If you like to watch free movies online, the action adventure epic Ronin 47 should be on your watch list. The movie stars Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada and Ko Shibasaki. The film is directed by Carl Rinsch and based on a screenplay by Chris Morgan and Hossein Amini. The movie focuses on a band of Ronin (samurais) who go on a quest to avenge their master Lord Asano of Ako who was forced to his death by a powerful shogun.
The band of samurais is joined by Kai (Reeves) who lead them as they encounter powerful forces and enemies during their quest. Along the way the Ronin also learn that Lord Kira was behind their master’s death, which leads to greater dangers. In spite of the odds, Kai and the Ronin proceed, and the mission is particularly important for Kai as it was the Lord Asano who took him in spite of the fact that he is not pure Japanese. Since the film is fantasy, certain liberties have been taken with the setting and costumes, but there is still a distinctly Japanese feel and look to them.
Ronin 47 is based on an old Japanese legend, but new elements have been added that make it an enjoyable watch. It has plenty of action, the visual effects are very good and it doesn’t lose track of its Japanese foundation, making this a good watch. Reeves also does justice to his role as a samurai, and while the pace slows down every now and then, there’s always something to keep you hooked. Ronin 47 may not be on the same level as the other epic adventure films that have come out, but it is a well crafted historical fantasy that offers a mesmerizing blend of action, fantasy and Japanese mythology weaved together for a modern audience.
