Emperor

Rated PG-13 98 minutes 2013

Tame military drama shows post-WWII US Army efforts to prosecute Japanese war criminals through the eyes of Gen. Bonner Fellers (Matthew Fox), a staffer of top American commander Gen. Douglas MacArthur (Tommy Lee Jones). Fellers’ prewar love affair with a Japanese woman (Eriko Hatsune) enters into it, as does the anti-climactic meeting between MacArthur and Emperor Hirohito (Takataro Kataoka). Other than the restrained romantic flashbacks, there’s nothing in this movie that hasn’t been done better before. Directed reverentially by Peter Webber (Hannibal Rising) from a screenplay by Vera Blasi and David Klass, adapting the book by Shiro Okamoto. (106 min.)
