Under-rated for a reason!
Verified purchase
This is a 2015 film and not a 2020 film, you know you would think an internet company like Amazon could use the internet, to find out the date of films they are placing on their own site came out!

Anyway, the review! A boring script, read by actors collecting a paycheck. Not a single actor in this seems to care how they delivered their lines and at times, seemed to mumble their way through it with no real depth or feeling.

Watch it if you have nothing else to watch or are stoned or both!

Mixed feelings. Worth watching, but do not expect a masterpiece.
Verified purchase
Unspecified vassal kingdom, part of the unspecified vast empire. Monarch, oblivious to the nepotism of his one and only minister - allows him to kill a true nobleman. Deceased's soldiers are planning and executing the revenge.
The storyline is quite coherent (who in the right mind would burn a perfectly nice, freshly "inherited" castle??), acting very decent, no nudity, fight scenes unrealistic (medieval European knights with Japanese katana swords).
Interesting costumes, pleasant locations and the CGI is spotless.
The completely unnecessary cliffhanger in the last 2 seconds of the movie has annoyed me.

Despite millions spent on production, there is a profoundly small 'wow' factor.

Rightly deserved cinematic flop - but feel free to watch, you will not regret your time.

Brilliant and bold

It’s not boring at all, it had a story that had to build up before being executed...literally. This is not just mindless violence, with swords clashing and sparking against each other for nothing. I agree, it could have been better, it isn’t on the epic scale of Troy, kingdom of Heaven, those were films on a massive scale that are hard to match. This is still a good film with some very good fight scenes and the actors did not appear to me to be just collecting a pay cheque. Come on...we are talking about seasoned actors like Morgan Freeman, whom I wished was in it longer...Clive Owen, an actor that gives his best in his films as he is a total professional. I can’t complain about any of the acting at all. Not every film in this genre can have a cast of thousands of extras. This film was clever and entertaining. There are too many sword and sandal films that are so mediocre that they are not worthy for viewing. Last Knights has put some long overdue respect and much needed entertainment back into the game.

Possibly Clive Own's best film
Verified purchase
Set in a fictional multi-culti empire, fusing together medieval European architecture with a Japanese feudal system and the warrior way of bushido. Last Knights is inspired by the true story of the renowned 47 Ronin of 1701, who having failed to fulfil their duty to protect their master, become ronin (masterless Samurai) as all lands and titles of their once respected house are stripped by the Shogun and given to the rival house responsible for their demise. In defiance of the Shogun, and therefore facing certain death, they secretly conspire to sacrifice themselves in order to avenge their fallen master, and restore the name and honour of their house, by carrying out an audacious attack against their rival's fortress against all odds.
It's an enjoyable film, the costumes are well made (again a Japanese/western fusion), the medieval scenery, a mixture of real cathedrals and CGI settings, is realistic and sets the mood as the story unfolds.

Arrived in swift prime delivery. Bit skeptical at first after reading mixed reviews,but didnt deter me from viewing myself.medieval action. Skilled warrior raiden,owen is driven to seek justice for his upstanding master bartok who refuses in bowing to pressure from corrupt lords in realm, not dull by all means,on the whole just not mindless voilence with swords duelling fights and battles, like troy,but doesnt set world alight,comes about honour and everything,great locations,twists much action,clive owen shows tenacity,the will and resillienc cast get on well in roles.

Good, but could have been better - worth watching, though
Verified purchase
Quite good fun, but not one of my favourite films of this type. I liked the overall concept of bringing together people from all races and creeds (hence the somewhat varied origin of the cast members), but some of the dialogue was a bit stilted and unnatural; this may have been because the director was trying to create a medieval feel, but it just sounded a bit false to me at times. Morgan Freeman was as smooth as ever but Clive Owen and Cliff Curtis didn't seem comfortable with some of the lines they were expected to deliver. And some of the actors, who obviously didn't speak fluent English, struggled with some of the lines and were almost incoherent at times. But that didn't actually bother me as it seemed to fit with the all races/all creeds aspect of the story - if this coming together had happened relatively recently then the disparities in language would still be apparent.

But, visually, this film is very enjoyable to watch, with sweeping landscapes and detailed townscapes, and the well choreographed fight sequences were very good too. The storyline was entertaining, if a little predictable, but I would have liked to have seen one or two plot twists to keep us guessing more about the outcome - the villainous Gezza Mott (played by the excellent Aksel Hennie) surely had more evil tricks up his sleeve; he just seemed to give up very easily towards the end, which was something of a let down for me.

It's an entertaining film, and well worth watching, but I think it could have been better.

Honour is everything.
Verified purchase
Set in a Medieval world, the underlying theme is the cost and consequences of honour which are perfectly encapsulated in the final scene. It begins with Raiden's (Clive Owen) master refusing to act dishonourably and traces the consequences of this till the very end of the film. As Ito, the most formidable protagonist, but also a man of honour states to Raiden "I can no more back down than you.".

Limp and Lame

Apparently a remake of 47 Ronin - which was fantastic. I would advise watching that and not wasting your time on this. Slow-moving and turgid, with cliched lines and bored-looking actors. Worst of all is the atmosphere - it has none - it is too squeaky-clean by far. Awful on many levels.
