  • Summary: This movie is seriously rubbish, seems just like a typical weeaboo movie. It is seriously biased towards the japanese where they are trying to justify their bloody actions happened during the World War

This could and should have been so much better

  • Excerpt: Tommy Lee Jones is perfectly cast as MacArthur but the story line of this film is very weak and does not justify such a casting. The fictional love story is ridiculous in both fact and in the way it simply does not work in the plot.

  • Summary: I knew that Tommy Lee Jones as MacArthur was probably the worst miscasting since the invention of the motion picture. But I hoped for a miracle, that somehow that old dogfaced Texan could transform himself into the patrician MacArthur. He couldn't. It was simply awful.

  • Summary: Based around a dark time in both Japanese and American history, Emperor is a subtle and beautiful story of a return to normalcy and the empathy that can come from anyone, even one of your worst enemies.

The Last Emperor review

Daniel Corleone, FilmCrave
23 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Started out well with slight humor when the Emperor was still a kid then somewhat fizzles towards the end. The plot revolves around the Puyi (John Lone), the last emperor of China. The direction was meticulous and detailed while the extras/wardrobe was extravagant.

  • Summary: Surprisingly someone like tommy lee jones has compelled with a war film and Peter Webber has made a film so special that anyone will cry at the climax. When I mean anyone I mean everyone.

A Beautiful Epic

Grey Gardens, IMDb
13 August 2010
  • Summary: The Last Emperor is a truly larger than life film telling us about a life of a human, but not just any human, the Emperor himself. He's also not your normal emperor, he's the Last Emperor of China, his name is Pu Yi. He lives his life however he wants to and he sort has a larger than life persona.
