Like Imperial Japan of the time, this film was overly ambitious. It tries to carry a main plot and two subplots and just doesn't have the firepower to handle it. You are introduced to all 3 early on (Investigation of war crimes, general staff back-stabbing and rivalry, romance in flashback) but by the halfway point, the romance takes center stage for some reason and other two just sort of dissolve into nothing, leaving star power like Tommy Lee Jones wasted in the role. One gets the feeling that writers had something much grander in mind. A long epic, perhaps, but maybe a studio boss decided it needed to be short and sweet and a whole lot of things ended up on the cutting room floor. To be honest, the fictional tale of romance (General Bonner Fellers was actually married) must have been added to try and stave of being classified as some dry docudrama, yet a docudrama would have been preferable in my opinion since this period of time is fascinating and has never really been dealt with in film with any level of detail. I gave two stars. One for acting which is fair to good, and one for the cinematography. The film "looks" good. Just a side note: I find it difficult or impossible to believe that a General on MacArthur's staff would just stroll around, alone, without some sort of attending soldiers or bodyguards in occupied territory. This bothered me throughout the film and I admit, it took me out of the film quite a bit when it happened, which was often.
For the TLDR crowd: Missed opportunity. Potential good historical movie ends up being really kind of a boring lost romance tear jerker. If it's Prime free take a shot. If not, save your money.

If it weren't for the fact that Amazon doesn't allow zero stars, I would give this awful movie ZERO.
We watched the movie (I wouldn’t call it a “film”) “Emperor” last night. While I appreciate the stated motivation behind making the movie, elevating the profile of black heroes fighting for their own freedom and justice, when you fictionalize a true story with so many untruths and distortions, you not only fail in that attempt, you do a tremendous disservice to the actual drive to unveil the history and shine a true light on African-American heroism. It’s as if they were trying to turn Shields Green into a 19th century “Black Panther” as in the 2018 blockbuster movie. I strongly discourage everyone from watching this movie. If it weren’t for the fact that my wife and I are “John Brown” people who have studied and written on the story of John Brown, his friends, compatriots, and family for twenty-five years, and are almost required to see it, I would have passed it by just based on the horrific reviews that have already come in. The reviewers were looking at it primarily as a movie, and dealt in issues such as the screenplay, the direction, production, even the bad wigs. They largely didn’t deal with the fact that about 99 and 99 one hundredths percent of it is not only fiction, but an absolutely egregious pack of lies about the characters and events that took place around Shields Green and John Brown in 1859.
It’s easy to see why the moviemakers would choose Shields Green. Out of the 5 black members of John Brown’s Harper’s Ferry company, his story is the one most shrouded in mystery. There is very little actually know about him, so it would be easiest to fictionalize his story. I’ll get to correcting the lies in the movie in a minute or two. I couldn’t possibly get to them all since they are most of the movie, so I’ll try to focus on the biggest ones. Let me begin with the only stuff in the movie that’s actually true, then we’ll move on to the things that are false. Basically the truths fall into 4 short categories. Anything other than these small things can be completely dismissed as fiction, or worse, damned lies. True: 1. Shields Green was a real person, escaped enslavement from South Carolina, eventually met Frederick Douglass, and fought with John Brown at Harper’s Ferry, Virginia. He did leave his son behind in slavery. He DID engage in a conversation with John Brown and Frederick Douglass in a quarry at Chambersburg, Pennsylvania in the summer of 1859, but far from how it was depicted in the movie. 2. John Brown, Oliver Brown, Watson Brown, Dangerfield Newby, Levi Coffin, Frederick Douglass, and Robert E. Lee were all real people. While they name J.E.B. Stuart, also a real person, in the ending credits, we are never introduced to him by name or word in the movie. (notice that I did NOT say that anything these characters said or did in the movie bears any resemblance to the truth, although there actually WERE some true quotes, believe it or not.) 3. There was an encounter between John Brown & his men and U.S. Marines in blue uniforms at Harper’s Ferry in which Brown and Co. were defeated. Both Brown’s sons were shot during the melee, but, contrary to the movie, while Oliver did die on site. Watson suffered for hours after his capture and died in custody. 4. The drawing of Shields Green and the Daguerreotype images of John Brown, Oliver Brown, Watson Brown, Levi Coffin and Frederick Douglass shown in the ending credits are real historical images.
