The end of The Last Samurai has the weak, almost effeminate Emperor pretty much asking for Tom Cruise to teach him what it means to be a samurai. If they had removed the last 5 minutes of that movie and ended it on the battlefield, it would get way less flack for being part of the white savior complex. I really enjoyed the movie up until that last scene. Hell, they should have had him die because it probably would’ve made for a better (and more accurate) ending.
