Summary: Samurai: The last Warriors or Samurai: The last Warrior?
Comment: There seems to be some major confusion about these two similar titles - SAMURAI: The last Warrior narrated by Dr. Stephen Turnbull and SAMURAI: The last Warriors hosted by David Carradine Even the distributors seem to have these titles confused and no one can really say which one they are selling. I have the one by Dr. Stephen Turnball (the last Warrior) and it was very informative but would love to get the other title hosted by David Carradine but cannot seem to find a seller who knows what copy they have. If anyone out there in movie land knows where I can get the one hosted by David Carradine SAMURAI: The Last Warriors I would appreciate it if you could contact me at [...]
Thank you

Summary: Good; Not Great
Comment: It seems that the creators of this documentary could not decide on a target audience. I have studied Japanese history and found the contents of the documentary rather superficial. My family, however, have a rudimentary knowledge of Japanese culture and found the presentation somewhat confusing. They are not familiar with the names of Japanese historical figures or the historical significance of the battles discussed in the film, so it was a bit difficult for them to make the connections of names and places repeated throughout the commentary.

That being said, we are using the confusion of the film as motivation to learn more about the individual samurai/shogun/daimyo and the battles mentioned so that all will make sense upon our next viewing of the DVD. So, YES, it is worth watching multiple times!

Summary: Very well made, with plenty of action balanced with history
Comment: Excellent documentary, on par with the best of History Channel or A&E; productions. Perhaps the only, definitive history of these valiant warriors, from their historic emergence, to their place in folklore. Highly recommended.