False? Pretty much everything else.
The movie portrays Shields “Emperor” Green as some sort of superhero. He was not. He did not murder the overseer and his cohort after the overseer (fictional character) flogged Green’s son Tommy. Tommy? No one knows what Green’s son’s name was, and he was not that old when Green left him behind to go north. Green was not running with his wife through the woods when she was shot in the back, whereupon he had to leave her and go on. Balderdash. Green was a widower, but his wife probably died either shortly after giving birth to their son, or as a result of some other health crisis without adequate medical attention. Their son could not have been more than five years old when Green fled. The true story is that he escaped from slavery on a ship, one that probably transported a cargo of cotton bales, out of Charleston harbor sailing north along the eastern seaboard. Green stowed away below decks, probably with the help of a sympathetic or friendly seaman. (The movie repeatedly focuses on Greensboro as his escape portal? How did they think that up?) He disembarked in New York City. His escape did not take place in 1859 as stated in the movie, but at least a few years before that.
By saying that Shields Green escaped in 1859, the movie fills in a huge time gap wherein the “Emperor” actually traveled around the country. Green claimed he left New York and went to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, a little too close to the Mason-Dixon Line for comfort and security. Sometime most likely in 1856 he went to Rochester, New York wherein he met and visited with Frederick Douglass. But even that town on Lake Ontario was not completely safe for a fugitive, so, apparently encouraged by Douglass, Green crossed over into Canada. He lived in St. Catharines for probably the better part of 2 years, returning to Rochester in probably early 1859. Contrary to the impression left by the film that he met John Brown in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, they actually met earlier that year at Frederick Douglass’s home most likely in early April. It was that summer when Brown, planning the Harper’s Ferry action from his headquarters in nearby rural Maryland, sent an urgent request to Douglass asking him to travel down to Chambersburg for a meeting. He said he wanted to discuss a change in plans, and suggested Douglass should bring Shields Green with him. Douglass and Green traveled by train, and created quite a stir when they disembarked on the platform in Chambersburg, almost exposing the clandestine meeting. In fact, Douglass was approached on the platform by a couple of local abolitionists who recognized him, wondering if he wasn’t there to deliver a lecture. When Douglass said no, they engaged him to do so, which he agreed to do as a way of diverting them from his secret appointment. Douglass and Green met with Brown and his lieutenant, John Kagi, for two days in a quarry on the edge of town. It was apparently a heated debate about the wisdom of the plan. Contrary to the movie, according to Douglass, Green did not join in the conversation until the very end, when Frederick turned to Green and, not assuming what his decision would be, asked Shields what he was going to do. Here, the movie actually got the quote right. Green said, “I believe I’ll go wi’ the ole man.”
Then there is Harper’s Ferry. The action there, as depicted in this ridiculous movie, bears absolutely no resemblance to what happened October 16, 17 and 18, 1859. First of all, there were, in fact, 5 black members of John Brown’s company. Almost as soon as Shields Green joins the company he is introduced to Dangerfield Newby (whose actual true story is far more detailed in history and more poignant than Green’s) but where are the other three? (Osborne Perry Anderson, John Anthony Copeland, and Lewis Sheridan Leary) One finally shows up, unidentified, when Lt. Colonel Lee captures the remaining raiders in what? A catacomb?? He’s standing there frozen in fear with 3 white guys on his right and 1 white guy on his left. Who are these guys?
The set for this version of John Brown’s raid is an elaborate fort. What? A very shallow, cursory look into the actual story will reveal to anyone that John Brown’s “fort” was, in fact, a fire engine house about the size of a large 2-car garage, and several of his men were stationed in other places around the town of Harper’s Ferry. Just go to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park and you can see the “fort” and even go inside, even though the building was moved from its original location.
