Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Sun Yat-Sen: The goal of revolution isn't death, but to change fate. Young people are sacrificing themselves for the revolution, so that the living can lead better lives.

10/10 from Promotional Screening. Jackie is at his acting best, directing best, and the most violent and dramatic film of his career.
26 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

I've been excited for Jackie Chan's 100th movie for quite some time, initially I thought it would be the currently being filmed Armour of God 3: Zodiac (His Final "Kung Fu Super Stunt" Film), was depressed when I saw it was not. Then I began to see photos of 1911 and read up on the pre-production notes, and to me any Jackie Chan film is an amazing film - His track record in HK lately has been A-A+.

--100th Jackie Chan Movie: Check --100th Anniversary of the Chinese Revolution: Check

--Star Studded Cast of Jackie Chan, His son; Jaycee Chan, Lee Bing Bing, Winston Chao, and 70 famous HK actors even in small soldier roles that don't even get a speaking line?: Check

--30 Million USD Budget: Check (30 Million just for filming, no CGI all real explosions). --War scenes that stand next to Saving Private Ryan: Check

--Kung Fu / Fight Scenes: Check (One scene of which Jackie faces 6 men realistically --Incredible Directing and Cinematography: Check --Incredible Performances by all Actors: Check

I shall not ruin anything, but the first 20 minutes of this 2 hour long movie are filled with about 15 minutes of non-stop action, explosions, Gatling gun mowing down Dr. Sun and Jackie's Rebellions Soldiers, until Jackie is given suppressing fire and throws two grenades but his arm strength doesn't reach the Gatling gun, so he drops a grenade and kicks it like a football, moments that like scream out "AWESOME" even when its drenched in this depressing dramatic splurge of violence and realization of the lost lives that each battle taking place has, and that each person is 100% willing to die for the change of China. This does not ease the pain and impact from one persons death, the look on Jackie's face as one character sacrifices himself to save others as he is being dragged unwillingly by soldiers getting him to safety is one that sticks in the viewers memory.

I cannot sum up in words how this movie feels, it just feels perfect. It is substantial. It makes you cry, it gives a smile a few short times through-out the film, it keeps you on the edge of your seat, it churns your stomach at the body count, it dazzles you with the beauty in how the chaos was filmed. It equally dazzles you in the character development and the emotional bond the film creates.

As Jackie Chan's 100th movie; I could not see any other film standing at that career mile-stone. This is Jackie at his acting best, and directing best. He rides off of the Exceptional performance of Karate Kid (2010) and more notably the brilliant performances of Shinjuku Incident (2009) and Little Big Soldier (2010) - Jackie is perfect in the movie, and the movie itself is non-bias and perfect.

It feels human as a war film, unlike a Hollywood war epic such as "Pearl Harbor". Congratulations Jackie, I salute you; I hope you win Best Actor, Best Picture, Best Director and that the academy recognizes this film.
