Movie Review: 'Emperor'

Oklahoman Published: March 8, 2013

Jones does a sturdy job of portraying MacArthur as, well, Tommy Lee Jones in khakis, which is entertaining but not much of a stretch. Fox is more problematic. At 46, the “Lost” star is only five years younger than Fellers was at the time of the occupation, but he lacks the military bearing of a senior officer, coming off more like a recent West Point grad. Most of all, “Emperor” feels informed by 21st century ideals rather than the realities of the mid-1940s occupation. It is nice and romantic when a more forthright history is needed.
