Decorated Civil War veteran Nathan Algren (Cruise) is sent to Japan to train and lead the Emperor's troops in modern Western, gunpowder intensive, warfare to eliminate the country's remaining rebelling samurai.

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 film is simply amazing. I know people who say the first half is boring and it only get's going when the fighting starts. This isn't a film just of battles, it's an emotional story of a people fighting for survival. The score is first class, Tom Cruise I wouldn't have picked for this role and is a surprise as he fits it perfectly. The production and potrayal of the Japanese Samurai is authentic and even Billy Connolly is good for his part. I would say people who don't like the film really don't understand it all. It's much more than I would have expected. Simply brilliant.

     Epic action movie with a great look into Samurai Japan!

    The Last Samurai is a truly great action movie as its cinematography and acting make it a beautifully crafted tale
    of the demise of Samurai Japan.

    The action sequences are rewarding and plentiful and Tom Cruise is birlliant!

    saw this at the cinema when it came out.an epic in every sense of the word.stirring,clever,well written,tom cruise proves he can act (i always said he could) and the other cast members are outstanding.when this was on at the cinema,i stood up at the end with tears in my eyes and clapped till my hands hurt.how many films have had that effect on people ? my only regret was that i saw the last showing on the day it was finishing at my local cinema so i never got chance to go and see it again.many western films about feudal japan ignore the rich culture of the time.this film showed how the samurai when not in battle,had normal family lives and how they all lived.fantastic film,fantastic experience.

     Stirring & powerful historic epic

    Stunning cinematography and beautiful scenery combined with great action sequences.

    Connoly & Spall doing great work too. Watanabe's finest performance to date. And solid evidence that Tom Cruise can act too!

     Great film it has the lot.

    Hi Tom Cruise is not always my cup of tea, but in The Last Samurai he is spot on, great performances from everyone, lots of action, a great story, and on extras disc loads footage, enjoy it.
