Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 12/05/2003
"...[A] rousing, smoothly assembled historical fantasia....A handsome epic..."
Rolling Stone - 12/25/2003
"...Cruise plays the role with fierce energy and swings a Bushido blade like a pro..."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2004
"[With] some of the most impressively realised battles this side of Middle Earth."
New York Times - 12/05/2003
"Mr. Zwick has absorbed the lethal agility of Akira Kurosawa; what registers just as powerfully as the sureness of the combatants is the ugly futility of the battles themselves."
Los Angeles Times - 12/05/2003
"THE LAST SAMURAI affords the sort of fizzy enjoyment that can come with epic movie endeavors, including a meticulously detailed world unlike our own, an excellent supporting cast and some pulse-pounding fights."
Chicago Sun-Times - 12/05/2003
"Beautifully designed, intelligently written, acted with conviction, it's an uncommonly thoughtful epic."
Widescreen Review - 06/01/2006
"THE LAST SAMURAI is another stirring Civil War-era epic directed by Edward Zwick."
