Keanu Reeves stars in an epic fantasy reworking of the incredible true story of 47 brave samurai who face impossible odds.
When evil Lord Kira (Tadanobu Asano) slaughters their master and banishes them, 47 samurai warriors are dispersed across the land. In order to exact revenge and restore honour, their leader Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada) recognises that they will need the help of exiled and enslaved outcast half-breed Kai (Keanu Reeves). But even with Kai's inspirational heroics, this determined band of rebels are massively outnumbered. As they battle their way across a hostile world, they also face many supernatural foes. These range from terrifying mythical beasts to sinister shape-shifters. Dating from the 18th century, the true tale of the 47 ronin is one of the greatest samurai legends. Keanu Reeves' eagerly anticipated return to the action-adventure genre is a visually stunning spectacle that features breathtaking battles and extraordinary effects.
