Trivia

Originally scheduled to premiere June 15, 2019, but called off one day earlier, citing 'technical difficulty', with premiere date unannounced. Media argued the cancellation was due to producers' lack of political sensitivity. This year marked 70th anniversary of Communist Party victory against the Nationalists. The producer company's stock price also fell by 8% the day the premiere was called off. See more »

Goofs

The warehouse is located in the northern bank of the Suzhou Creek, the Suzhou Creek flows eastward and joins the Yangtze river roughly one kilometer afterward. Therefore the Yangtze should be east of the warehouse. Yet the position of the Yangtze on the VFX shot during the plane fight scene can be seen at the west of the warehouse. See more »

Emotional roller coaster

The movies is shown from a different aspect, which is something I haven't seen ever since hacksaw ridge. The movie tells a story that you might of never heard of but it's a battle you should know. This movie shows courage, unity, and braveness among the soldiers. It's very inspiring and I hope the future generations can witness it first hand. Truly a masterpiece!
