    I played a Russian Spetsnaz in this film.  The lead Spetsnaz was played by a bodybuilder/gym owner in the Detroit area, not sure his name though.  During filming he was getting Hemsworth in shape for Thor.

    BTW: How was the scene with the Spetsnaz in it?

      Thanks for the input Page — very cool that you were in the movie!  As I
      said in my review, the actor who played the “main” Spetsnaz looked
      intimidating, but overall the Russians did very little in the movie which made me feel like a lot was left on the cutting room floor.  I would’ve liked to see more explaining exactly how involved the Russians were in the invasions.

           Akash,

          I don’t want to give all the clever bits away!  But yes, I think you’ll enjoy Hutcherson and his scene with the deer.

       Honzosan,

      It actually isn’t set for a release until November.  I bet the reason why it had early prescreenings was to combat some of the criticism the movie has faced over the last 3 years.

      I’d have to say: it worked.

    Thanks for the great review, Chris.  I was present when they filmed a scene with a school bus crashing into a tank. Just wondering whether this scene made it in to the film?

       David,

      You’re welcome!  Though it’s been a few weeks since I have seen the film, there is definitely an important scene with a school bus and it does involve a tank crash.  There’s a good chance that’s the one, I think!

      We’re with you on that one, Joe. As much as I liked the movie I could tell that there has to be a lot on the cutting room floor, and I’m not just talking about the digital fixes and the dubbing.

    Why were the bad guys changed from Chinese to North Koreans? Are we so afraid of offending the source of all our cheap Walmart goodies?

      Greg,
      While I’m sure that’s part of it, it also has to do with MGM not wanting to offend a billion potential ticket buyers. North Korea doesn’t legally import American films, so no sales lost there.

      I’m not saying that’s smart or stupid, but that’s the explanation.

    It was probably switched from Chinese to North Korean’s invading because the Chinese are the largest American debts holders, Japanese being second in line, meanings the Chinese have invested enough in the USA they just have to waite for us to collapse a little bit more before collecting, no invasion needed.
