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 -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.

- Quick review:
- Keanu Reeves stars in this affectless samurai epic set in 18th century Japan. Lots of visual glitter, little heart. With Ko Shibasaki, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Tadanobu Asano.
