Comments on Douban:
A very bizarre premise, our electronic products are so powerful.
It’s said that China’s powerful cyberattack left Uncle Sam unable to fight back, that all sorts of electronic products are Made in China, that all computer chips and online networks were disabled and controlled by China. The movie is inherently racially prejudiced, making China out to be an imaginary foe, the setting is sparse and plot is simple, a low-budget film.
The American federal government was unable to repay their debt, which led to retaliation from China. Without using a single soldier, using decades of “made in china” [embedded] electronics to launch a “cyber attack”. It’s a bit of a ridiculous plot, and there’s also a lot of plot holes. But for a low-budget movie, with no-name actors, you can still watch it. In the end, the family in the story flees to Mexico, which quite laughable.
I’m afraid to give a rating, this movie is so geili, talk about really overestimating our Party.
This reminds me of the nonsense talk from that American boy on that talk show, and that Canadian boy who terrifyingly said he wants to kill Chinese people. This movie [pop culture like this] can be considered the reasons behind these things! Bad rating!
Comments on Tiexue:
That Heavenly Kingdom officer’s uniform is very humorous.
Know that in Red Dawn there wasn’t a single Chinese or ethnic Chinese actor, they were all from other Asian countries.
Just from looking at the screenshot of the “Chinese soldier” wearing the People’s Armed Police uniform, it proves that Americans do not understand China’s military at all. Just like the People’s Liberation Army in Hong Kong movies, they often wear People’s Armed Police hats, and old uniforms, bearing no resemblance.
We will work hard to make this movie a reality.
What is the point of making a movie like this?
Louzhu SB! Inspiring?! It is precisely this endless vilification of China within Hollywood and American media that is misleading so many American people, causing many Americans to have a negative perception of China. Why do Americans think China does not have human rights? Americans who have been to China do not see it this way. Those who only learn about China through TV are the Americans brainwashed by media.
Is this a prediction by America?
I want to ask if our heavenly kingdom can make a similar film? Americans can curse their own president (like in Fahrenheit 911), can we do that in the heavenly kingdom?
A low-budget movie that will never be in theaters or on the big screen, how can it compare to our nation’s absurd anti-Japanese dramas?
