From the initial trailer I wasn't expecting much of this movie, I was just excited to see a movie about Japanese history while Im living in Chiba, Japan. I saw the movie today (it was released on December 6th, in Japan) and it exceeded my expectations. My wife also liked it a lot, and she's Japanese. Of course it was somewhat "whitewashed," but actually I felt like Keaneau Reeves played more of a support role. The Japanese hero, Oishi, played the lead role. The effects looked a little suspect in the trailer, but they turned out great, and there was no "Avatar" effect as others have suggested. Overall, loved it. Give it a chance, enjoy it for what it is... a fantasy re-creation of a popular Japanese historical event.
