Blu-ray Review: 47 Ronin | The Man Cave Cinema

The legend of the forty-seven ronin tells the tale of a group of 18th century samurai — left masterless after the death of their daimyo — who sought to restore honor to their house by avenging their master. It was an act that ultimately cost them their lives; and over the centuries, their story has transcended the pages of history and entered the realm of myth. Director Carl Rinsch's 47 Ronin is by no means the first film to revisit the legend; but it does so in a unique way, interweaving it with aspects from classic Japanese mythology. The end result may bear only a passing resemblance to historical accounts, but it's still a spectacle of sword and sorcery that has to be seen to be believed.
