    This is a story that’s plenty interesting enough without Fellers going all hang dog every 10 minutes over the woman he loved and lost and longs to find again... <a href="http://www.azcentral.com/thingstodo/movies/articles/20130304emperor-movie-review-goodykoontz.html" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>

    No Maturity Rating | Worth Your Time

    To its credit, the script (Vera Blasi and David Klass, based on a Shiro Okamoto book) plays up the uncertainty of the times, the pragmatism of MacArthur and the ambiguity of the Emperor’s guilt. But the love story plays like a clumsy distraction... <a href="http://rogersmovienation.com/2013/03/04/movie-review-emperor/" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>

    No Maturity Rating | Worth Your Time

    The earnest film keeps the viewers' interest as the events in Japan following Hirohito's surrender are inherently compelling. But their interruption by a pedestrian love story detracts from the story's momentum... <a href="http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/movies/2013/03/07/emperor-review/1921623/" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>

    Set amid the rubble of Tokyo, Emperor captures the moral paradox of that moment... <a href="http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20679743,00.html" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>

    "Emperor" is a solid and important look at a sometimes-forgotten chapter in the World War II saga... <a href="http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20130306/REVIEWS/130309988" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>
