The Japanese used no Airborne troops in China during World War II. They only had three battalions of para-marines that were used in Indochina (Southeast Asia, Viet Nam, Cambodia, etc.) on a very limited basis as airborne troops; but did participate in several landings. See more »
China Sky is interesting as it shows a side of WWII that is seldom seen, the war in China. Few realize the enormity of what the Japanese did to China and it is seldom seen on television or in the movies. This gives at least a glimpse into that world.
The story was written by Pearl S. Buck. It has some of the worst dialog I've seen in a movie in many years. The story is predictable, and there is not one thing in the plot that comes as a surprise. The acting is a bit better than the dialog, but that really isn't saying much.
This movie is worth watching if for nothing else but the subject matter, but if one is expecting to be entertained please watch something else.
