Chris Pratt will surely be devastated by the terrible review of his latest film, “The war of tomorrow, ”Received from anonymous“ audiences ”in China, who said they“ are bored with the hero role the United States has always played, ”according to Global Times, a media outlet affiliated with the Chinese state.
The Chinese public scoffed at “Tomorrow’s War” and said they are bored with the hero role America has always played. “America hasn’t even found all those people trapped in the collapsed building in Florida, how can you expect it to save the world?” https://t.co/8qtSz9tXql

Stating that the film “seems unable to satisfy Chinese audiences,” the newspaper goes on to say that:
“[M]users complained that the film was ‘illogical’ and ‘absurd’, saying they were bored with the bombastic American-style narration of American heroes saving the world. “
Then do the same thing that Americans do when they don’t like the vomit thrown by Hollywood. Do not go.
However, one question. How did Chinese audiences see the movie, which airs on Amazon Prime?
The heated discussion about “Tomorrow’s War” was spotted on Weibo on Friday, when a user posted a scene from the movie that looks a lot like Chinese students doing military training at school. It is unclear where the scene originally came from.
What is also unclear is how Weibo users commented on the scenes throughout the film and the story arcs if only “one scene” from “The Tomorrow War” was posted on the site, or how the user who posted the clip accessed that clip. Don’t worry, those Chinese audiences were really concerned about copyright infringement.
Other users concerned about the possible risk of copyright infringement asked if the film requested permission before using the scene. “I hope it is not the video material from a Chinese university that the directors of the film downloaded from the Internet,” joked one user.
The problem is, they were only concerned that American film producers infringed on the copyright of a Chinese university, not that a Chinese hacker had stolen Amazon property. (To be honest, Jeff Bezos probably would have given everyone in China free access to the movie in exchange for fucking in the US.)
Judging from the other topics supposedly referenced on Weibo, Chinese “netizens” are quite up to date on world affairs and even mimic progressive talking points. It is as if they are watching CNN and MSNBC.
“Take a look at what the United States does in the real world: send troops to the Middle East, withdraw from many international organizations, launch a trade war against China … not a savior but a troublemaker,” wrote one user.
Another user mentioned the collapsed building in Florida. “Even now, the United States has not found all the trapped people,” he wrote. “How can you save the whole world with such a poor rescue capacity?”
If these comments were actually made, we would have to forgive the people who made them, as they have no way of knowing that their government unleashed a pandemic in the world that has killed 4 million people (according to “official” statistics), who has ruined economies and lives and yet made bupkis to save, um, “the whole world.”
Chinese audiences “complained that they are tired of watching Americans save the world on the big screen,” the report says, because “the hero role America always plays in Hollywood movies is inconsistent with the irresponsible image. of the country in reality “.
Guess who’s not tired of watching Americans save the world on the big screen? American people. You know, the people who wrote the script, got funding, hired actors and a production crew and made the movie, and whose countrymen founded the industry.
Fortunately for the weary Chinese public, there is an easy solution. Chinese movie studios can create their own movies and oh wait. That’s how it is. Rather than developing its own artists and the film industry, which would require allowing those artists to think freely (and trust us, we know how painful those creative dudes can be), China relies on industries where they can
use your people as slave labor employ its citizens in a factory and use stolen intellectual property to make poor imitations of the innovative products that Americans have developed.
Since the Communist Party of China has just “celebrated” its centenary with a
big propaganda party last week’s party, it’s strange that your communications teams felt this piece needed to be removed. It is almost as if they are trying to distract themselves from growing internal problems, such as the wave of “suicides” among regional party officials, a renewed emphasis on investigating the Wuhan coronavirus lab leak theory, and defection from its chief counterintelligence minister, Dong Jingwei. . Or that they are sending a message to Hollywood that they better not send more of these movies that make America look good in China.
I can’t decide whether to laugh at this preschool-level piece of agitprop or feel sorry for it. But hey, progressives in America can cheer up – we’ve finally found a group that’s even worse at trolling.
You really have to read the entire train in one piece and laugh this Friday morning.
