Suburban Senshi Entry #2242 - “[Retraction!] Skip Wolf Warrior 2”

So yesterday we reviewed Wolf Warrior 2, and kind of lightly touched on the fact there was propaganda in it
SpeedRcr_X
But obviously there's a lot of it, and this youtube reviewer focuses on the propaganda buried in it
SpeedRcr_X
He hits it on the head, though honestly this could be said about a lot of 80s American films too
FireFly_9
Well one thing I noticed was they were happy to have plenty of Africans in secondary roles, quite unlike how they convinced Disney to downplay Finn in The Rise of Skywalker.
SpeedRcr_X
Well it is a culture war, isn't it? It was the US vs Russia, now it's China vs the US.
SpeedRcr_X
Yesterday I said there wasn't anything particuarly Asian about the film and I sort of think that's the point. You want it to feel like a Watern Blockbuster so people eat it up and the hidden messages in it.
// J_Daito //
You recommended it as popcorn watching. You taking that back?
SpeedRcr_X
No, there's lots of great action. Just come for that and don't let the rest of the jingoistic bullshit suck you in.
FireFly_9
But to counter that point - there's *plenty* of action movies out there. Why even give one with this questionable pedigree any of your time?
FireFly_9
I mean we did because we didn't know what it was about when we chose it.
SpeedRcr_X
I guess
FireFly_9
It's not even like movies such as Harry Potter where the author became toxic - the work wasn't suffused with their attitudes (though continuing to support them is a problem) - these movies come with the poison baked in.
SpeedRcr_X
...When you put it like that, yeah... I'd take it back and say give Wolf Warrior 2 a pass.

March 6, 2002: Naru and Nephlite were at the animal kingdom, when Zoicite attacked using Kero Kero Girl, determined to put the Earth into Deep Freeze. As the Senshi ran and screamed in a panic, Nephlite joined them, posing and looking super bad but doing little else. Mamoru got to use a steel-tipped rose in battle. When all hope seemed lost, the Senshi got a break through a sudden turn towards and ethical lifestyle by the Villain. Sailor Moon used the Rainbow Moon Heartache attack to win.
Hit!Graph
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Uhh, no...
<Mdm_Maestro> No one got to see him.
<GERMATOID> WHA?
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> That's right, your punk [BLEEP] was knocked out at the time, right? Man, all we got to see was this big red blobby thing
<GERMATOID> ...
