The Last Samurai

content.chilifresh-3The Last Samurai 

Tom Cruise stars as a washed-up Civil War soldier recruited to train the Japanese imperial army in the use of firearms in order to exterminate the few remaining Samurai. After being captured by the Samurai, he studies their ways and eventually joins them. This cinematic feast for the eyes is loosely based on the Satsuma Rebellion led by Samurai Saigō Takamori in 1876 and features a breathtaking score. (MPAA Rating: R)
