In a commentary, Senior Visiting Fellow at RSIS, Raffaello Pantucci wrote about the Chinese film Wolf Warrior 2 and how it has accomplished a special feat of entering the lexicon. Wolf Warrior has become the byword for a mood in Beijing that sees little reason to stand down before adversaries. The film’s primary audience is domestic, showing the Chinese public they are living in a strong country built by the CCP. But this sort of narrative is also dominant globally, where political leaders are stoking nationalist and nativist fires at home to bolster themselves, he said.
Raffaello Pantucci is a Senior Visiting Fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies.
