Captured and imprisoned by the outlawed warriors, Algren is slowly swayed by their strict adherence to the honourable code of Bushido and, when the Emperor's forces mass once again, Algren offers to join his former captors in an effort to preserve their way of life...

this is surely will be considered a classic at some point.
'captain nathan algren' a veteran of the 'indian' wars, now helps promote the sale of the 'winchester' rifle, haunted with past deeds he drowns his memories at the bottom of a bottle........he had lost his way in life.
he is offered a post in japan to train the new japanese army.
the new authorities have the ear of the young emperor, they intend to destroy what until recently were the 'emperors' protector and sword....the samurai.
despite 'nathan insisting that the recruits were not ready they are sent to face the fearsome warriors in battle.
the fight was one-sided, the recruits were over-run, 'nathan' is captured, his life spared by the 'samurai' leader 'katsumoto' who had seen the bravery of the american.
at the 'samurai' village 'nathan' treated as a guest and begins to learn the values and skills of his hosts.
the 'samurai' as a matter of honour only fight with swords and bows and will not use modern weapons............the, now enemy however have the new weapons...............a final conflict is coming.
'nathan' is asked by a young boy ''will you kill the white man'' he answers ''yes'' asked why , he answers ''because they come to destroy what i have come to love''
a brilliant movie, with some superb battle scences and great story-line in which 'tom cruise ' is dynamic.................the film in 'steelbook' is a great collector' item........enjoy
