(Extended Essay) M.A.
The "Going Global" strategy of Chinese culture aims to allow foreign countries to understand Chinese culture better and convey the voice of peace through cultural forms such as movies. Wolf Warrior 2, a Chinese film, has a very high box office in China. It may be inconsistent with the way China hopes to portray itself on the global stage. This article uses the Chinese commercial film Wolf Warrior 2, released in 2017 and re-screened in 2020, as a research case to evaluate whether it reflects imperialist power. Through case analysis and text analysis of movie content, this article considers the mapping of Wolf Warrior 2 to imperialist power from the protagonist's image, lines, and movie images and reveals the causes of this phenomenon from the economic, political, and cultural aspects.
