      I have never appreciated The Last Samurai until it was pointed out at one of the conventions I attended recently. One of the speakers at the convention pointed out that the values and tradition upheld by these ancient Japanese warriors are significant in the building of a person’s character.

      After the convention, I went in search of the DVD at a local store. The Last Samurai was released in 2003, with the main actors being Tom Cruise as


      Nathan Algren, an American military advisor and Ken Watanabe as Lord Katsumoto, a Samurai.

      The period this film depicted was during the Meiji Restoration. A group of ancient Imperial Samurai warriors, led by Katsumoto, was not happy with the reformation that was taking place in Japan. This led them to arrange for a revolt against the Japanese Imperial Army.

      The Emperor of Japan engaged Algren to advise and train the Japanese Imperial Army in the art of modern warfare.


      • The Emperor wanted to eliminate the Samurai warriors in order to prepare to become more modernised and Westernised. However, when Algren was captured by the Samurai warriors, he began to understand and be immersed in the Samurai culture.

        The Last Samurai sees two great actors. I must say that I’m not a big fan of Tom Cruise but he displayed one of his best performance in this movie. He managed to get into the character very well; I’m

        impressed. Ken Watanabe is superb, flawless acting skills he possess there.

        I fell in love with The Last Samurai because of the story that it brings to the world; the story of honour, courage, integrity and tradition. I love it because of the powerful message it brings across, in addition to the fact that it was filmed in beautiful New Zealand, with a fabulous view of the greenery. There is just one word to describe The Last Samurai: superb!
