Storyline

War feasts upon death. Its greedy appetite carries away many a life on the battlefield, and soldiers must be ready to die at any time. Yet all these sacrifices can be given meaning and reason with honor. A weathered witness of war's insatiable appetite, Guzidi, Captain of the Ninth Company, will struggle his entire life to return honor to his forty six men and their self-sacrifice. The year 1948 witnessed the launching of the Huaihai Campaign during the Chinese Civil War. In one of Chinese history's deadliest battles, thousands from the People's Liberation Army (PLA) and the Nationalist Army (KMT) fell in the battle that took place between Xuzhou and Bengdu. It was amid this bloody fight that Captain Guzidi led the Ninth Company infantry unit on a sniper mission. His orders were to fight the KMT Army until the retreat assembly call was sounded. Yet, after many long hours of painstaking resistance, Gu watched powerless as the ammunition ran out and the scant ranks of the Ninth Company ... Written by FB

Not the same war movie we are used to...
8 March 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

indeed,i agree this is a very powerful movie: chapeau to mr feng Xiaogang for this tour de force ! recent years war movies the like of "flags of our fathers", "saving private ryan","iwo jima" are certainly (and always will be) violent but with lesser gratuitous effects and they dealt very justly with the myriads of war consequences, first on the soldiers and the rest of us. i salute the initiative of mr feng. here, i am not comparing his 'the assembly' to the previous film titles, for no war is alike and comparable. but his courage in depicting a period of profound political disturbance in his own country make us all stop and ponder, and this is on a personal note since i am vietnamese and having lived through much of my own country's war, what are the tragedies of fratricide between brothers of same origins, beliefs and values. mr feng showed us the strong sides and the various weak sides of soldier in this part of the hemisphere. by that process, he erased those past clichés of Asian cultures in the practice of that belligerent art. is or are there any morality stemming out of this movie ? mr feng will be more apt to answer than myself. finally, i wish someone in my own country could have courage and integrity ( and resources !) to make this kind of movie for future generations to learn from our past. mr feng has carved himself an indelebile mark in Chinese filmaking. bravos...
