3.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BATTLES DEFINE GREAT MEN August 29, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
On a distant planet the human overlords are slowly wiping out the indigenous species known as Arids in order to take the planet's raw materials. If it sounds like "Avatar", wait. Griffin (Julian Sands) is the evil human viceroy over the planet which he runs like the Roman Empire.

Moss (Angus Macfadyen )is a rebel that Griffin is hunting and wants to kill. Through a series of events a human named Hirokin (Wes Bentley) winds up in Moss' s camp. Moss knows the old "Way" which is like an oriental earth religion, plus martial arts. He instructs Hirokin in "The Way" so he can unite the tribes and defeat the humans. "The Way" also allows one to see the outcome of their decision before it happens.

The humans have great advances like hover crafts, but fight with swords and spears. It is difficult to tell humans from Arids except by the lines on their hands. They can interbreed, but unfortunately the genocide has caused most of the Arid women to become barren.

To add to the mix there are some woman/breeding/jealousy issues between Griffin, Hirokin, Griffin's barren girlfriend Orange(Jessica Szohr) Hirokin's fertile wife Terra (Mercedes Manning) and Moss's daughter Maren (Laura Ramsey).

The acting and dialogue was fairly bad. They could have interjected some humor from time to time...like "These 2 Arids walk into a bar for the first time and say, "I'll have the usual..."

No f-bombs, sex, nudity. Rape? Woman showers with her clothes on. PG sex talk "submit"

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful March 11, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie is awful. The acting, the plot, the story, the dialogue, everything about this movie was disappointing. I cannot think of any one thing that is good about this movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really Bad January 15, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
With a cast of 20 or 30 and not one original line or idea in the whole movie. Really? the last samurai? He's not even Japanese and not even on Earth, not to mention the sword play was pathetic. I have to wonder how this was ever released in it's current form. The actors should have pooled their money, bought the film and burned it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible writing, bad acting. May 29, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Defiantly a C movie. First off, "The Last Samurai" doesn't have any Asians in it. Stupid choice of a title, but it gets worse. The script must have been the result of a high school English class writing project. The main actor has this confused look all through the movie, as if he really doesn't have a clue. To show what a great warrior he's going to be, he looses his sword at the beginning of the movie,
This should have been priced at 99 cents.

4.0 out of 5 stars The force begins March 13, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I thought hirokin was just like what I would imagine the beginning of the force would be for Star Wars. It's all in the desert and he's basically the chosen one, but since I love these type of movies I really did like it I enjoyed it very much I just thought it could have a little more action
