Okay…many can say what they want about Keanu Reeves, but he chooses films that always work well with his acting. The lone quiet hero with a spritz of Tao, has been this guys mantra for some time. It continues to work, as the first of what will be several trailers, for his new film 47 Ronin blast the web.
Based on the semi-true story of 47 Samurai who rose up against the Japan’s biggest army during the 18th century, 47 Ronin directed by Carl Erik Rinsch creator of that wonderful short The Gift has gathered a stellar team of actors and VFX artist to bring this story of honor,love and revenge to life. I can’t wait to see this.
Keanu Reeves makes an explosive return to action-adventure in 47 Ronin. After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and restore honor to their people. Driven from their homes and dispersed across the land, this band of Ronin must seek the help of Kai (Reeves)—a half-breed they once rejected—as they fight their way across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft and wondrous terrors. As this exiled, enslaved outcast becomes their most deadly weapon, he will transform into the hero who inspires this band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity.
