Apparently the film has been remade several times. Makes me want to find some of the earlier version.

Awful casting choice though. Couldn't they have gotten an Japanese actor for the lead? Is it so poorly done that they felt they needed a name?

The director is very new so maybe it will be interesting.

I think I would have put Hiroyuki Sanada as the lead, but I guess they think Keanu is a better draw.

Yeah, and I wish Tanto was actually being played by a Native American.

See I interpreted Ken Watanebe's character as the last samurai--he is the one that dies on the battlefield, not Cruise...

Since "samurai" is the same word for both singular and plural, the title could also be interpreted to mean that Tom Cruise's character lived among the last of the samurai.

Of course, there were some non-Japanese samurai, such as William Adams. Jules Brunet, the closest historical counterpart to Cruise's character, fought alongside the samurai but never was one himself.

Him plus a bunch of other samurai, no? Although Watanabe lasted for a few more minutes in the arms of Cruise, so he was the last samurai for a bit.

They do a 'Point Break Live' in San Francisco (and I think LA as well), where they cast a Keanu from the audience prior to every show. They figure that the acting was so bad that any idiot can do it.
