Better to avoid this movie for many reasons
8 February 2020 | by ckormos1See all my reviews

This movie got my attention because I am a fan of old martial arts movies and the stars (Hsu Feng, Brigitte Lin, Chang Yi) appeared in some of the best.

This is actually a war movie with only a touch of martial arts. It is loosely based on history. There are many reasons for this movie to avoid accuracy of the facts of the Japanese occupation of Shanghai. I will avoid getting into that and simply say this. That occupation was a war crime equal to the Nazi war crimes against the Jews. As long as there is no denial of that fact there is no need to recreate it for a movie. This movie tries to create a point of view of some 800 Chinese heroes that somehow overcame all the tragedy. Instead of showing heroic actions, the movie was totally unrealistic and also boring. The fast forward button at your fingertip is mandatory to watch this mess. Better, don't press "play".

With that said, I feel no need to go into specifics to explain why the movie was a stinker. This review will be quick. I rated it next to nothing and my recommendation is to avoid.
