Emperor Review

Emperor is a solid film based on the true story of the reconstruction of Japan after World War 2. The movie is directed by Peter Webber and stars Matthew Fox and Tommy Lee Jones. Fox plays General Bonner Fellers, who was assigned by General MacArthur to covertly investigate the Emperor’s fate while the future of Japan hung in the balance. Fox has to determine if the Emperor should be punished for war crimes or saved. Fellers and MacArthur are in the tough spot of the world wanting the Emperor’s head and the Japanese looking at him as a living God. This is the story of the film.
