Goofs:
Anachronisms: When the revolutionary leader is on the ocean liner heading for China, the lifeboats on deck are too modern: they are painted bright orange and have built-in engines (note the propellers). The movie is set in 1911, so none of these characteristics would be present. Lifeboats of that era were rowboats, usually painted white.See more »

No matter what anyone says, this is utterly fantastic. A historical drama based on the founding of the Republic of China when nationalist forces led by Sun Yat-sen overthrew the Qing Dynasty. The metaphors in this movie are so abundant. It holds the attention but demands complete suspension of logic.From an artistic standpoint, there were some plot elements and character developments I didn't think were totally needed. They do however drive the story, which seemed to be their purpose, so I can accept them. By the end, we feel that we have learned a great deal about the characters and the community that produced them. What a concept that is. I give this one a final rating of 7 out of 10, and it deserves it.
