A multinational spin of the Samurai legend "47 rōnin" (or "13 Assassins") with a pretty good deceptive waiting and planning game played out before the climatic assault of the palace. No jostling action as expected for a "Knighty" movie but more than compensated by lots of katana kills that befit a samurai epic.

LOTS OF ACTION

Not bad, some good entertainment is included. The story seems to have elements of other movies, so it does not feel that original. However, there are some decent action scenes and Morgan Freeman is always a pleasure to watch. Clive Owen was effective as a basically, a one dimensional character.

A pseudo-medieval and occasionally ponderous retelling of the classic Eastern tale of "The 47 Ronin".

It is burdened with operatic seriousness and sometimes unrealistic swordplay,.. but has some intensely realized conflict, and many beautiful epic (CGI generated) settings .

I found it only mildly entertaining,
...and I usually like this type of film .

the worst movie of all

I really like the film with protect "Honor". The Americans not see the different "Honor" and "Dignity". What a shame.....

Story line was imitative, characters were derivative, "baddie" character was bland, and otherwise boring really.

I really enjoyed this movie. I don't know why the critics were so harsh. Confused by the ending though, but overall good film.

There are a few "pros" but the "cons" out-weigh them. The biggest negative is this plot has been done thousands of times.

Well, if it's truly the injustice of corruption which upsets you, then perhaps you might have been so passionately moved to act before you arrived in your own court.
-What exactly do you mean by that?
I mean that it would be prudent to examine if this is simply a matter of pride.
-It's not a matter of pride, it's a question of dignity.
So you will refuse the duty.
- I refuse the extortion!.
My Lord, corruption within the capital is nothing new. How is this different from any other absurd new tax?
-When a man like that can demand a bribe out in the open, with no fear of recourse, we're headed for a dangerous time.
What?
-You think I hold on to an idealism that no longer exists?
===
Honor is something that all men are born with. It cannot be taken from you, nor can it be granted. It must only not be lost.
===
His master's daughter was presented to him as a whore, and he did nothing. He cares for nothing. Not honor, not his family, not himself, and certainly not you.

During the long, dark period of the Great Wars, an elite class of soldier rose from battle. Their unbreakable code was simple... possess a noble heart of courage,
right conduct, and absolute devotion to one's master. From out of those years of bloodshed, an empire would emerge. Its power would assimilate persons of every color, creed, and faith. This uncontested rule eroded the traditions of the great knights, but not for all.
===
A warrior disposing of his sword can only be interpreted in one way. He has abandoned all attachment to his former self.
===
There's no shame in feeling grief, but destroying yourself will not bring Lord Bartok back.
-Spare me your insight.
That is all we have left.

30 years ago this month, and against all counsel, it was idealism that led me to invite you into my home. A young man with an empty soul, muddied by drink,
and as dark as the graves of those who crossed his path. But it was idealism
that saw through all of that to the man I see before me.
