A great movie with all imaginable letters. A reference and a great tribute to the 47 Ronin, not that of Keanu Reeves thing, but the true 47 Ronin of Mizoguchi and Kunio Watanabe. Thanks to producers by these 2h unforgettable.What movie show, incredibly moving and full of tension. An excellent script, flawless performances where Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman join a sensational group, putting on a show. A costume height, splendid photography and history too touching. I loved it. sure twisted by another end, picked me up by surprise, leaving me half perplexed, but what a wonderful film. Of <more>
When the first time i saw the trailer i thought this would be just another low budget Hollywood flick,but then i watched the movie and i have to say it surprised me,as a history geek,i am interested in knights and all kinds of warriors and their codes and philosophies. This movies has it all. If you want to see gore and dragons,this isn't for you It is a fictional work,in a fictional world. I gave the movies a 10,some would say i over rated it,but i liked the movie and i thing it deserves the rating. I especially like the fact that the film takes place in a world where racial differences <more>
are non existent,religion is hardly mentioned,it is all about Honor,Morality,and accepting responsibility for our own acts.
A 20 year old young man who was compelled to write his first review! (by manusseanpat)
I have never been compelled to rate or write a review for anything in my life be I IMDb Amazon or likewise. However after watching this movie and see a mere 6.3 out of 10 review for it I am disgusted. I am a big movie watcher and I recently watched Guardians of the Galaxy which received over 8/10. So of course as a rating like this is so rare I expected a lot. However although I did enjoy the movie I felt 8 may have been a little to high. So What's my point? Although this is my opinion, I do believe I speak for more than just myself when i say this movie deserves at least an 8/10. I am so <more>
disappointed in the community on IMDb for only rating it a 6.3 average. I feel people did not judge this movie fairly and like the injustice portrayed in the movie it seems almost fitting that it received injustice on IMDb. I will not try to argue or convince of why I thought this movie deserved a better review, but I will say this for me this movie is getting a 9/10. The feeling of "WOW" and emotion I felt when this movie came to a close rarely happens. I am not one to be WOWED easily and I must say for anyone out there who voted for it below five rethink what defines a good movie. Its not the genre that you like its not your favourite actors its much much more. Thank You for reading my post. I can honestly say as a 20 year old now writing my first review, It will be another 20 years before I feel compelled to write another. "Last Knights" you are forever in my heart! PS: I sincerely hope by the time you read this the rating will not be as low as it was when I posted this.
Really good, and enjoyable, highly recommend it (by zidangus)
After reading the initial reviews of this movie I thought it might be a bit of a turkey. However, I like these type of movies so I thought I would give it 15-20 minutes and see how it goes. Happily, it went well, I was hooked on the storyline and the acting. Clive Owen was fantastic as he usually is in these type of roles, Morgan Freeman, again one of his better movies, and the supporting cast all very well acted. The CGI was good but plot and acting outshone it, which is a really good thing in my opinion. Anyway, I really do recommend this film to those people who like this genre. So please <more>
do not listen to the negative reviews to much, watch it for 15 minutes and then decide for yourself if it's for you.
I watched this movie and it was very good movie.It was well acted and scripted. I am entirely confused why this has a 6 star rating. The story line does not get so boring that i start looking at memes on my phone during the movie. This was a great movie i would recommend to friends. if i had any Plus it has Morgan Freeman.
Last Knights: a must see. (by niutta-enrico)
From the catching beginning, through the snowy towns and towers, until the very last frame this film is an absolute must see. The plot reminds of a very well written Fantasy Novel, the dialogue is terrific, the rhythm is penetrating. Morgan Freeman seems utterly convinced and convincing in his role. Clive Owen plays one of the best Cinematographic knights ever. He really is the center of gravity of the entire film and holds his place like he was born to do that. Great.If you love adventure movies, if you are young at least inside or male same as before , you'll like it.
Pretty good medieval action drama flick (by root99)
I am compelled to write my first review after 4 years on IMDb due to the bad reviews by critics. First off, I completely enjoyed this movie. I loved the initial setting which took about an hour which others complained to be too long but I felt that laid a good foundation for the plot to continue. The second half could've been better but I'm not complaining. This was much better than Ridley Scott's Robin Hood when compared to a medieval story. What lacked in this movie was more character development and overall depth to both the story and characters. The details of storming the <more>
castle are also just gone through quickly without any importance. I feel like this could've been a 3 hour saga of excellent medieval story had the director gone with it. A fully developed story with multidimensional characters would've been perfect. Both Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman gave wonderful performances and as someone who loves their movies I felt satisfied just to see them in these particular roles.Overall, don't miss this one just because of some harsh critic ratings. I felt entertained and this is one movie which did not let me down at all when compared with other medieval stories of the past few years.
If u expect tons of flashy scenes shooting twerking omg omg scenes.. u will not find it here. But u will find an epic story of honour that is as strong as a steel.This movie bring me back to days when i was an young boy full of passion full of joy clinching my sword with my lethal enemy but this was just a sticks, not an real swords.In this movie Morgan Freeman taking us to the world we always want to and don't want to live in :P A fresh look on classic 7 samurai movie. This movie will be a bit to complicated for normal USA citizen, but don't worry u always got your stars to show you <more>
the honorable way to the true America glory. peace
Successful At Creating An Unique Universe (by cihatdamar)
Although setting reminds us middle-age Europe, film created a fantasied world in which there is a nation consisted of different races such as blacks,Asian,middle-easterners and westerners. In this way it reminds me Game of Thrones. There are multi cultural aspects from far east to the Europe in a variety of ways such as architecture, language and clothing. First scenes are pretty exciting and plot gets you but after a while it becomes boring as there is not action. But then you get into action again and until the last minute you feel the head indeed. Its a worthwhile to watch for the people <more>
who are addicted to such series as game of thrones and vikings.
