    As PC as Hollywood is, you'd think they'd be past casting white people in non-white rolls.

    i thought it was pretty gay myself. so im hoping at least they have him doing samurai style fights. not just running into a battlefield and hacking away.

    :ugh: He plays an American in the movie and its not called The Last Samurai because he is the last Samurai, its about the Last of the Samurai.

    "Set in Japan during the 1870s, The Last Samurai tells the story of Capt. Nathan Algren (Tom Cruise), an American military officer hired by the Emperor of Japan to train the country's first army in the art of modern warfare. As the government attempts to eradicate the ancient Samurai warrior class in preparation for more Westernized and trade-friendly policies, Algren finds himself unexpectedly affected by his encounters with the Samurai, which places him at the center of a struggle between two eras and two worlds, with only his own sense of honor to guide him"

    I will pass. I have trouble taking Cruise serious as an actor. The only movie I thought he was great in was "Magnolia".
