Added DiffLines:

* WeaponizedCar: The epilogue shows the Wolverines got themselves some cool toys to continue the fight -- including a Ford Mustang with a roof-mounted minigun.

Added DiffLines:

* IdenticalLookingAsians: On a meta-level, this is why the filmmakers were able to go [[MoneyDearBoy "but we want the China money!"]] and completely re-do the movie in post-production, to change the Chinese bad guys, played by Chinese actors, to North Korean bad guys.

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: For the plot to even begin it relies on the MST3KMantra to make the invasion of any amount of continental American territory by North Korean forces militarily possible. Even with their EMP weaponry and Chinese and Russian assistance, the logistics to make such a thing possible are simply well beyond feasibility for them, even if they managed to completely elude any American detection of their preparations. In addtion to that, any foreign invasion of the United States would be met with a massive nuclear strike to destroy enemy command centers and war industry, as well as kill civilians to deprive the enemy of manpower.

Not even China nor Russia could effectively invade the United States, since they'd have to cross the ocean to do so, and even then, the American mainland is too heavily defended (and citizens themselves own weapons) that it would be a massive failure that could ruin China and/or Russia militarily, economically, and morally. In addtion to that, any foreign invasion of the United States would be met with a massive nuclear strike to destroy enemy command centers and war industry, as well as kill civilians to deprive the enemy of manpower.

* ShoutOut: The remake features several nods to the original, such as the scene where the Eckert brothers convince Robert to drink deer blood (although the remake puts a hilarious twist on that scene), and listening to Radio Free America where the announcer says "John has a long mustache" (itself a ShoutOut to ''Film/TheLongestDay'' and "the chair is against the wall." And the paratroopers descending from the sky.
