It's totally bull-crap., 4 July 2011
Author: bold-oliver from China

basically it's just a pile-up of stars. no plot, no detailed relationships, no magnificent war scenes. With fake historical background of course.

and because of this s-h-i-t-t-y-a-s-s quality film, CCP postponed the air date of Transformer3 in PRC.

it earns money by forcing party members and students to watch this goddamn movie.

Trust me, no one's gonna watch this propaganda show.

If you have any of the alternatives, DON'T WATCH IT!

Geez I don't even know how come this movie is presented in the States.
