Wolf Warriors 2 has raked in more than 3.4 billion yuan (￡388 million) since its release two weeks ago.
The film tells the story of Chinese special forces rescuing an unnamed African war zone to rescue locals from rebels and western mercenaries.
The movie's tagline is 'whoever offends China will be hunted down no matter how far away they are.'
The whole story revolves around China's special forces and their rescue of an African nation in the middle of a civil war.

It is directed by Wu Jing a popular martial arts expert who also plays the leading role Leng Feng who comes out of retirement to liberate people caught up in the middle of a civil war.
The film features plenty of special effects and explosions somewhat reminiscent of a Hollywood war blockbuster.
However the patriotic tone appears to have been successful beating the box office record. It is expected to rake in more as movie goers continue to head to the cinema.

It was previously held by 'The Mermaid' a China and Hong Kong fantasy comedy released last year. It grossed 3.39 billion yuan (￡387 million).
The film comes soon after China opened a naval base in Djibouti it's first overseas naval base.
Chinese state media has praised the film with the Global Times claiming that the film has made more people want to join the army.
In an editorial it claimed that the BBC had reviewed the film through western bias. It said that the BBC had intentionally 'thrown mud' at China.
The movie is packed with special effects making it look like a Hollywood war movie

By copying unrealistic war movies that rely upon the enemy not knowing how to shoot straight? This is domestic propaganda to sell a large military budget to their citizens.

Fair play to them Western media has used China and communists as the bad guy for generations.

You could chalk that up to the fact that communism/socialism in the last century killed more than 100000000 people.

Not any different than an American action movie. Looks like it might actually be a good action flick.
Richard Deep England United Kingdom 20 hours ago
Most American movies these days have the US government as the bad guys and a noble liberal e.g. journalist as the force for good. They are just as much propaganda as this Chinese flick - and probably funded by the same people.

What's good for the goose. If China is producing good films it can only be a good thing & even if it produces bad ones at least they are getting some practice good luck to them. They're unlikely always to share the same outlook on things we do & that in itself is likely to lead to some very interesting films.

I'll definitely watch this one as sadly it is not too far from the truth. This is pretty close to reality in Africa except we don't hear about it on western media.

True. Zimbabweans refer to them to as Banana Men: yellow on the outside white on the inside. Mugabe has been propped up by Chinese 'loans' for years.
