Look out! Here come the Americans!

I am looking for foreign (non-American) films wherein the antagonists are a nefarious bunch of Americans, doing stereotypically bad American things.

Watching the new Indiana Jones film and reading about the Russian communist party uproar over the film's Soviet evil-doers has me curious about foreign films with American bad guys (like the constant evildoing Nazis and Soviets we see in so many comic books/spy novels/action/adventure flicks).
Sadly, I fear a large portion of American moviegoers buy into this traditional Nazi/Communist schtick, so I'd be very interested in seeing some corresponding examples from "the other side". It would be particularly interesting to me if (a substantial portion of) the home market audience of these films buys into the stereotyped portrayals in the film.