The battle in this movie is ridiculous balderdash. There are lots of clashes, lots of soldiers being killed, Brown’s men firing from brick windows all in a row, and they even have a CANNON! Where did that come from?! Neither John Brown nor Robert E. Lee had or used a cannon. Absurd. Then, when all seems lost, what does our superhero “Emperor” do? The coward jumps on a horse and rides away! (Commonly known as desertion.) His old nemesis, the bounty hunter Luke McCabe (where do they come up with these characters and names?) takes aim and gets off a shot, supposedly wounding him, but he rides away anyway.
Sorry folks, but I’m gonna spoil the ending. Since it’s all a lie, you should know before you see it. Green is pursued by McCabe, of course. He holds up in a church steeple somewhere in the countryside, where McCabe corners him. But our hero has cleverly set up a “bomb” of a full keg of gunpowder, (how did he transport THAT on horseback?) and when he has the opportunity, he blows up the steeple with McCabe in it, but dives out the window in the nick of time, diving into the incredibly deep river below, where he becomes a new hero, something like Aquaman! He gets away and then we have a couple of epilogues. One is where Levi Coffin (the real white-guy hero) brings a bunch of money and buys Green’s son Tommy from the old master, and then Green is magically reunited with his son. The final epilogue is years later when Tommy, all grown up now, is taking the manuscript of his book of the story of his father to a publisher to get it published. The book is entitled… wait for it… EMPEROR!
Okay, folks. The real ending? Not so pretty. Shields Green was captured in the engine house along with Brown and a handful of the others by Lee’s men, in a charge led by J.E.B. Stuart. They were all tried and convicted and on the 16th of December that year, along with one of the other black raiders, John Anthony Copeland, Shields Green was hanged in Charlestown, Virginia. Dead. He did not reunite with his son, who never wrote a book about his father. There WAS a book written by one of the other black raiders, the only book written by anyone in the company. Osborne Perry Anderson’s book is entitled A VOICE FROM HARPER’S FERRY. You can buy it online from Amazon.com!
If you want to know more about Green, please refer to the very excellent book, newly published by New York University Press, written by Louis DeCaro, Jr. who is probably THE pre-eminent biographer of John Brown and historian of the entire story, its roots and its legacy. His book is called THE UNTOLD STORY OF SHIELDS GREEN: THE LIFE AND DEATH OF A HARPER’S FERRY RAIDER, also available through Amazon.com. Lou also has an excellent blog page wherein he comments on all things related.
Unless you like total re-writes of history, steer clear of EMPEROR. It’s laughably horrible. I feel pity for James Cromwell, an otherwise fine actor that he had the foolishness to throw in with this piece of trash, playing the role of John Brown.
If your rating system is 5 stars, it gets none. If it’s rotten tomatoes, it gets five green splats. If it’s thumbs up, in our house it gets 4 thumbs down!
The Last Emperor
1987 epic biographical drama film by Bernardo Bertolucci
For other uses, see Last Emperor (disambiguation).
The Last Emperor (Italian: L'ultimo imperatore; Chinese: 末代皇帝) is a 1987 epicbiographical drama film, directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, about the life of Puyi, the last Emperor of China, whose 1964 autobiography was the basis for the screenplay written by Bertolucci and Mark Peploe. Independently produced by Jeremy Thomas, it was directed by Bertolucci and released in 1987 by Columbia Pictures. Puyi's life is depicted from his ascent to the throne as a small boy to his imprisonment and political rehabilitation by the Communist Party of China.
The film stars John Lone as Puyi, with Joan Chen, Peter O'Toole, Ruocheng Ying, Victor Wong, Dennis Dun, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Maggie Han, Ric Young, Vivian Wu, and Chen Kaige. It was the first Western feature film authorized by the People's Republic of China to film in the Forbidden City in Beijing. At the 60th Academy Awards it won nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director.
