"Wow why did I wait so long to watch this--"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I've resisted watching this for the last 10 years because I don't like Tom Cruise at all in any way. Now I have relented and watched, and I so wish I had seen it on the big screen, it is so damn good. I stopped even thinking about it being Tom Cruise there was so much other amazing stuff happening. A battle classic along the lines of Dances with Wolves or The last of the Mohicans or Braveheart. If you haven't seen it, buy it now!!

"Sensational"
5 stars"

A fantastic plot wound around an intriguing premise. Tom Cruise does a stunning job for this movie and truly empowers it with life. The story is that of machinery and greed taking over the once proud traditions and historic cultures that had held Japan up for so long. It is a nice story wrapped in a Japanese backdrop and the scenery is just stunning. Ken Watanabe's per­formance is just brilliant as always and the rest of the cast and crew do a fantastic job of drawing you into this world.

This film is a great adventure and I recommend it for everyone.

Description

Captain Nathan Algren (Tom Cruise) is a man adrift. The battles he once fought now seem distant and futile. Once he risked his life for honor and country, but, in the years since the Civil War, the world has changed. Pragmatism has replaced courage, self-interest has taken the place of sacrifice and honor is nowhere to be found – especially out West where his role in the Indian Campaigns ended in disillusionment and sorrow.

Somewhere on the unforgiving plains near the banks of the Washita River, Algren lost his soul.

A universe away, another soldier sees his way of life about to disintegrate. He is Katsumoto (Ken Watanabe), the last leader of an ancient line of warriors, the venerated Samurai, who dedicated their lives to serving emperor and country. Just as the modern way encroached upon the American West, cornering and condemning the Native American, it also engulfed traditional Japan. The telegraph lines and railroads that brought progress now threaten those values and codes by which the Samurai have lived and died for centuries.

But Katsumoto will not go without a fight.
