In The Last Samurai, Tom Cruise plays Nathan, an American military officer hired by the Emperor of Japan to train the country's first army in the art of modern warfare. But as the government attempts to eradicate the ancient samurai warrior class and embrace more Westernised policies, Nathan finds himself drawn to the culture. Soon, he'll be at the centre of a struggle between two worlds.

The movie offers outstanding action scenes, a sincere performance from Tom Cruise and a brilliant turn from Ken Watanabe, who portrays samurai leader Katsumoto. Clever and compelling, The Last Samurai is definitely worth a stream, especially if you're fascinated by Japanese culture.
