The Last Samurai  DEC 08 2003  rating: 3.0 stars

The Last Samurai reminded me a lot of Braveheart. Both starred actors that are hugely successful but who have audiences divided and sometimes puzzled over their genuine acting ability. The ending battle scenes were very similar, even down to the surprise battle tactics used against the superior forces. Both Mel and Cruise played the unlikely/unwilling hero of the underdog. And I liked both movies about the same.
