One of the few amazing films with Tom Cruise. Last Samurai earned high ratings immediately after its release in 2003. No wonder Cruise took two whole years to prepare for this film. Acquire the skills of owning a samurai sword, tie a couple of phrases in Japanese, and learn the very culture and customs of Japan in order to feel the spirit and look decent in the frame. And he did it for one hundred percent!

The film tells about the events taking place in Japan in the 70s of the nineteenth century, when the Emperor of Japan decided to change the government policy. This led to wars in which he was supposed to be unmoved. To resolve conflicts, he hired a respected American officer to train his soldiers in battle tactics. Nathan Olgren had no idea how unusual the culture of Japan was, and what he would have to know.
