Russians in the cinema

I despise how Russians and Ukrainians are portrayed by the American cinema and media. The “bad guys” in movies are either Russian or Asian, as if there is no imagination left for any other adversary. But if you are going to go there, the least you can do is hire Russian actors or do a voice-over with a Russian-speaking person to read the lines correctly, without a horrible accent that makes me cringe! And have a Russian-speaker proofread the “Russian” script as well –  a lot of the syntax is way off!

Here is a parody that shows what I am talking about. It has English subtitles, just turn the “CC” button on to English in the video screen.
