The Last Samurai (2003)
In The Last Samurai, Tom Cruise portrays an ex-military with zero purpose in life. But his entire life changes when a clan takes him to help preserve the Samurai way of life. Not only is it historically inaccurate, but it’s offensive and racially insensitive. Despite the wrong facts, it won four Academy Award nominations. As one Rotten Tomatoes review puts it, it was a “white guy savior to the heathen natives.” At the very least, it’s not as offensive as some of the others on this list, and it seems to have disappeared from the spotlight (via Movie Web).