By 1950, Puyi has been kept in custody for five years, since the Red Army captured him during the Soviet invasion of Manchuria at the end of World War II. In the recently established People's Republic of China, Puyi arrives as a political prisoner and war criminal at the Fushun Prison. Soon after his arrival, Puyi attempts suicide, but is quickly rescued and told he must stand trial.
42 years earlier, in 1908, a toddler Puyi is summoned to the Forbidden City by the dying Empress Dowager Cixi. After telling him that the previous emperor had died earlier that day, Cixi tells Puyi that he is to be the next emperor. After his coronation, Puyi, frightened by his new surroundings, repeatedly expresses his wish to go home, but is denied. Despite having scores of palace eunuchs and maids to wait on him, his only real friend is his wet nurse, Ar Mo.
As he grows up, his upbringing is confined entirely to the imperial palace and is prohibited from leaving. One day, he is visited by his younger brother, Pujie, who tells him he is no longer Emperor and that China has become a republic; that same day, Ar Mo is forced to leave. In 1919, the kindly Reginald Johnston is appointed as Puyi's tutor and gives him a Western-style education, and Puyi becomes increasingly desirous to leave the Forbidden City. Johnston, wary of the courtiers' expensive lifestyle, convinces Puyi that the best way of achieving this is through marriage; Puyi subsequently weds Wanrong, with Wenxiu as a secondary consort.
Puyi then sets about reforming the Forbidden City, including expelling the thieving palace eunuchs. However, in 1924, he himself is expelled from the palace and exiled to Tientsin following the Beijing Coup. He leads a decadent life as a playboy and Anglophile, and sides with Japan after the Mukden Incident. During this time, Wenxiu divorces him, but Wanrong remains and eventually succumbs to opium addiction. In 1934, the Japanese crown him "Emperor" of their puppet state of Manchukuo, though his supposed political supremacy is undermined at every turn. Wanrong gives birth to a child, but the baby is murdered at birth by the Japanese and proclaimed stillborn. He remains the nominal ruler of the region until his capture by the Red Army.
Under the Communist re-education program for political prisoners, Puyi is coerced by his interrogators to formally renounce his forced collaboration with the Japanese invaders during the Second Sino-Japanese War. After heated discussions with Jin Yuan, the warden of the Fushun Prison, and watching a film detailing the wartime atrocities committed by the Japanese, Puyi eventually recants and is considered rehabilitated by the government; he is subsequently released in 1959.
Several years later in 1967, Puyi has become a simple gardener who lives a peasant proletarian existence following the rise of Mao Zedong's cult of personality and the Cultural Revolution. On his way home from work, he happens upon a Red Guard parade, celebrating the rejection of landlordism by the communists. He sees Jin Yuan, now one of the political prisoners punished as an anti-revolutionary in the parade, forced to wear a dunce cap and a sandwich board bearing punitive slogans.
Puyi later visits the Forbidden City where he meets an assertive young boy wearing the red scarf of the Pioneer Movement. The boy orders Puyi to step away from the throne, but Puyi proves that he was indeed the Son of Heaven before approaching the throne. Behind it, Puyi finds a 60-year-old pet cricket that he was given by palace official Chen Baochen on his coronation day and gives it to the child. Amazed by the gift, the boy turns to talk to Puyi, but finds that he has disappeared.
In 1987, a tour guide leads a group through the palace. Stopping in front of the throne, the guide sums up Puyi's life in a few, brief sentences, before concluding that he died in 1967.
Bernardo Bertolucci proposed the film to the Chinese government as one of two possible projects – the other was an adaptation of La Condition humaine (Man's Fate) by André Malraux. The Chinese preferred The Last Emperor. Producer Jeremy Thomas managed to raise the $25 million budget for his ambitious independent production single-handedly. At one stage, he scoured the phone book for potential financiers. Bertolucci was given complete freedom by the authorities to shoot in The Forbidden City, which had never before been opened up for use in a Western film. For the first ninety minutes of the film, Bertolucci and Storaro made full use of its visual splendour.
