    The movie Red Dawn (1984) starring the young Patrick Swayze (RIP) and Charlie Sheen was perhaps one of the more memorable movies of the 80’s. The prospect of a Soviet invasion of Continental America had been a frightening scenario that played well into the collective psyche during the Cold War.

    Fast-forward to 2009, instead of fearing nuclear holocaust or imminent military invasion, we are fearing the fallout of the worse economic recession since the 1920’s, not to mention owing a sizable chunk of our debt to the Chinese. So it is probably fitting that the new remake of Red Dawn (2010) due to be released in 2010 would exploit the public hysteria surrounding the possibilities of a Chinese economic takeover. Ironically in the original Red Dawn, the Chinese and the Americans were allied (probably as a result of the height of the Sino-American rapprochement at the time the movie was made).

    Chinese netizens were generally both amused and bemused behind the idea of China invading America, with some expressing satisfaction toward such an endeavor, while others disliking the portrayal of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) on the set.

    This film is mainly targeted at the American teenagers, i am concerned once this film is released publicly, it will create a very negative impression about China among American teenagers. There are many anti-China plots in this film, considering children's strong sense of imitation, i am afraid how these children are going to treat Chinese and think about China after they watch this film. This film is purely to incite hatred towards China.

    Americans makes that kind of movies before breaking target countries. Beware China, Yankees will repeat the USSR history for you, I think this movie will be hit in India as well.

    Long long ago I saw a French movie - Les chinois à Paris (?PLA captured Paris) - Perhaps produced in 1978
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Very funny - stiff PLA officers speaking weird Chinese with obsolete 'revoluntionary' jargons, in contrast to hilarious Paris burghers ironically.

    French government runs away before PLA marches in.

    PLA sets up a puppet government, denounces Paris lifestyle as pervert and pushes forward 'radical changes' - censorship, confiscating private cars, and banning prostitution...

    But soon enough, PLA starts to indulge in 'corrupt' bourgeoisie life and leave their 'ideals' behind...

    here are how different nations react to the emergence of CHina:

    Russia:" All china-made are copies of Russia's...."

    S.Korea:" Confucius was a Korean...Oracle was invented by Korean..Great wall was built by Korean....gun-powder were invented by Koreans...printing were invented by Koreans.... Chinese civilization originated from Korea... all "good" in CHina are Korean-made...."

    Japan:" Tribute state system centered in CHina is reviving in orient land........what should Japan do with it?...."


    German: " Long live Tibet independence...long live Tibet independence...down China--the global biggest carbon emitte !"

    France:" Long live money...long live money....how much would the reward be, if France abandon 'long live tibet independence'?"

    UK:" Long live British drug-smugglers ......long live british drug smugglers.....they are innocent.....just set him free,damn you 'arrogant dragon'!"

    India:" China is gettting old....China has no human right..China has no democracy...CHinere are slaves......CHinese data are cooked.... CHina is a big bubble...all beauties in CHina is just a myth......anyhow China is doomed and India will have the future...."

    USA:" Red Dawn 2010 ..."

    This movie reminds me of an anti-Russian movie I saw as a teenager Red Dawn the original one where teenagers battle invading soviets. This is the same title but Russians have been replaced by Chinese.

    The threat of an attack from the Soviet Union during the Cold War was generally real one, and I am glad it never happened. The threat of a successful Chinese invasion takes an incredible stretch of the imagination, as the country is surrounded by enemies who would see this as an opportunity either to declare independence (Taiwan), or to get revenge for a previous conflict China aggressively participated in.

    Just for the record, the story has been changed into a North Korea invasion of USA. Apparently, money talks.

    I don't quite understand what is that supposed to mean, because the film has not been released yet according to my knowledge.
