Chinese Cyber Attack! The Movie

Dragon Day attempts to the be thinking man's Red Dawn.

Hey moviegoers! Do you like your movies with a healthy dose of anti-Chinese fearmongering? Bummed that Red Dawn chickened out and turned the movie's Chinese villains into North Korean invaders? Look no further than the indie cyber thriller Dragon Day, where chaos erupts when China comes to collect.

The plot: Duke, an out-of-work NSA engineer, finds his family stuck in a small mountain town the day a devastating cyber-attack destroys the U.S. as we know it. The culprit: China, of course! And get this: every microchip "Made in China" has been infected with a virus that rapidly shuts down all modern technology.

Here's the trailer:

The great Chinese hack attack! Damn, all of that "Made in China" gear comes back to bite us in the ass. It looks like it's trying to be the thinking man's Red Dawn, but I just can't get over how lousy it looks. No thanks.
