A beautifully depicted film showing the way of the last Samurai. Tom cruise Give a a convincing and compelling performance as does the other cast members. A must see, with moments of real heart felt, tear jerking for the viewer. This film will stay truly close to my heart.


Being a Fan of Samurai and Japan in General, I adore this Film. Tom Cruise does a lot of Movies but this is the only one were I don't see Tom Cruise, I just see Nathan Algren. Tom Cruise is an awesome Actor but the Films he usually does and the Characters he portrays are typical for Tom Cruise, there you just see Tom Cruise doing what Tom Cruise does. The Last Samurai is just Heartwarming and dramatic. From the first to the last minute, this Film just nails everything a Movie needs to do. You feel everything.


The Last Samurai is a good Edward Zwick movie starring Tom Cruise and Ken Watabane. Featuring some gorgeous Japanese landscapes and great action sequences this film is a fine recommendation for any history, drama or historical action films. Tom Cruise as the foreign officer is good and still commands the screen but it is Watabane who walks away as the scene stealer as the Emperor. The music deserves a mention and Hans Zimmer provides an amazing soundtrack which rivals most other epics such as Braveheart.

Such an amazing film!Tom Cruise is definitely one of my favorite actors (if not my favorite) and this film is one of his best (if not the best film). This has to be one of my all-time favorite movies. Definitely worth watching, you won't regret it!I watched this without knowing what to expect and trust me the movie won me from the first moment, as the movie goes on it's just getting better and better, Tom Cruise at his very best!In my opinion this deserves to be on the Top 250 list, This film is honestly one of the best dramas/war dramas I have ever seen, combined with a superb story, and action of amazing creativity in the dialogue, setting and all the scenes! Truly Oscar worthy, a shame it didn't win any, the makers of the film really deserved more credit.My Rating Is 9/10 .