Tony Leung Ka-fai was originally asked to play the titular role but turned the offer due to previous commitments. The role eventually went to John Lone.
19,000 extras were needed over the course of the film. The People's Liberation Army was drafted in to accommodate.
In a 2010 interview with Bilge Ebiri for Vulture.com, Bertolucci recounted the shooting of the Cultural Revolution scene:
Before shooting the parade scene, I put together four or five young directors whom I had met, [including] Chen Kaige — who also plays a part in the film, he’s the captain of the guard — and Zhang Yimou. I asked them about the Cultural Revolution. And suddenly it was like I was watching a psychodrama: They started to act out and cry, it was extraordinary. I think there is a relationship between these scenes in The Last Emperor and in 1900. But many things changed between those two films, for me and for the world.
Main article: The Last Emperor (album)
While not included on the album soundtrack, the following music was played in the film: "Am I Blue?" (1929), "Auld Lang Syne" (uncredited), and "China Boy" (1922) (uncredited). The Northeastern Cradle Song was sung by Ar Mo twice in the film.
Hemdale Film Corporation acquired all North American distribution rights to the film on behalf of producer Thomas, who raised a large sum of the budget himself. Hemdale, in turn, licensed theatrical rights to Columbia Pictures, who were initially reluctant to release it, and only after shooting was completed did the head of Columbia agree to distribute The Last Emperor in North America. Hemdale licensed its video rights to Nelson Entertainment, which released the film on VHS and Laserdisc. The film also received a Laserdisc release in Australia in 1992, through Columbia Tri-Star Video. Years later, Artisan Entertainment acquired the rights to the film and released both the theatrical and extended versions on home video. In February 2008 The Criterion Collection (under license from now-rights-holder Thomas) released a four disc Director-Approved edition, again containing both theatrical and extended versions. Criterion released a Blu-ray version on 6 January 2009.
The Last Emperor had an unusual run in theatres. It did not enter the weekend box office top 10 until its twelfth week in which the film reached #7 after increasing its gross by 168% from the previous week and more than tripling its theatre count (this was the weekend before it was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture). Following that week, the film lingered around the top 10 for 8 weeks before peaking at #4 in its 22nd week (the weekend after winning the Oscar) (increasing its weekend gross by 306% and nearly doubling its theatre count from 460 to 877) and spending 6 more weeks in the weekend box office top 10. Were it not for this late push, The Last Emperor would have joined The English Patient, Amadeus, and The Hurt Locker as the only Best Picture winners to not enter the weekend box office top 5 since these numbers were first recorded in 1982.
The film was converted into 3D and shown in the Cannes Classics section at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
The film received critical acclaim. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has an 89% "Certified Fresh" score based on 72 reviews, with an average rating of 8.04/10. The site's consensus states: "While decidedly imperfect, Bernardo Bertolucci's epic is still a feast for the eyes."Metacritic reports a 76 out of 100 rating based on 15 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".
Roger Ebert was notably enthusiastic in his praise of the film, awarding it four stars out of four; he wrote that "Bertolucci is able to make Pu Yi's imprisonment seem all the more ironic because this entire film was shot on location inside the People's Republic of China, and he was even given permission to film inside the Forbidden City — a vast, medieval complex covering some 250 acres and containing 9,999 rooms (only heaven, the Chinese believed, had 10,000 rooms). It probably is unforgivably bourgeois to admire a film because of its locations, but in the case of "The Last Emperor" the narrative cannot be separated from the awesome presence of the Forbidden City, and from Bertolucci's astonishing use of locations, authentic costumes and thousands of extras to create the everyday reality of this strange little boy."Jonathan Rosenbaum, comparing The Last Emperor favourably to Steven Spielberg's Empire of the Sun, claimed that "[a]t best, apart from a few snapshots, Empire of the Sun teaches us something about the inside of one director's brain. The Last Emperor incidentally and secondarily does that too; but it also teaches us something about the lives of a billion people with whom we share this planet—and better yet, makes us want to learn still more about them."
