The Defender" and "Eight Hundred" are both films born under such a trend, but with the tension between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait and the relationship between the United States and China, this trend has finally become "politically incorrect" in the eyes of the CCP authorities. "Eight Hundred", which was supposed to be released last year, was postponed for a year because it violated the "political correctness" set by Xi Jinping, and the scene where the flag of the Republic of China appeared was greatly cut.
Guan Hu was also forced to make anti-Japanese patriotic films that cater to the political needs of the CCP, just like Li Hanxiang and Ding Shanxi photo color correction services in those days. Even in the future, as the relationship between the United States and the CCP continues to deteriorate, a movie to resist the United States and Aid Korea will be filmed. From the point of view of the Republican Party, the attempt to rebuild the Republic of China by relying on the memory of the Chinese people's war against Japan ended in failure.
If under the rule of Mao Zedong, there were still many generations of the Anti-Japanese War from the 1950s to the 1980s, there were no Chinese people who rose up to resist the tyranny of the CCP. In today's era when Chinese young people have no memory of the Anti-Japanese War, they want to use the history of the Anti-Japanese War to attract Chinese compatriots It is even more difficult to identify with the Republic of China. However, for those nationalists on both sides of the Taiwan Strait who have continued the "fuzzy patriotism" spirit of Hong Kong and Taiwan artists, they finally don't have to worry about which China they should pledge their allegiance to in their performances, because the CCP has "fixed one", so they don't have to. Again and again.
