1911 is billed as Jackie Chan's Centential movie or in other words his 100th on screen movie credit which is quite an accomplishment for anyone.
The story is of an epic nature in both scale and story a really well made movie with political intrigue based on historical characters. The story involved the Xinhai Revolution to take over the Qing Chinese Dynasty.
While Jackie Chan might be the top billed actor in the movie in reality he's probably only the 2nd or 3rd lead role with the character of Yat Sen the leader of the Revolution being the main character and Jackie's character playing his most trusted General.
