WITH LEIGH PAATSCH

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

9.15PM, NINE De­spite its breath­tak­ing show­piece skir­mishes, there is more to this Os­car-friendly epic. Tom Cruise stars as a haunted Amer­i­can ex-sol­dier hired to train a new and mod­ernised Em­peror’s Army in 19th-cen­tury Ja­pan. After his cap­ture by a rene­gade Sa­mu­rai war­lord (Ken Watan­abe), al­le­giances change and a show­down be­tween cul­ture and progress looms.
