This is a awful movie
4 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie is one of most terrible movies I've ever seen. By fragmentary story line, distorted historical facts, you can not learn what happened in China in early 1900s, and also can not know why the Communist Party was founded in China at that time. But this is not the point. The point is faking how great the Communist Party is. And it's regarded as a gift to celebrate the 90 anniversary of CCP.

So it's not a drama, not a comedy, and of course not a documentary. Maybe you can see it as a show, full of Chinese stars. But it's not worth 2 hours time

The Communist Party of China has existed for over 90 years, and has dominated China more than 60 years which is a great tragedy for our Chinese people. We loathe it very much, and we will eventually destroy it!!!
