Movie Review by Shannon
May 21st, 2012

MY GRADE: B to B plus.

The tale of a superlative samurai warrior who goes against the wishes of his clan leader and thus acquires a powerful enemy so he runs away to the American Wild West out to a desert town run by former circus types. The latter have several problems of their own but the samurai warrior has a calming influence on some of them which progresses to him leading the town when it comes under attack by former Union soldier types. There are heroes, fallen heroes and heroes redeemed in this film. Geoffrey Rush is atypical in his usual role playing a drunken clown with some secrets of his own. Kate Bosworth and Danny Huston also star. Tony Cox, the black midget dude, was the funniest supporting character and had some awesome scenes.

The martial arts scenes were a brutal, elegant dance. Impressive music score. Well suited for action types, especially fans of action graphic novels. Some of the deleted scenes on the DVD were interesting enough to check out. The budget for this film was $42M but it only made a bit over $11M at the Box Office which just goes to show that sometimes the movie audiences get it wrong.

ACTION SCENES: B plus to A minus; STORY/PLOTTING: B to B plus; CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: B; FABLE THEMES: B to B plus; OVERALL GRADE: B to B plus; WHEN WATCHED: mid February 2012.
