good watch.. found it on netflix

this movie deserves more viewers


I just finished watching it myself. The fighting was incredible.

The only negative aspect was once again the heavy handed Anti-Japanese propaganda that seems to be in most films coming out of China these days. This reminds me of American films in the 50's and 60's with a Russian behind every corner getting ready to eat your children.

We get that the Japanese did horrible things in the early 1900's. Is the Chinese government trying to brainwash their populace into justifying some sort of action they are planning or something? Is it really necessary to portray Japanese as over the top cowards in every second movie? Does the Chinese government have a spotless history from the 1900's? No, far from it. Yet I never see anything about that in the movies (for obvious reasons). So stop with the propaganda already
