    Well to start off, their language are very different from ours, english is latin based, as quite a few other languages, asian languages are not, the sentence structure and pronounciation are pretty different as opposed to let's say italian or french.

    To compare to japanese for example, they don't pronounce some letters the same way we do in english, (Their U is pronounced like we do in french rather than english) the noun, verb and adjectives are also defined by another word that serves as a suffix to tell what the word was, but the sentence can pretty much be written in any order.

    considering Keanu Reeves hasn't been the best of actors since surfer dude lingo went out of style, i'm not surprised the movie was terribad.

    It's an American movie set in (I haven't seen it so correct me if I'm wrong) Japan. They're not gonna have everyone speaking Japanese in an American movie, so they just throw in "Asian" accents to make it more believable. It's the same reason everyone has a British-sounding accent in American movies set in Europe or Middle Earth or something.

    I guess the fact that some on the japanese actors aren't overly fluent in english, seems like another dumbass cry for attention with this thread. Is Delmorte the new duby?

    i couldn't really finish the movie after about 10 minutes. i dont know how good a movie it is, i just didnt feel like watching movies overall. And this movie just felt too much like a cheap attempt to make it sound asiany like The Last Samurai or that Shogun movie - both really disgusting patheitc and revolting movies. Am I bad to feel this way?
    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

    Just saw this thread... You do realize that this is how Japanese people actually speak English, right?

    Was going to say the same, it's like none of you have seen Jackie Chan out-takes.
