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.

A surprisingly good movie made by Mainland China - Bravo!
18 June 2009 | by (North York, Canada) – See all my reviews

Prior to watching this movie I have read a few decent reviews about it. After watching it, I must admit, it exceeded my expectations. Very realistic battle scenes, good character development, a bit weak on the romance side of things, but hey, this isn't a chick flick.

My Chinese Mandarin skills are weak, so I appreciate the good quality English subtitles provided.

Overall, I think China has taken a good step in creating this movie so that it does not appear like a "state-run, propaganda" film...rather a real film with deep meaning and quality entertainment value.

This film makes me ponder the question, will there be more movies like this to come from China? I certainly hope so!
