China is not amused by being the villains of the Red Dawn remake

06.05.2010

The fictional China is the one attacking America in the upcoming remake of 1984's RED DAWN, but the real-life China apparently isn't keen on the negative portrayal. And in a way they have a point, considering the US owes them several generations worth of debt.

Chinese state-run newspapers are reportedly upset (I don't think "up in arms" would be an appropriate term) after seeing set dressings and script excerpts from the movie, which has China's People's Liberation Army teaming with Russian forces to attack America: "Despite the world's focus on U.S.-China relations in the strategic and economic dialogue and their increasing economic connections, China can still feel U.S. distrust and fear, especially among its people. Americans' suspicions about China are the best ground for the hawks to disseminate fear and doubt, which is the biggest concern with the movie RED DAWN."

China's media regulators tend to frown at any politics portrayed in movies (they edited Russia references from IRON MAN 2), so Chinese movie fans probably shouldn't expect to see RED DAWN on their screens at all, even if they wanted to.

As with the chest-thumpingly patriotic Cold War-era John Milius flick, the new version revolves around a group of teens who become insurgents battling a US invasion of military forces from Russia and China (altered from the original's Cuba, which seems to be the only major change aside from new faces). This time around it's Chris "Thor" Hemsworth, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Peck and Connor "Son of Tom" Cruise fending off the trespassers and shouting "WOLVERINES!".

Extra Tidbit: I would argue that any rational person knows the difference between movies and reality, but to be honest I'm not sure how many rational people are actually sitting in theaters today. What do you think -- "just a movie", or is China's argument valid?

I can understand where China is coming from. Of course they don't want these views placed on their country. They want a squeaky clean image, despite the fact that everyone the world over knows how the Chinese government is. I find it funny that China is afraid of the bad press, when everyone is pretty much on the same page: if the Chinese had the chance, they'd invade today. Our relation with them is not good, it's merely mutually beneficial, and once we no longer benfit China in any way, they

No country likes to be portrayed as vilain. Considering how many people call Michael Moore "anti-american" because he holds a point of view different than theirs, I'd be very surprised if a film portraying the U.S. as outright villains would ever be shown here.

Still, I'm too young to remember if relationship with China was really that bad in 1984. If it was almost as bad as Russ...

They make movies (including Russia) where USA portrayed as a villain all the time. Idiotic and formulaic movies.

China has never stopped being dictatorial. Reforms did not change the political basics. Without "cheap labor" (with poor quality) China would be a billion people without enough food state. I prefer to pay 3-4 times more for the better product made in less fucked up countries but...

Canadian communist feels sorry for the Chinese ones.
I wish they would use the Arabs and Persians with the Russians (of course!) instead. China still has a chance...
Or, should it be an attack from the Canadian communists instead?

As I look at it, with China's population as large as it is they would probably be the only country that could attempt to take over the US on our own soil.

But yeah, I wouldn't want my country being made the villain either.

Well...

Considering China's official news agency and government does a great job blurring propaganda and reality, it shouldn't surprise anyone that China seems incapable to discern what would be a movie and propaganda. Maybe the American filmakers for the new "Red Dawn" are more clever than originally thought... who am I kidding, the movie is probably going to tank on some levels.

i definitely think that this will get under the skin of every tea party member and fox news watcher who will use this as an example of why we should start stockpiling weapons and cutting ties with China. It is just a movie, but American movie audiences aren't very smart.

Never underestimate stupid rednecks in this country...

I had stupid family memebers who thought Red Dawn could really happen, and even stockpiled weapons no normal American civilian has any business owning. I think this movie will just feed paranoia and activate schizophrenia into propaganda soiled minds. Hopefully, this does not make rednecks remember to be intolerant and anti-asian again...

Everyone needs to remember this is a MOVIE. We should not sink to their level by making these rationalizations. No, artists in the United States should not feel bad about their fictional depiction of China. China should feel grateful that the U.S. is putting them on the level of "existential threat" like we did with the Soviet Union.

Let's say you lend your buddy $10,000. A few weeks later, the same buddy posts a YouTube video which (fictionally) portrays him kicking your ass. Wouldn't you be upset, and say: "Hey, asshole. I just loaned you a bunch of money. Why are you acting like you want to kick my ass?"

Starring… China as "The Loaner" and the U.S. as "The Buddy"

China needs to shut the hell up. They're so damn self conscious about everything! Oooo, we're losing face and respect from everyone since the dawn of time. Well, get over it! What foreign country does not get similar treatment in Hollywood movies. You know what else? Yes, Hollywood uses stereotypes for entertainment purposes regardless. But, if you watch some foreign movies, you see other countries stereotype americans as well. Especially Chinese movies!!! So, if it bothers them so

China is not mad at the U.S. because of our debt to them...they like having that leverage. The fact that it is so unthinkable for China to ever invade the United States is what makes the premise for the MOVIE so scary.

