my favourite bale movie period. and that's saying a lot because i loved the dark knight trilogy.
excellent movie, great plot, outstanding action and acting.
well done movie but so painful to see such anguish the japanese caused. war is a terrible thing. soldiers are meant to die in wars but to see civilians devastated is so very sad.
we won't see a better movie from bale this year. 5/5
as a child my parents used to tell us about the monstrosities committed by the japanese: chinese would line up, kneel in front of a pit, get beheaded and the bodies would be kicked into the pit; a neighbor had his ear chopped off; women were raped; people were forced to leave their babies on the streets because others feared if they cried, they would be found in their hiding places and killed. so many other stories that have not been told. even though the japanese have not been portrayed to the fullest extent the horrific jackals they are, i am happy bale decided to be in this movie. thank you.
a great movie... highly recommended for those love war & history !!
great movie indeed ! too bad, north americans
aren't keen on watching foreign films ! these
chinese movies always have a lesson of the past
for the present+future. this movie will win many awards in the far east, 2013 ! we and friends saw this movie 2x; each time we wept!
boring movie with god-awful acting. by far bales' worst acting ever. this movie could have been great, but the acting and terrible shaky-cam cinematography kills it. no wonder it's playing in so few theaters. do yourself a favor and skip this.
an excellent movie that touches your heart ! it makes you feel the wrath of war & the cold-blooded japanese soldiers, during these 8 yrs of invasion & occupation on china (1937-1945). many wept while watching this film; we did, too !
