worst movie ever in human history, 17 June 2011
Author: arorua_bai from New Zealand

Background: what I am talking about here is not the movie story background, as this movie has no story at all anyway. I am talking about the background behind showing this movie in Chinese cinema. All schools and companies are forcing their students and employees to watch this awful movie, no matter u like it or not, thats the direct order from "the party". so end up 90% of the audiences fell asleep in cinema which including me of course. what ridiculous is "the party" is not allowing "transformer 3" on show unless this movie's box office reach $xxxxx. w-t-f! just like the movie said, is that the party that loved by their people? I don't think so.

story: no storyline at all. I understand its all about history, but is that "history" real?? Humm...

actors: awful, worst chairman Mao ever.

overall:really awful, I would rate minus10 if there is an option.
