** A bit Justified since they would've likely captured any equipment that wasn't outright destroyed by the US Military. This would also handle the supply issue since parts would be in warehouses just waiting to be used.

* ActorAllusion: Having ChrisHemsworth go to a [[Film/TheCabinInTheWoods a cabin in the woods]] is rather [[HilariousInHindsight amusing]].

* TheShelfOfMovieLanguishment: Actually managed to make it all the way through the production phase, only to get sunk by MGM's financial insolvency. It was also delayed because the premise of China attacking America scared off all other major distributors, so MGM had to change the villain to North Korea in order to make it more attractive to film companies, and even then it took several months before it finally found a distributor willing to take a chance on the film. It probably helped that ChrisHemsworth and Josh Hutcherson had recently found fame for ''{{Film/Thor}}'' and ''Film/TheHungerGames'', respectively.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Early drafts of the script had the protagonists fighting [[PostNineElevenTerrorismMovie Middle Eastern terrorists]]. This was likely changed because, unless said terrorists were the [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals Global Liberation Army]], it'd be WAY too unrealistic.

* RealitySubtext: The current political climate necessitated the change of the antagonists in the remake from China to North Korea. The notion of using Chinese in the first place for the remake was due to the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Noting that China was once an ally of the U.S. also fits the affiliation of China toward the end of the ColdWar.

Added DiffLines:

* BoxOfficeBomb: Changing the villain army from China to North Korea in order to appease the Chinese government didn't really matter too much in the end, since the film did so poorly in the U.S. that it wasn't even released in China (or many other countries for that matter).