Anti-American

I could care less how many people are living in China or how much money we own them. Not everyone in China is in the military. If you know your USA history, the American people are very resourcable and we do love kicking ass. If we need to open ten ot twenty factories to make a shit load of weapons, so be it. China needs the USA more than we need them. The economy of the People's Republic of China is the third largest in the world, after the United States and Japan with a nominal GDP of US$4.91

China needs the USA more than we need them. The economy of the People's Republic of China is the third largest in the world, after the United States and Japan with a nominal GDP of US$4.91 trillion when measured in exchange-rate terms. It is the second largest in the world after that of the U.S. with a GDP of $8.77 trillion when measured on a purchasing power parity (PPP) basis. China is the fastest-growing major economy in the world, and has had the fastest growing major economy for the past 30 years with an average annual GDP growth rate of over 10%. The country's per capita income is at $3,677 and $6,567 in 2009. China is the second largest trading nation in the world and the largest exporter and second largest importer of goods. I did see the original Red Dawn with Patrick Swayze. The film's epilogue, suggests that the United States successfully repels the invasion some time later. China would win some battles, but definitely lose the war.

And USA debt to GDP is 90%. It doesn't matter if USA has the highest GDP. Do some research.

Factories? Do you know that more than half of jobs are being outsourced (mostly to China and India)? Especially in technology related (electrionics, chips, IT etc.) Number of outsourcing is also expected to increase exponentially. The only industry that does not involve outsourcing heavily is [link] industry.

Of course USA loves kicking ass. Like we did back in Vietnam war except we lost. I love

The USA with its massive spending budget, is the principal determinant of the current world trend, and its military expenditure now accounts for just under half of the world total, at 41.5% of the world total. The 15 countries with the highest spending account for over 81% of the total. The USA is responsible for 41.5 per cent of the world total, distantly followed by the China (5.8% of world share), France (4.5%), UK (4.5%), and Russia (4%):

While I believe China has a legitimate complaint about how their country is portrayed in movies, news media (both American and globally) has enough fact based examples of how the Chinese government treats their citizens and neighbors (Tibet anyone?) China does enough on their own to propagate their own negative media and how they are perceived by the rest of the world.

I say they can have a right to complain about their portrayal when they've made significant improvements within their own country.

As for the debt the US owes them, I find it highly ironic that they continually criticize our form of government, economy, and way of life, yet are so heavily invested and dependent upon it themselves. Can we say hypocrits? If we were to cut ALL ties with China and cease all trade, their entire economy would collapse, their people would starve, and they would cease to exist. Granted our economy would suffer as well, but I believe we could find alternative means to supplant our dependence on them, and without including toys and other products that intentionally poison our own population.

when I watched the original Red Dawn a few months back for the first time, and it wasn't a tongue in cheek, "breakfast club vs terrorists in a high school" type movie I was expecting.

Especially after seeing this promo photo:

Reality/Movie

The Chinese might be upset because the movie might become a reality if we don't pay them back there debt. Which I am sure has been our plan all along. I also wonder if they are pissed because we likely financed this movie with borrowed money from China.

Seriously, it just shows you how much China is up their own assess when they're getting upset over a freaking movie, especially a remake of Red Dawn. Plus, the fact that MGM is acting like a bunch of money hungry assholes, this movie will probably never come out anyway. They screwed over Bond and The Hobbit, you think they care about releasing Red Dawn anytime soon.

I'm interested in the remake

It's probably one I'm more interested in seeing than others. While North Korea would be more of suitable villain or Al Qaeda, we are so indebted to China, that seems likely that they'd be the new Russia.

I also like the cast. So looking forward to this.

Normally I wouldn't think much of assigning a real country as a fictional villain, and under certain circumstances, China is no different. But I would call this extremely ironic, and not in a good way. And while China can be SO TOUCHY about things, here, for once, I think they have a point. After all, this is about American patriotism, and we owe China BIG TIME. So we won't be going to war with them anytime soon.

Also the idea that they would be working with Russia is pretty far-flung, as

Also the idea that they would be working with Russia is pretty far-flung, as they have historically not been the closest of allies, even during the Cold War days.

Normally I wouldn't think much of assigning a real country as a fictional villain, and under certain circumstances, China is no different.

This is such a bone-headed remake, I'm not surprised the Chinese are insulted. And I bet that Milius thinks the whole scenario is a pile of shit.

This entire Red Dawn remake is stupid. Having China invade the US is retarded. Back when the original film was made it actually had some relevance to its time. Here it just makes no sense whatsoever. They might as well have Nazi's from the moon invade the US.

The Red Dawn remake can suck my cock.

Wow aside from the casting of Jeffrey Dean Morgan this remake sounds craptacular and China are babies.

My initial reaction was, hey, it's just a movie, similar to how Russia voiced issues with Indy 4, but all in all, if the roles were reserved, the movie would never get made, not in the states anyway, and we'd be crying foul too.
