They had such blatant Chinese product placement in the half of the movie that occurred in the USA, I was laughing my arse off.

And then they moved to China, where Michael Bay and the scriptwriters were falling all over themselves with praise for the Chinese government... (after spending half a movie telling us the US Gubmint is bad bidnes)... at that point, it all got a bit too much for me.


Also, in Tomorrowland, they show an Asian-market only Chevy Trailblazer in a US parking lot for about half-a-second as they pan across the lot. Which I thought was kind of... subliminal.
