Expansive historical drama not for everyone
14 December 2013 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

A sequel to the Shaw Bros. "The Empress Dowager", "The Last Tempus" tells the story of the Empress Dowager Cixi, who unofficially ruled the Qing dynasty in the last half of the 19th century. Emperor Kuang Hsu (Guangxu) officially ruled, and tried to enact reforms of a more Westernized government, but was opposed by the influential Cixi.

This film is a historical drama that claimed to use over 1,000 actors and extras, as well as expansive sets and costumes which are impressive.

However, I personally did not enjoy it. I picked up this one expecting a Shaw Bros kung fu film, and instead got political drama.. just wasn't into it. Maybe others interested in the political history of that era would be.
