China May Ban Mission Impossible 3

Oh that wacky Chinese government is at it again. Those crazy guys.

Seems like they’re looking at banning Mission Impossible 3 from their country, and the reason is just amazing. The good folks at the Times give us this:

China may ban Mission: Impossible III, the latest Tom Cruise action film, because it suggests that Shanghai police may not be the world’s finest thief-catchers.

The Beijing Times said: “In the Shanghai scenes all the roofs and alleys have raggedy clothes hanging from bamboo sticks everywhere.” Many viewers had found the scenes shot in Shanghai and the village of Xitang “inappropriate”, given that both locations were used as sites for the storage of chemical weapons by the film villains.

One commentator said: “Chinese viewers will have trouble accepting this plot of foreign criminal elements fighting publicly in Shanghai.” Word has it that Chinese police registered outrage when it was noticed at a private screening that crimes could take place in China without being detected by the nation’s finest.

So they may ban the film because it doesn’t show their police force as PERFECT and superhuman? Oh man that’s just lame.

The producers of MI:3 should send the Chinese government footage of how we portray our own police forces here in North America. Their police will look like GODS compare to how we portray ours. (Special thanks to GooMack14 for the heads up)
