The film features western mercenaries who are fighting for the opposite side to the Chinese
A patriotic Chinese film with the tagline 'whoever offends China will be hunted down' has broken the country's box office records.
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.

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.
