The Last Samurai

Another AA movie in my list. AA means Arrogant American movie, the last one in this category I saw before this was Hidalgo. Although in the Last Samurai, Tom Cruise, the disillusioned Confederate soldier who takes up a contract of training soldiers for the Japanese emperor is all praise for the Samurais and their contributions and joins ranks with them against the Americans and the Japanese soldiers trained by the Americans, I found the movie rather drab. Add to it, the ending was typical Hollywoodsy, with the otherwise silent emperor coming to his senses and shifting to Cruise's side.
