Thank you, I like the scene "Mika Attemps To Poison Lord Kira"


I do not know if you've seen this interview, he is questioned about a fight, an enemy, a weapon, a ritual and a limit.

He reminds me of this great champion Rafael Nadal who has tics before each point.

Karamelle, I have been watching Rafa for years. I think that Nadal vs Federer has been one of the great rivalries in sport.

Cool interview, thanks for the links!

FINALLY got to see the movie this weekend...what a long wait. But it was totally worth it. Beautiful filming, locations were stunning, costumes amazing and KR was sublime! So glad I pre-ordered the blue ray now. Still waiting for that one too. Ah the anticipation ;-)

Yes. To all the haters out there: "The year 2013 saw far less-gripping adventures raking in more money and garnering better critical notice (Pacific Rim comes to mind, especially since Rinko Kikuchi is in both). Clear your mind of the negative buzz and enjoy this underrated epic."

Translation:

Our verdict : Even during the production full of problems bad signs were forming above these 47 Ronin, that mercilessly flopped in the U.S. (a box office of just $ 40 million on a budget that flirts with the $ 200 million, ed.) But is it a legitimate flop or rather an interesting failure? Frankly, a little of both. Somewhere, hidden in this uneven fantasy epic is an excellent film, say the mainstream version of Takashi Miike's cult classic 13 Assassins. Unfortunately, the studio could not resist interfering with 47 Ronin, with above all an enforced PG -13 rating that largely trimmed the in itself clever action scenes. The 'bloody' climax the movie works towards in an hour and a half hour, becomes an expensive missed opportunity which largely takes place in the twilight. Moreover, the fantasy elements are nowhere convincing because of weak CGI , and Reeves, as often, is acting as if he has just ingested a box of valium. Fortunately, 47 Ronin has also some outstanding Japanese actors on board with Hiroyuki Sanada (see also The Wolverine , ed ) that -barely- save the flic from total destruction. It is possible that 47 Ronin will get a 'better' unrated version on disc in the future, but until then I advise everyone to avoid this. These days with '300 Rise of An Empire' there is a epic wíth balls in the halls !

"On valium"? Please. Come on! KC would have had his head shopped off, for real, if that was the case. (anyone who had seen the links Arya posted would agree!) Would like to see the guy who gave the comments do a fight like that himself. He clearly doesn't get it.
As for the story line, there is some truth to it, I suppose.
In one scene, for instance, Mika gets a bottle of poison. It doesn't get mentioned again, which is quite odd.
But when you look at the deleted scenes, then suddenly there is this scene in which Mika tries to poison Kira and it becomes crystal clear. So there people have a point. There are some holes in the story.

There are probably more things like that, that I missed because I was so excited to finally see the darn thing! ;-)

Honestly, I too missed the "blood" in the last scene. From a pure esthetic point of view it would have been marvelous to see the clean and pure white kimono's turn a beautiful dark red, more poetic. It didn't have to turn into a "Kill Bill"-scene ;-) But you know, it was kind of the point when wearing white clothing, no? It was the thing that you were waiting for. (Not that it is ever nice to see KC die in a movie, but if he must then it better be spectacular: better to go out with a bang then with a little "poof", no?)

But I still think it was a beautiful movie. I quite liked the whole Japanese vibe. KC fitted right in!
All just my opinion of course.

That's a terrible, idiotic review.

I was glad there wasn't blood. I don't think it was needed for impact. Just my opinion. A beautiful and profound film. I love it.

Sad thing indeed, that a fellow countryman of mine said that! *blush*
But it was to be expected, not everyone gets the kind of actor KC is. Nor the script choices that he makes.
And Japanese-like films are not for everyone, one has to look beyond the end of one's nose! The review is just so superficial.

I remember there was a tv show on Belgian television when I was just a little girl and it was about a Japanese (I think?) woman, just a soap about everyday life. I was so fascinated by that. My grandmother used to watch it every day.
Brings back memories ;-)
It had the same "atmosphere" as 47 Ronin (but less beautiful), you know the restrained passion that is not allowed to come out except in an honorable fight or act? You feel the same thing when watching 47 Ronin. If you let yourself get carried away by the story you can almost "taste" it! I think that is why I like it so much.

I admit it's an acquired taste. But I just think a review like that is disrespectful to all parties involved. (yes: it means that I got upset about it!)

Ok, I am getting real familiar with the extras on the disk. There is one part where Reeves' got a sword/katana and he flings it across the room, and then raises his arms with the most beautific look on his face. This move looked familiar and then I remembered in Tune In Tomorrow he flings that fishing pole when they are surf fishing, anyone remember?
