The political correctness police forced the horrendous Red Dawn remake to adapt from a scare-'em-up about China to a much less realistic/frightening allegory about North Korea. The makers of Dragon Day would not make such a weak concession to The Man. Look at the Middle Kingdom symbol that appears when the Chinese take over; look at the rich reds on the "loyalty" bands Americans must wear after the collapse.
The distributors at Matter Media say that Dragon Day has "a plot that’s eerily close to what might be just around the corner." Perhaps it's best watched as part of a double feature with the year's other major debt/fiat money panic film, Silver Circle.
