The Last Samurai


$20.00 Released May, 2004

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Successfully depicts a piece of Japan's history. Nice portrayal of traditional lifestyles and values. Violence always serves the plot, never gratuitous.

The Cons:The final battle is anti-climactic, makes no sense. Too much focus on Cruise's character, when the supporting characters are more interesting.

In Japan, Civil War veteran Captain Nathan Algren trains the Emperor's troops to use modern weapons as they prepare to defeat the last of the country's samurais. But Algren's passion is swayed when he is captured by the samurai and learns about their traditions and code of honor.
