Ronin Reeves in 47 Ronin trailer
There are some great effects in the trailer for 47 Ronin as well as some stunning visuals. I am surprised by the trailer as it is more CG laden and mystical than I thought it was going to be, sort of a cross between an old Sinbad film and an Eastern Samurai film. Don't take that as a negative though for it looks like action and adventure merged from two sides of the world which could turn out to be a good film.
First time feature director Carl Rinsch takes the helm of the film with Chris Morgan and Hossein Amini delivering the script, and hard as Keanu Reeves might try, he's still channelling old Neo.
There's a good cast behind Keanu Reeves as well, as can be seen from the trailer, and everything in the film adds up to suggest this is going to be something different from what we've seen before. I do wonder though if there are just a little too many effects.
