Review: ’47 Ronin’ -
"...the national flavor at the heart of this story has been completely suffocated under an incoherent wail of florid bullshit."

"An Insufferably boring, culturally hegemonic, and profoundly ugly pastiche of action adventure, the only conceivable value of this film is in how it exposes the cynicism and backwards thinking that has made Hollywood vulnerable to failures of this magnitude. It’s not just that “47 Ronin” is very bad, but that it’s hard to imagine how it possibly could have been any good."
