Couldn't finish it. Absolute drivel.

With Tommy Lee Jones on the cover of all the artwork I was expecting a bit more of him and didn't expect as much Matthew Fox, but it's really his movie. TLJ as General MaCarthur only pops in & out of the film at key moments.

The movie overall is OK although it is a little historically incorrect and portraits the emperor of Japan as a "good person". Wiki him and you will be amazed to find out about him. The actors get into their roles and this is seen all over the picture. Worth your time to see it!
