Excellent movie, well cast and beautifully crafted. The characters were fully developed and the directing was spot on..Tommy Lee Jones did a wonderful job showing us MacArthur at his arrogant best. Matthew Fox portrayed General Feller brilliantly.. This movie makes me want to delve further into the character and foibles of Douglas MacArthur...Everyone should see this movie.

Enjoyed seeing a film with some meat for thought. Makes you consider opening some history books and visiting the Japan plus almost seventy years!

Great story. One of those tales that come out, long after the fact. Had no idea the US government actually thought to put Hirohito on trial for war crimes. Tommy Lee Jones added a bit of "swagger" to the cast. Understand why he was not central to the story. He delegated the task to a subordinate, which is what 4 star generals do.

My favorite TV channels are the History and Military channels. This movie felt like it came directly from that source so I enjoyed it very much. I also liked that at the end they told what happened to the major players.

the movie was very dull and cheesy... I've never seen Matthew Fox in a worse performance.
