My favorite movie from year 2003. I don't watch too many Action movies, but this one was amazing. Before you read this review and before I spoil you the story, watch the movie, I highly recommend it. In my opinion, some of the actors roles were just a masterpieces which made an amazing impression on me. The soundtrack is the greatest asset of this film. The Last Samurai is one of the best possible choice for a saturday evening with cinema.
