- The evil Chinese company is not so evil--turns out that the bad guy is the American scientist working for the Chinese company. And the nasty Chinese boss of that company turns out to be a hero and saves our primary heroes at the end.
- The main battlefield is Tokyo, which is utterly destroyed. Sure to be popular in China.
- Of the many cadets, the only one that dies in the final combat sequence is the Indian.
Am I being overly cynical? I think not.
The movie itself as ok---not as much fun as the first one but entertaining.
