This Christmas, you are going to be getting a stocking full of Keanu Reeves. His samurai, sci-fi, action flick is finally getting released. 47 Ronin has not been without it's production struggles (some estimates have the films cost of production in the $200 million range) and I continue to ask the simple question, why do we insist on having white dudes play the lead roles in samurai themed flicks? Perhaps a better question, why Reeves? The dude can't act and is not a box office draw. Was Tom Cruise busy?!
I say skip it and watch these films instead:
