Critic Reviews for Shogun
While its depiction of Japanese history is oftentimes dodgy, it nonetheless remains an affecting portrait of Japanese life for American audiences at a time when such a thing just wasn't that common.
Everything is predictable, nothing is interesting. [Full Review in Spanish]
This excellent nine-hour program (13 hours when first shown on TV) holds up as one of the best of the miniseries, a prolific genre at the time.
This the kind of mini-series that the networks don't even ATTEMPT anymore!
Audience Reviews for Shogun
One of the great mini-series from the 1980's. Avoid the choppy theatrical cut.
