Wolf Warrior2: Fight for those who dare to offend our country
 

 


a Chinese war action film called Wolf Warriors 2 was released on 27 July, 2017,
and 
become the highest-grossing film ever at the Chinese box office. 

 

 

"Anyone who offends China will be killed no matter how far the target is."

 

That is the tagline for Wolf Warriors 2, the Chinese box office hit that is equal parts testosterone-fuelled machismo - think blazing guns, explosions, and tanks - and chest-thumping Chinese patriotism.

It sees a soldier venturing into an African warzone and saving hundreds of lives from Western baddies. It's basically the plot of your typical Hollywood action movie, but this time it's a Chinese man upholding justice and keeping the world safe.

Following in the footsteps of Jackie Chan and Jet Li, martial arts expert Wu Jing is among a new generation of Chinese action stars turned directors.

His first Wolf Warrior film came out in 2014, but it didn't make much of an impact. Mainstream movies, especially those promoting patriotism, usually don't do very well in China.

Wolf Warrior 2, however, has become a phenomenon.

 

 

 

The movie, which is entirely privately funded, has also been lauded for its attention to detail and reportedly features close replicas of many of the latest weapons and artillery used by the Chinese army.

 

 

 

But timing has also contributed to its success, with the Chinese nation in the throes of a new wave of patriotism.

The film premiered just ahead of the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese army, a hugely symbolic event for the country.

Over the weekend, the People's Liberation Army (PLA) held a grand military parade which presented the latest in China's arsenal of weapons.

In a stern speech, which in parts was not dissimilar to lines from the film, President Xi Jinping vowed to fight anyone who tried to split China.

 

 

The Chinese government's mouthpiece People's Daily hailed Wolf Warrior 2 as a "superhero movie of Chinese style" that showed "fearless heroism and responsibility" and evoked passion for patriotism.

But not all in China are convinced by the message.

"Wu Jing took advantage of mainstream politics," one commenter wrote on Douban, a popular Chinese website where people can rate and comment on movies. "It's such a publicity stunt."

Another Douban user wrote: "We used to laugh at personal heroism, but binding all-powerful superheroes with patriotism is even worse."

In a meanwhile, the Chinese army held a grand military parade at a trainingbase in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region on 30th, July morning to mark the 90thanniversary of its establishment.

 

 

Chinese President Xi Jinping, who is also general secretaryof the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, inspected the troops and delivered a keynote speech. Many Chinese who watched the live television broadcast of the parade,said they felt a deep sense of pride watching it.
