It's because of the hatred between China and Japan ever since World War 2. But let's be honest - can most people really tell Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc. apart from one another? Not to be racist, but no, most people can't -- and that's why they get away with having them play interchangeable nationalities.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Actually, I think Hollywood assumes "most people can't" -- and they then reflect their own insensitivities in their projects, offending minorities in film after film...
The Four Horsemen of the Moviepocalypse: uncalled for sequels/remakes/reboots, 3-D surcharges, untalented "celebrities", and anything with Michael Bay's name attached to it.
