  • 5 stars Excellent movie! The movie had a great cast and the story was well put together offering a heart wrenching and multifaceted glimpse into the suffering and pain the Japanese inflicted upon the Chinese during that war. It broke my heart and at the same time illustrated a touching heroicism. Zhang Yimou is an awesome director.
  • 5 stars my favourite bale movie period. and that's saying a lot because i loved the dark knight trilogy.
  • 5 stars excellent movie, great plot, outstanding action and acting.
  • 5 stars 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.
  • 5 stars we won't see a better movie from bale this year. 5/5
  • 5 stars amazing movie! must see.
  • 4 stars 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.
  • 5 stars a great movie... highly recommended for those love war & history !!
  • 5 stars 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!
  • 1 stars 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.
