This movie is a bit of a weird one though. On the one hand, it is in fact a pretty bad one, but at the same time it definitely does not remain without its qualities.Let me start by saying that if you like Japanese sword fighting movies, this movie is really not a bore to watch. The action is clearly the best this movie has to offer too, which makes it all the more a shame that everything else falls so far behind in this movie.

The visual style and martial arts in the film really can’t hide the fact that the story is very poor. It’s not even that messy, but very simplistic and really far from believable or surprising at all. Because of the writing, little else manages to work in the film. It takes away a lot of the fun and makes it really hard to feel connected to anything or anyone in this movie. The characters are unique enough, but at the same time have very little personality, while the story also fails to make things even interesting or exciting.

And yes, the film still retains its quality. Although it was clearly made with a very low budget, it is otherwise admirably well put together. It looks genuinely good, with a pleasant visual style and very well shot fight scenes. Fortunately, because the story has little to say, the film also offers more than enough space for its action. It also keeps the pace nice in the movie, so it’s often not that bad or annoying to watch, while you really keep in mind that what you’re watching is far from great.

It’s a film that also focuses heavily on mythologies and magic, which certainly comes at the expense of credibility and makes the film a bit ridiculous to watch at times. As the title suggests, it is heavily inspired by the 2013 movie “47 Ronin”, which in itself was far from a great movie. Fortunately, the film also remains idiosyncratic enough on its own. The style may never be very convincing in terms of credibility, but in terms of entertainment there is not much to complain about.

Despite the fact that the film is really not a good one, it fortunately still manages to offer great entertainment, so that it continues to keep its value. Still, there are clearly better (genre) movies that you could watch instead of this one.
