Finally saw this one for the first time in wide screen on Blu Ray and was knocked out by the colors and scene compositions. Watching it in pan and scan format almost completely ruins the movie. Wayne is admirable as always but the overall picture suffers a bit from a meandering script. Actually, I would have preferred to see more of Wayne's character and less of Japan even if it made the running time longer. I did notice that there was a lot of screen time devoted to translation. I recommend it, but I enjoyed "The Conqueror" more.
