6. The marvelous example of love of family, country, fellowmen and dignity...and living a meaningful life and not dying in vain...

7. a moving story of TRUE LOVE that defies fate itself and conquers all evil....

I could go on and on but I shall not cut the suspense for you...

Find out for yourself why 47 Ronin is a certified blockbuster....

Have fun!-til our next movie date!
