  1. It is a wonder why I needed another 480P version of this movie. When you purchase ‘blueray’ you may think at least 780P but not with this one. I guess I should have been more careful but with all the hype I assumed the movie would be in a higher def.

  2. This movie is very un_american. It is ashamed to see Tom Cruise bow to the Japanese Emperor. It makes me sick and uncomfortable. YUCK!

  3. Next to ‘Batman Begins’ this is truly one over-rated movie!!

    ‘The Last Samurai’ totally romanticizes war, the samurai code, violence, suicide and killing amoung soldiers. and it has one of the most predictable and cliche endings to any film i’ve ever seen.

    skip this one – it is a waste!

  4. Bottom line ….. “Dances with Wolves” in Japan.

    And Tom Cruise is just a bad actor period.

  5. This movie, which I looked forward to seeing, let me down on many different levels. Much has been written about “Braveheart Visits Japan” and as much as I hate to admit it, the suggestion fits. I have always enjoyed the spirit of Tom Cruise, but he lets me down in this movie, despite his clear effort to lift it above the action flick genre. It does not inspire. It does not engage. It does not even entertain too well, although the choreography of the fight sequences is very good. I left the theater with the same kind of feeling I have when I observe a good special effects movie – empty – kind of like, uh, Asian food?
