Great list. Although I would have put Collateral and Edge of Tomorrow further up.
Sidebar: seriously, have any of you even seen The Last Samurai? Tom Cruise doesn’t save anyone, he’s merely the vessel by which the western audience gets to travel to a world that would be strange to them. If anything, the samurai save Algren from his own grim past. And Ken Watanabe is the titular character, they just had to put Tommy on the posters because as great as Watanabe is, very few in the west know of him. Whitewashing is a real thing and its a serious problem, but I don’t think this is a good example.
