    "The Last Samurai is one of the best samurai movies ever, if not the best. It offers a glimpse into the Japanese culture and tradition, and about the life of a true Japanese warlord Moritsugu Katsumoto. Of course, having Tom Cruise play the lead role doesn't hurt as he gave one of the better performances in his career in this movie. "
