47 samurai are exiled when their master is framed, and vow revenge against those responsible.
A decent enough movie; watchable and forgettable.
Based on the story of the forty-seven rōnin. Kinda.
I've seen this before and recall liking it well enough, but apparently I didn't take notes for it.
- 1:45 -- Narration.
- 31:30 -- Seppuku
- 47:15 -- They ditched their swords? I would have had them keep fighting outside the arena and off and away before making an escape.
- 1:23:30 -- Uses the wrong sword to cut his thumb, cuts it right off..
- 1:42:15 -- Bushido
1:43:15 -- Great Again.
This was engaging/whatever enough that I really never felt the need to take any notes..
