    Default Death Rant

    So the film goes to great lengths to show Tom Cruise's character learning Japanese great. What I do not get is how come the dying words of the Samurai are in English?

    Talking

    If you have to ask that, you can also ask yourself why Algren and Katsumoto were still alive to deliver the death schpiel (and Algren survives... yeah, sure) after they both had taken something around 6-8 hits each, at close range, full in the chest and torso (complete with BIG splurts of blood!) from the gatlin' guns!

    Who knows... Maybe English is the language of near-death delirium.

    Great Films are all about suspending disbelief.

    I too was wondering about both those things... I just sat there thinking that they should know that is too impossible to be riddled like that and still be standing, much less talking. It was still an amazing movie though!
