Product placement! Positive characters! "Unpatriotic" storylines in a franchise notorious for its close involvement with the US Department of Defense!

Oh no...?

Yeah, infiltrated implies something more sinister than the Pentagon getting line item final edit of all these movies.

Perhaps "5 Hollywood Movies That Pandered to China For Cash After the Pentagon Made Sure It Keeps America Jingo-baiting For America."

I should also point out that "rogue CIA operative goes nuts; terror ensues" (which, on the surface, is the only damning claim here) is actually one of the CIA's *preferred* storylines! Look at all the films produced under the direction of Chase Brandon, the CIA's pointman for Hollywood: Enemy of the State, The Recruit, Mission Impossible III, the Bourne films, etc. All of these movies play on that same basic trope: the central government is all-powerful, the central government is all-seeing, sometimes somebody within the central government goes rogue and dooms the whole planet but don't worry! The central government will eventually pull its act together and save you all (assuming you tell your congressman to give the CIA more money). In fact, it's likely that it was the Americans, not the Chinese, who were pushing that particular storyline.

Honestly, the only thing China's guilty of here is playing catch-up.

"Honestly, the only thing China's guilty of here is playing catch-up."
And having a huge market. Hollywood isn't alone in pandering to China for their yuan, WWE recently recruited their first ever Chinese talent.

The CIA, Hollywood, and The Politburo are all caught up in a game of cat and mouse. Only the mouse is also a cat and the cat is really two cats. I call this the game of three cats or three cat.

In all seriousness the Chinese market isn't as profitable as the American market as studios only see twenty-five cents to the box office doller in China and is only the volume of the market that makes floating a movie over there a good idea.

Some of these videos are interesting, but the host is quite unlikable.

He looks like one of Mom's sons from Futurama.

# 10 - In the Jackie Chan classic, "Exploding Danger Policeman 4," sharp-eyed viewers will notice a shirtless Kevin James slowly eating sausage links in the background of every single scene. This was done for reasons of patriotism.

No mention of this one?
