Cautious attempt to face history, with outside help
2 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

The literal translation of the title of this movie is: 800 Heroes.

The film is based on the true story of a regiment of nationalist troop fighting Japanese forces several times of their strength. Due to the political reasons, such historical topic is avoided in China, and even after the reform, the cautious approach needs outside help from Hong Kong, but such attempts still deserves a great salute.
