Competition: Win ’47 Ronin’ *closed*

Japanese legend comes to life when Keanu Reeves makes an explosive return in the epic action adventure 47 Ronin (2013). A visually spectacular story of revenge, love and honour, 47 Ronin is based on the fictional story of the forty-seven ronin, a real-life group of wandering samurai who in 18th-century Japan choose to avenge the murder of their master. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of Carl Rinsch’s samurai slash em up this coming Monday (12 May), we have THREE Blu-ray copies of 47 Ronin to give away to our readership, courtesy of the fabulous folk at Universal Pictures UK.

With the underhand machinations of their rival Lord Kira (Tadanobu Asano) blamed for the death of their master, a group of abandoned ronin recruit British-Japanese outcast Kai (Reeves) to help plan their revenge. Vastly outnumbered, but inspired by the teachings of Kuranosuke Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada), Kai and the other ronin engage in a bloody battle with forces under the command of Kira’s loyal subordinate Mizuki (Rinko Kikuchi).
