Re: Corporate Bad Guys

One thing to remember is the international box office has become more important than it had been in previous decades. Where they could make the Soviets or Chinese or any other nationality a villain and no one complained, they now need those markets and cannot afford to take the chance of alienating a potential market. So they rise above nations and suddenly the corporation is evil, for all the reasons given in the posts above mine.

It will be a rare film not based on real world events that will make the enemy another nation.
