Emperor Review: Tommy Lee Jones Takes Over

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Tommy Lee Jones is the reason to see Emperor. In fact, we wish he had been in the film more. Don't get us wrong, we adore Matthew Fox's work over the years, but the most fascinating part of the story of America and its occupying of Japan after World War II is the enormous responsibility given General MacArthur. The man who helped orchestrate victory in the Pacific Theater was sent to Japan to help rebuild it and more importantly, figure out what to do with that country's Emperor.
