Storyline

The film tells the story of a grounded American pilot during the Second World War who learns about the noble spirit of the Chinese poeple when he is rescued by the communist-led Chinese army after an emergency landing near the Great Wall. On the way to the Communist base, the pilot falls in love with a girl soldier whose lingering memory of being raped by the Japanese makes her a determined fighter. Half a century later, the American pilot returns to the Yellow River to pay his respects to the native people who rescued him. Written by Anonymous

Proof that not only Westerners can make dumb movies
20 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

Yeah, it's pretty bad. The Chinese thought they probably couldn't miss if they followed the Hollywood formula and put in a Western actor. I'd heard about it for a few years but finally caught up with it on Chinese TV. It's one of those films where you can predict every scene in advance, which is the measure of bad scriptwriting, if not lazy scriptwriting. Clichés abound: hokey "noble" sacrifices, heroes miraculously being missed by every bullet fired by an entire troop, etc, etc. It's all hard on the eyes, and the brain, but hardest on the ears is the narration by the guy playing the American soldier, who keeps telling us of 'Angel', his Chinese compatriot, with awful, reverential voiceovers ("She wuz mah AIN-jil...")
