    You need to be able to speak their language, in both senses. They don`t know who he is. All they know is there`s a random white guy walking up to the place they are guarding. Bale should have arranged the visit with the appropriate authorities beforehand if he didn`t want any trouble. Need to respect Chinese law. Not all the time, but when you`re an ignorant foreigner, most definitely.

    "Need to respect Chinese law. Not all the time, but when you`re an ignorant foreigner, most definitely. "

    Except in this case as with most chinese law is just some government bully party watching a BLIND ACTIVIST and making sure that the blind man doesnt say the word freedom, or reform.

    Looks Like He`s A Real Person and I seriously doubt it was "staged". China doesn`t want to look like the bad guy, even if they ARE.

    @red_raven: translators, duh?

    Good for Mr. Bale for putting his own butt on the line! Trying to visit a "free man" is a dangerous thing in China.

    I know someone who`s been doing humanitarian aid in western China for over 15 years and he has to put up with this kind of stuff all the time. Even extremes like midnight raids by the police are a fairly common occurrence.

    In the security guards defense, he was trying to concentrate on something and Bale was moving around in the background, probably adjusting lights or something.

    So now we send our actors to countries to provoke foreign governments? Are they less expensive than drones?

    He`s lucky he was just run out of town. They could have easily detained him and he would get to really suffer. He had to know they wouldn`t just let him in since the house is on lockdown. I have some respect for the effort, but it was futile.

    You know I did not know that Christian Bale was English... He does a very good American accent, I had no idea. Even in his rant, what was that last year?, I didn`t notice the accent.

    Is the dejavu the term? because this was very similar to his Batman Begins scene where he`s arrested by chinese authorities... maybe from this episode Mr. Bale will find a new life career...

    Just goes to show, as a man he cannot even visit Chinese citizen Chen but as BATMAN he can slip in and actually kidnap Chinese criminal Lau...and that is why the world needs Batman.

    @carlsagan: I think you`re right. It seems a bit too coincidental that he just finished a film there too, any publicity is good publicity.

    "if this happened to anyone not a `celebrity` no one would give a sh*t"

    That`s the whole point, to raise awareness.
