Trivia

With its $461 million gross this was the top-grossing film of 2020 at the global box office, becoming the first non-Hollywood, non-English language film to top the annual worldwide list. This film also marked the first time China surpassed the United States as the world's largest box office market. However, much of this success is largely attributed to the global COVID-19 pandemic resulting in most Hollywood films having their releases postponed. See more »

If you don't like foreign ruling you will like it.
24 August 2020 | by vincent-83997See all my reviews

Not all people like this movie coz this movie is quite nationlistic. However you can't simply judge this movie as a bad one coz "there is not enough anti-war plot". This movie is about self-defense and anti-oppression. If you don't know much about Chinese history please don't judge around. In the 1930s China was weak and the country was in great chaos. The imperial Japanese army took advantage of China's weakness and invaded China. Most Chinese people were numb and apathetic about the country and that's why at the beginning of the story, citizens besides the Suzhou river were not interested about the battle and they only care about their own living. Even some soldiers didn't know why they have to fight. As time went by, soldiers gradually woke up and realized what their mission was, citizens realized what the soldiers were fighting for. The soldiers were from different parts of the country and they had their own plans but finally they stayed together as a whole. The connection between soldiers were so great, and so natural. That's because we all share a same idea----we don't want to be ruled by brutal foreigners. If you don't like foreign ruling, you can feel this passion. Great amount of character development. The explosion is awesome. The director had planed and prepared this movie for yrs and you will feel amazing by all the visual effects.
