    Universal City, California, February 4, 2014— Keanu Reeves (The Matrix trilogy, The Day The Earth Stood Still) stars in a reimagining of one of Japan’s timeless tales, 47 Ronin, available on Blu-ray™ 3D and Blu-ray™ Combo Packs, DVD, DIGITAL HD including UltraViolet™ and On Demand on April 1, 2014, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.­­­
     

    Based on an epic story, this extraordinary tale of inspiring courage has its origins in the early 18th century. After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and reclaim their honor. Transformed into a thrilling, visually stunning 3D film by director Carl Rinsch, 47 Ronin tells the story of a small group of warriors, or ronin, on a quest to avenge the death of their master. Battling across a savage world of mythical beasts, shape-shifting witches and wondrous terrors, the ronin must seek help from kai (Reeves), an enslaved half-breed they once rejected – in their ultimate fight for redemption.
     

    Keanu Reeves leads an international cast that includes Hiroyuki Sanada (SunshineThe Last Samurai) as Oishi, the leader of the ronin; Tadanobu Asano (The Wolverine, Thor: The Dark World) as Lord Kira, the treacherous villain who will stop at nothing to destroy his enemies; Academy Award®-nominated actress Rinko Kikuchi (BabelPacific Rim) as the Witch, a siren who executes Kira’s deadly plans; and Ko Shibasaki (The Lady Shogun and Her MenOne Missed Call) as Mika, the forbidden love of Kai’s life.

    Is this movie anything?I mean, Keanu Reeves is one of the worst actors around, but I can
    tolerate him if the story is good and the 3D is promising.

    It wasn't as terrible as all the reviews had it - I'd put it more in the "stunningly mediocre" category of films. It's what happens when a studio is like "we want a giant 3D spectacle like all the kids like these days" and then starts spending money left and right, hiring a first-time director to shoot an unfinished script. How they thought it could have turned out any better was beyond me, but not the worst two hours I've ever seen. That said, once was enough for me.
