The Last Samurai Reviews
The way of the samurai isn't one of merciless killing and chaotic debauchery. It is one that teaches us patience, teaches us what's right and what's wrong, and most of all, teaches us how to really kick someones ass, with style.
The battle sequences were amazing really showing what fighting is really about - just another art form. I became so angered when they brought out the big guns that I really saw the message that the director was putting out there. He was stating that the evil and greedy and cruel are not people who believe in fairness or justice. They will stop at nothing until they fulfill their plagued urge of theirs.
Overall, amazing movie with very important themes and messages all mixed together into one great and epic Samurai movie. Deserves a re-watch.
It's also one of the best movies I've ever seen.
Not only has a solid history and real interesting characters, but it has some of the best battle scenes i have seen in a film and at the end, emotive and powerful.
