As I was scrolling through Netflix last night I came across The Last Samurai staring Tom Cruise, and upon seeing the name "Tom Cruise" I was immediately interested. I started this movie not knowing what to expect, and when I was about 10 minutes in I totally forgot that the main character was Tom Cruise. Not because he is not in the movie, but because his portrayal of this main character was so interesting. He plays a drunken war hero who does not care about who he kills or why he kills them. He is only in it for the money, until he stumbles upon the Samurai culture. Then his whole outlook on life begins to change. This is a gorgeous looking movie that has great character arcs, and amazing action. I did not feel the two and a half hour run time at all, this film flew by! It is a great film that is very underrated. Please check it out on Netflix before it is taken off!
