The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - What To Watch Today -

Take it from a non-Tom Cruise fan: this movie is worth the watch. Cruise is Capt. Nathan Al­gren, an Amer­i­can mil­i­tary of­fi­cer hired by the Em­peror of Ja­pan to train the coun­try’s first army in the art of mod­ern war­fare. As the gov­ern­ment at­tempts to erad­i­cate the an­cient Sa­mu­rai war­rior class in prepa­ra­tion for more Western­ised and trade-friendly poli­cies, Al­gren finds him­self un­ex­pect­edly af­fected by his en­coun­ters with the Sa­mu­rai, which places him at the cen­ter of a strug­gle be­tween two eras and two worlds. Grand!
