||An original screenplay, based on the Japanese legend of the 47 ronin
||Michael Konyves, Dave Sussman
||Clive Owen, Morgan Freeman, Cliff Curtis, Dave Legeno, Michael Lombardi and an international cast.
||When the leader of a warrior clan crosses the emperor’s advisor he is executed and the clan disbanded. But in the shadows while the warrior’s commander appears to descend into debauchery the rest are preparing for vengance, intending to attack an impregnable fortress. Can they succeed?
||People trek across a snowy and forested landscape and ride horses across the horizon. Ministers, warriors and others intone sonerously in formal gatherings. Black clad men battle, mostly with swords. Many die.
||This film must be up for the award for the highest body count in 2015, but despite this it was not exciting. One of the critics described it as “Game of Thrones” without the fun., and it is in the frame for the lowest critic’s score on Rotten Tomatoes. So enough said, if you decide to view it don’t expect to enjoy it.
