Revealing mistakes: All of the rifles were bolt action rifles, but several times the sound of continuous fire from a single weapon is heard. Also because a bolt action rifle has no buffer spring to absorb the recoil like a semi-automatic weapon has, no one showed any effects of recoil from firing their rifles.See more »

A movie to never be forgotten. Instant Classic of Cinema., 27 September 2011
Author: Skillez Alprazola from Hong Kong

Excellence is too easy a term to describe the brilliant film Mr. Chan has put together. As a life long fan I have followed his progression (and regression in the states aside from a few good films such as the Shanghai Noon and Knights movies, along with Karate Kid, Around the World in 80 days gets a big nod for having Sammo Hung along with Andy Lau)

Donnie Yen was in a movie along with an actor that is tied with Jackie Chan as my favorite... Tony Leung Ka-Fai. - It was called Assasians and Bodyguards. That movie pretty much sets up the scene for 1911 pocket watches and all (you'll see plenty of pocket watches in this film, thats for sure.) I suggest watching it for more background on who Dr. Sun is and why he is so important to the revolution as A&B takes place in 1906.

Lets skip ahead 5 years to 1911, The country is in Chaos, the rebels (good guys!) are being slaughtered but taking out the enemy for the cause to gain Nationalism and end the evil Qing Dynasty. - No propaganda is used in the film which surprised me, I sat in a theater in Hong Kong to loud "AHHH" "Ohhh" "OH MY GOD" "WOW" even some women crying. by the end a standing ovation occurred and I was floored by what I had experienced.

Jackie Chan's labor of love, and wallet as he spent 30 Million American Dollars of his own money to fund this movie, pays off in the biggest way possible, by making an instant classic. by the FIRST 2 minutes you know the movie is going to be brutally epic and heart tearingly painful, in a gorgeous way. The movie moves into action very quickly, and Jackie Chan's role as the 8 fingered general is so very well suited, a very important historical figure but not as important as Winston Chao's Dr. Sun, the leader and idealist / strategist of the rebellion, Thus they share screen time 50/50, although the most shining moments in action and drama are with Jackie - Soaked in blood unloading endless hail of bullets to a nice kung-fu realism scene. This movie has something for everyone that has an interest in War, Drama, even Romance.

This is an instant classic, an easy 10 out of 10. I'd probably give it a 99%/100% if I had to rate it, only a point off due to wishing the movie added an extra 20-25 minutes 5 more of the amazing action that engulfs the film already, and another 20 minutes of more character development during the warfare; but don't get me wrong at 2 hours everything you need to know and will need to know is given.. and the performances are to die for. Hong Kong Film Assoc. will most certainly give Jackie the Movie of the year, I hope they give him Actor of the year as he deserves it along with Director (split award). Perhaps Bing BIng Lee as best supporting actress and Winston Chao as best supporting actor.

Go see this. Now.
