    Wow, Tom Cruise was really not right for that role.

    The trailer is affective, but Cruise’s American accent seemed distracting in a sea of British.

    The movie looks great. I don’t like Cruise but I don’t think he’s going to bring it down

    A lot of Hollywood films let the actors’ use their native accents instead of the accent of the country the movie is set in. A good example would be Enemy of the Gates. I also don’t think Errol Flynn used a real English accent in the original Robin Hood film. I know there are bunch of other examples but my mind is suffering from a memory lapse right now.

    i think it looks good but i don’t get why people are saying its good that no one is trying to do accents… why? i want authenticity, especially on a project like this. if these actors are so talented (imo they are) then why can’t thy pull off the accent. i can do an ok german

    I also don’t think people should let their unfounded bias against Tom Cruise which came as a result of a bandwagon-bashing induced by the media affect their professional opinions towards his films. There have been too many cases of that recently, the masses wrongly turning against great celebrities they had loved and respected for years because of false personas, false accusations, gossip and outrageous spin from the cruel media who continues to exploit them. While many of the true unrespectable and scandalous celebrities
    are left unscathed and continue to receive adoration because the public clearly operates on what the media wants them to believe. It is a tragedy and shame most of the public can’t see through spin. So his wacky and over the top PR blitz around Katie Holmes backfired, he just wanted Tomkat to be the new golden couple .
    He took the wrong approach in defending and discussing scientology. The usually cool and suave Cruise lost a little control and engaged in some zany behavior. I was never a big fan of his
    and was kind of glad he got dethroned as King of Hollywood but I don’t think he deserves all of this contempt and scorn over such petty reasons
    and because people have such extraordinary misperceptions about his personal life. He overcame many pseudo-scandals in his very sucessful career but it was couch-jumping and
    some wackiness that ended up destroying his popularity and image. I was astonished how millions of his fans coldly turned on him because they gave into manipulation, peer pressure, and the hysteria the media created because people just realized that Cruise wasn’t
    perfect. He is one the best movies stars we have ever had and people just forget his outstanding contribution to the world cinema. He does not deserve to hated this way. I also think he is a talented actor and his career should not have been ruined . The response to his actions were greatly disproportionate to what it deserved.

    Some corrections- …to the world OF cinema. He
    does not deserve to BE hated this way.

    I never said it was good that they were not using German accents, just that it was common. Sometimes studios make that decision because they know how harsh and critical people can be when it comes to accents. If the accent is not pitch perfect or pleasing to the ear, the audience
    or media sometimes blows it off as a weak performance, especially with American actors. It is also harder for some actors to pull off certain accents, they don’t want the accent issue to affect their acting ability or distract them from the process. I personally think a German accent is hard to pull off eloquently. Also, American audiences can be very ethnocentric and they don’t like the sound of certain accents they are not used to or they have trouble understanding dialogue with certain accents. Though I do agree with Casey a little bit, movies should try to be authenic as they can.
