I am a Tom Crusie fan. I like a lot of his films, but sometimes they can be either hit or miss. They can be Vanilla Sky (good) or Eyes Wide Shut (bad). While I had high expectations going into this... Full review

The Last Samurai is one of those movies that can't seem to decide what it wants to be. For the first half, it seems focused very much on the mysticism and beauty of Japanese culture and how it saves the tortured... Full review

I have no love for Tom Cruise, but, he was excellent in this movie. The Japanese actors, especially, Watanabe were astonishing. The fight scenes and sceneries were awe inspiring. This one's truly an epic. It's going to make your eyes swollen... Full review

This is by far one of the most captivating, and visually stunning, movies i've ever seen in my Indonesian life. The direction and cinematography were so good, it made me want to move to Japan just cause of its awesome natural... Full review

I loved Master and Commander, but THIS is the ONE. The Last Samurai is Oscar bound. Honesty Courage, Visuals that truly Stun, and Han Zimmers brilliant score. Ken Watanabe deserves much of the credit, those critics complaining about Cruise..I forgot it... Full review

the film is bad or uninspired, it's....Even the usually solid action choreography of the film's action director, Cory Yuen ( Red Cliff ), has a "been there/done that" quality.....it has such a contempt for the audience....Despite the film's many flaws, I do hope....The film is a 90 minute mess that feels like it was made by people who are either just collecting a paycheck.... ...

The Last Samurai" came at the peak of Tom Cruise's career, when he was starring in some of my favorite movies, films like "Minority Report" and "Vanilla Sky" .....Yet, "The Last Samurai" is masterful in its storytelling.....The Last Samurai" is a really great action epic....The main characters are all charismatic and likeable..... ...
