The Last Samurai
An alcoholic American war hero (Tom Cruise) is invited to Japan to train soldiers and teach them to use guns to fight the Samurai.

The hero is captured by the Samurai and soon comes to understand their ways. He joins them to fight the soldiers. The film shows the tension in Japan between the old traditional ways and the push for modernisation.

The movie has some wonderful photography. The story is engaging. It's a long movie, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10
