Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: Too much surface and not enough depth.
- Connie Ogle, Miami Herald, Friday, December 5, 2003
Rotten: There are pleasures to be had in the handsome, heroic The Last Samurai. But they're all on the surface.
- David Ansen, Newsweek, Tuesday, December 16, 2003
Rotten: Despite its intelligent agenda, swollen heart and fabulously epic surface, amounts to a didactic banality: a white guy's politically correct lesson abroad.
