Tommy Lee Jones' performance as Gen. Douglas MacArthur - complete with pipe and sunglasses - is this drama's true spark, but much of the focus is on one of the military legend's aides, a general (Matthew Fox, "Lost") tasked with deciding whether Japan's Emperor Hirohito (Takataro Kataoka) should be tried and executed for war crimes.

A resurfaced relationship from the past makes the mission more difficult. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by director Peter Webber and producer Yoko Narahashi; deleted scenes; photo galleries. *** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
