Storyline

In 1937, Japan began their invasion of China by murdering over 300,000 people in the capital of Nanjing. The atrocities committed against women and their daughters are especially barbaric. In Beijing, there are rumors that a masked man is systematically killing Japanese soldiers, working his way to the top Japanese General of the 1937 invasion on Chinese women. With the world's attention on Europe, treaties are useless and genocide rages throughout the country going unnoticed. An American reporter is sent to China to uncover the truth about the unrest between China and Japan. What he finds threatens his own life and the sovereignty of the United States.

Too bad to even try to sit through
22 November 2015 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Let's put it this way: if you paid €1 for this film, you'll feel robbed.

After the competent introduction using stock footage, the film begins proper with god-awful CGI blood and it's not a good sign. The "acting" then kicks in and, along with the poor dialogue, cheesy music and cheap setting, this has "low budget trash" written all over it.

Now, where I've nothing against low budget films, I do have plenty against bad films, and am I really going to waste another 80-odd minutes of my life on something so thoroughly terrible, or am I going to turn it off 10 minutes in and warn others not to even bother with it?

So, not much of a "review" for this, but more of a warning. Hopefully, this helps.
