Cool The Last Samurai.

4/5

Excellent movie! It's based on a true story, right?

the plot, I'm unsure about. the story, however, is true. the Japanese transition from an agricultural and traditional equilibrium to an industrial and capitalist stance actually caused dissent amongst its people in both internal and external spectrums.

the movie was a piece of shit tho. the best part was the emperor's ninjas infiltrating and attacking the village

It's one of my top 5 movies. It hit me like that. I wasn't even roasted when I saw it and it was still powerful to me. I give it a 9/10.

I loved it.

One of the illest movies out there I think.

One of my favorite parts was during the final battle, one of the main Samurai, the one that fixed Cruise's armor before the battle, he gets shot through and through, gets up, spits out his blood, remounts his horse and carries on.

That s**t was gangsta.
