Emperor? Nah!

This was a bad movie. Tommy Lee Jones had a cameo, with one pose and a dozen lines. The only "historical" focus was the story line that he was in. Not much of an "historical" movie. The subplot, the stupid love story, was so unbelievable as to be laughable. If the costuming hadn't been different, it would have be impossible to tell when the scenes were flashbacks. The direction was so poor, the poor actors didn't know what they were supposed to be doing but the worst was the editing. This movie had no flow, no continuity, the choices the editor and director made were just awful. While I appreciate the attempt to teach me something about the American occupation of Japan after the war, there was so little fact and so much emphasis on the dumb love story that this was one of those movies you walk away from saying, "Oh, well, that's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back." Really bad movie.

A really good movie. We were surprised, hadn't heard anything about it. It was moving to see the two sides that hated and misunderstood each other find a way to come together and move on from the war. Jeff

Michael Fox was great. History was very interesting. Tommy Lee Jones is a natural. I rate it a 4.
