Gatling guns... Now that would have made a difference in the battle scene and ending of "The Last Samurai," wouldn't it? In the movie, the emperor's imperial forces had the Gatling guns and the samurai had arrows, spears and swords. But it did give Ken Watanabe a fabulously over-the-top death scene.
Saigo (was it "Katsumoto" in the movie?) had run out of ammo (in history).
