Oriental Hollywood, or WOW…”47 Ronin” really sucks!

I have always loved the story of the 47 Ronin, or Chushingura.  We were told of it somewhere in our Japanese school lives, a classic heroes tale in which a vassal of loyal warriors to one particular Lord sought to avenge his wrongful death.  It is a story of honor triumphing over corruption, also highlighting a team spirit that is so important to Japanese culture.
