Long live the Republic of China! Down with the communist party of china!
This film could be so much more emotional and touching if the Chinese communist party is not still ruling the mainland China. The ccp's censors ruined the film. After watching this film, the audiences (especially the young mainland students) will hardly be motivated to pursue for the Three Principles of the People for a better China.
For one thing, this is about the founding of Republic of China, (the first democratic republic in the entire Asia), however, the name of "Republic of China" or the Three Principles of the People were hardly ever mentioned, they were probably mentioned for less than ten times throughout the film.
In one scene, the subtitle in Chinese and English was "Republic of China", but the dialogue was talking about "revolution". So did the censor ask the filmmakers to change the name of ROC to revolution? No one will know until after the ccp is to be destroyed for good in the future.
Jackie chan's voice was dubbed by someone else. That was a good choice, because it made his character more believable. Even though his face looks familiar, but the character he portrayed looked brand new. He wasn't a bad actor in this film even though it is not his regular comedy, action film role.
overall, i enjoyed watching it. It could be a much bigger epic film if they didn't have to worry about the CCP's censors. Just like the rest of the mainland Chinese films, they can't make great films, because everything they make must first be approved by the evil CCP censors! Until the day when CCP is overthrown by its people, mainland Chinese filmmakers can never make a great touching film at all. They have all the money, human power, they just don't have the creation freedom.
