While it certainly is not groundbreaking or original, Edward Zwick's The Last Samurai doesn't succeed in telling a moving story in a well-crafted manner, while the film succeeds in its dull tagline that Zwick was trying to develop.

Another tired Tom Cruise performance.. or maybe it was the box he was in atm. I guess he did it as well as anyone could for this typically Hollywood "big" picture. The other performances saved the movie... Japanese characters were great!

Movie was disappointing. Too fake and isn't raw enough. There are few things that bother me; How did Taka & her family suddenly got close to Algred and how Katsumoto grew to be compassionate with Algred when he is the so called Samurai. The movie didn't live up to its title. However, Tom Cruise's performance was undeniably good. Expand
