Movies: 47 Ronin (12A) & The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (PG)

47 Ronin – what’s it about? The Japanese legend of 47 Samurai who were banished and become Ronin, their battle to get revenge for the murder of their master – and their journey to get there… upon the way they meet numerous mystical creatures.

I thought this was really fab – definitely see if you like Japanese myths/legends and if you liked such films as The Last Samurai. It had a good balance of story, fighting and character driven plot…it wasn’t over the top in wire work which can be over used in this type of genre…they have awesome bows too - yeah - see it :)

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty – what’s it about? Poor Walter doesn’t have much of a life apart from his work and his sister and mum…with the company he works for closing and him loosing the last negative for their final front cover all seems lost- until Walter sets out on an epic journey.

I really really really thought this film was going to blow but I was actually pleasantly surprised – it was a nice film – kind of one you would watch with your parents…or that you can just sit and watch – it wasn’t dull or boring…check it if you want an easy watching pleasant movie...