In Japan, the Shochiku Fuji Company edited out a thirty-second sequence from The Last Emperor depicting the Rape of Nanjing before distributing it to Japanese theatres, without Bertolucci's consent. Bertolucci was furious at Shochiku Fuji's interference with his film, calling it "revolting". The company quickly restored the scene, blaming "confusion and misunderstanding" for the edit while opining that the Rape sequence was "too sensational" for Japanese audiences.
Jeremy Thomas recalled the approval process for the screenplay with the Chinese government: "It was less difficult than working with the studio system. They made script notes and made references to change some of the names, then the stamp went on and the door opened and we came."
The British historian Alex von Tunzelmann wrote that the movie considerably downplays and misrepresents the emperor's cruelty, especially during his youth. As stated by Tunzelmann and Behr (author of the 1987 book The Last Emperor), Puyi engaged in sadistic abuse of palace servants and subordinates during his initial reign well in excess of what Bertolucci's movie portrays, frequently having eunuchs beaten for mild transgressions or no reason at all; in a demonstrative example, the young emperor once conspired to force a eunuch to eat a cake full of iron filings simply to see the eunuch's reaction, which he was talked out of by his beloved wet nurse with some difficulty. Tunzelmann states that most people worldwide who have heard of Puyi are likely to have an incorrect understanding of this aspect of the emperor's reign, as the movie is much more popular globally than more accurate biographies.
The film's theatrical release ran 160 minutes. Deemed too long to show in a single three-hour block on television but too short to spread out over two nights, an extended version was created which runs 218 minutes. Cinematographer Vittorio Storaro and director Bernardo Bertolucci have confirmed that this extended version was indeed created as a television miniseries and does not represent a "director's cut".
The Criterion Collection 2008 version of four DVDs adds commentary by Ian Buruma, composer David Byrne, and the Director's interview with Jeremy Isaacs (ASIN: B000ZM1MIW, ISBN 978-1-60465-014-3). It includes a booklet featuring an essay by David Thomson, interviews with production designer Ferdinando Scarfiotti and actor Ying Ruocheng, a reminiscence by Bertolucci, and an essay and production-diary extracts from Fabien S. Gerard.

Emperor | Full Movie | Movies Anywhere
Parents need to know that Emperor is a historical drama based on the true story of Shields "Emperor" Green (Dayo Okeniyi), who escaped enslavement and fought in the battle of Harper's Ferry, which jump-started the Civil War. The film highlights the Underground Railroad, the connections between free and enslaved Black people, and the White abolitionists and social activists who helped fight slavery. It also depicts the economic benefits of slavery to the South and the social norms of the region at that time. Expect to hear racial epithets, including the "N" word. Violence includes shoot-outs, a person being branded, a graphic battle scene, and many lives lost. A young boy is badly beaten for knowing how to read. This film is too intense for younger viewers, but it has clear themes of courage, teamwork, and compassion. And it doesn't shy away from honest depictions of how awful life on Southern plantations was for enslaved people, as well as the plight of both Black and White people who fought for freedom and change.

About: "The Emperor's New Clothes" is a short tale by Hans Christian Andersen about two weavers who promise an emperor a new suit of clothes that they say is invisible to those who are unfit for their positions, stupid, or incompetent *wikipedia*
This story is a translation of a classic tale by Hans Christian Andersen. An Emperor of a city is fond of new clothes. Two imposter weavers enter his city and tell him that they can create a suit for him that would be invisible to people who are unfit to hold their office, or excessively simple. The Emperor orders this suit to be made for him. The weavers pretend to weave this suit but in truth weave nothing at all, and present this fake "invisible" suit to everyone in the city as if it really exists. The Emperor along with all the people who look upon the suit are troubled by what they cannot see, and whether they are inadequate or not. This causes everyone in the city, including the Emperor, to lie and say they can see the suit although in reality they cannot. The Emperor leads a parade through the city in his new suit even though he is actually naked. A child breaks everyone's delusion by shouting out "the Emperor is not wearing anything at all!"
