    You have to admit, this film would be much much more realistic if it starred Tom Cruise.

    This movie must have taken place before the Chinese ran the Irish out.

    Yea the dumb bitch is right. Let's all boycott Hollywood movies (which the entire damn world watches) and instead watch Bollywood movies. Less white people=better right? Hope y'all like dancing in your movies.

    For some reason i think if the star was the asain guy from hangover nobody would watch it.

    matt damon is known for decent action movies not for being white.

    this film is an action movie

    Making Hermione black,

    Brave, courageous.

    Making Hannibal black,(history channel)

    Tolerant, inclusive.

    White in Chinese army,

    Racist, Nazis.


    Seems reasonable.

    The uproar is some what misplaced here. While there is whitewashing it is also pandering, Hollywood heard about the plan for the movie which was planned for a while, and decided that they wanted it fiance it to make bank in China, the caveat for financing was to film it in english and likely to have a name people would recognize to get non China market to give it a shot.

    There are 4 non Asian cast members taking a quick look at the cast, while they are prominent roles, the movie was filmed in China, with known Chinese director, producers, and most of the actors are asian.

    Oh that word that means "less white people", cool, let's go with that.

    How could I forget that award winning all black play about the founders, no white people, perfect score achieved!!!!

    While I don't watch movies based on a true story because I hate how they are never close to accurate, this is a fictitious movie I believe and if you don't like it, make your own movie and if it is good i'll watch it and give you money.

    Most of the outraged actors/actresses are just hoping for a paycheck and playing the victim.

    Waaaaaaah keep crying, SJWs. Though I don't enjoy your salty tears as much as others because yours contain MSG. Gives me a headache.

    Meh. Last Samurai is a great movie, as is Last of the Mohicans. I like Matt Damon, I'll watch it.

    What she or he said was absolutely true . No idea why you are so mad or saying that means they hate white people .

    White people are kind of a universial appeal . In advertising and media as well . Cant really blame them making 1 movie with a white character versus two movies one white and one asian to appeal to a universal market .

    Asians buy shit advertised by white people . Their own fault for being comsumerist sheep i guess .

    So what you're saying is you and all the others who liked the post don't ever bitch about the changing of the color or orientation of characters, and are upset at the bitching because it's not the way you handle things you don't approve of.

    Cause if you did sometimes complain, it'd be the same damn thing as this.
