What's even worse about Red Dawn
is that in the original stages of production (it wrapped in 2009, but was sat on by the studio for a couple of years) it featured the far-more credible threat of the Chinese instead of North Korea. But then some Hollywood bright spark realised that a film about a war between America and China where China gets its ass kicked might not go down well in the very lucrative market of China (which has become much more lucrative since 2009, when this was much less of a concern). But hey, no one in North Korea goes to the cinema, hooray, we'll just change a few flags, redub a few lines and call them Koreans instead. A dumb, racist movie gets even dumber and more racist but at least Hollywood keeps the Chinese dollar.
