    After reading the initial reviews of this movie I thought it might be a bit of a turkey. However, I like these type of movies so I thought I would give it 15-20 minutes and see how it goes. Happily, it went well, I was hooked on the storyline and the acting. Clive Owen was fantastic as he usually is in these type of roles, Morgan Freeman, again one of his better movies, and the supporting cast all very well acted. The CGI was good but plot and acting outshone it, which is a really good thing in my opinion. I recommend this film to those people who like this genre. So please do not listen to the negative reviews to much, watch it for 15 minutes and then decide for yourself if it's for you.

    Decent, Stylish Action Thriller

    Last Knights is basically a direct-to-DVD riff of the Keanu Reeves blockbuster 47 Ronin, which was inspired by a true story and blended with the heavily fictionalized story-telling Japanese theater performances use. Last Knights, on the other hand, features very little fantastical elements, nor the sweeping scope and scale that made 47 Ronin so huge. The star power in Last Knights is solid, the action is stylish, and the production is impressive, but the movie isn't one that's very memorable. Still, for how cheap you can find it on blu-ray, it's worth watching and owning.

    What a well-written script with a story line! It yanks at one's honor, values, and trust coupled with action and mystery. The valiant men of this movie stood for so much good and needed to eliminate the evil forces that were taking over. Was good to see the main character get his revenge after he suffered so much degradation (as it seemed losing his mind, wife, and soul). I bought two more copies (they were only about $5.99) and gave them to my children. Loved it!

    If you can deal with a pretty typical Hollywood action flick, knowing not to expect anything phenomenal, and can still be entertained...go for it. Lol. I knew what to expect, so was not let down. I bought it because despite my pickiness with movies, sometimes I am just a sucker for the combination of action and the era of sword-fighting and knights! I said I would recommend it to a friend because there are many people I know who would like this movie...and many that would not.

    No new plot - good guys battle evil emperor and corrupt advisor. Morgan Freeman plays a moral noble who martyrs himself for his cause. His #1 knight (Clive Owen) takes up the sword to uphold the ideals of his master and his oath to his Order to avenge the death of his master - at his own hands. Despite the plot, it has a couple of surprising twists - Clive Owen's character's fall from grace and the ending.

    Saw this the first time on Netflix - happened to be scrolling through (last year some time) and saw Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman - figured I'd give it a go. It's incredible. I love all these medieval type movies, so it fits right in there and the ending?? Awesome! Can't give anything away, but truly worth watching at least once.

    My expectations were not high, but still I usually enjoy this genre a lot, but with this movie the plot just that wasn't believable, plus it was generally depressing through two thirds of the movie, and only fun during the first ten and then the last ten minutes, you could skip everything else.

    Both Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman portray their roles as knights with passion and drama. The action scenes are well done and fun. My only regret was that there is a period mid-film where things become tedious as we watch Clive Owen brood over the death of his master and his role in that death.

    Better than expected, but if more fighting could have been incorporated somehow, it would've upped the stars a bit. It slowed a lot in the middle, but the end was pretty cool. Bad guys do a good job of being greedy, cowardly, and just overall slimy. Clive Owen does good medieval so it was worth a watch.

    Wasn't sure how good this movie was going to be before I watched it. While it casts some really good actors, I had never really heard of it before. However, this really turned out to be a great movie and if you're looking for a medieval actions flick, you should definitely check this one out.

    I like to find movies you don't hear about or know anything about but, it has a star you like or a director you like. You take a chance and buy the movie and it surprizes by being even better than you expected. This is one of those and is well worth watching!

    I bought this movie because I am a Morgan Freeman fan. He delivers in this film. Also, I consider this film to be Clive Owen's best performance ever. And I kept thinking afterwards about how deep the plot was. This is in my top 10 movie favorites. I don't think it deserved the R rating.

    Great actors in the movie Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman to name a few. They keep you involved in the movie. Good action scenes and surprises that I wasn’t expecting to enhance this movie. You will not be disappointed with this movie.

    Love the job Morgan Freeman and Clive Owen did in this film. The movie has good twists and turns, but leaves with a bit of a cliffhanger. That's fine if they make a sequel, but I haven't heard that is happening yet.

    a reimaging of the 47 Ronin, set in a time of knights and honor. While the story is large it focused on the character played by Clive Owen. As he planned with his men the downfall of the scoundrel that betrayed and murdered their lord.

    You have never seen anything quite l like this film. I highly recommend it if you love fast paced samurai warfare and intense action. The writing, photography, lighting and art direction are top notch. A nod to Kurosawa, brilliant.

    The movie starts off great with good main actors. I expected Morgan Freedman to have more of his great acting throughout this movie. The plot was well conducted. I will watch this movie again tonight to see things I had missed in the 1st viewing.

    This movie took my breath away. I ONLY GOT MAD AT ONE PART, BUT I WON'T GIVE THE SCENE AWAY. THE ACTING WAS SUPERB & THE FIGHT SCENES WERE OUTSTANDING. THE DIRECTOR WAS A VISONARY. IT'S A SHAME IT WASN'T NOMINATED FOR AN OSCAR!!!
