1.0 out of 5 stars Was horrible , bootleg Maybe? January 18, 2014
Verified Purchase
This movie didn't even play in one of my blue ray players. Aside from Jet Li appearing briefly in the beginning of the movie I never saw Jackie Chan or Donnie Yen. Andy Lau seemed to be the main character in the movie even though he was barely advertised aside from the back of the cover. The action scenes that were supposed to exist were merely black in white ww2 scenes whenever something of action came about. I got the sense that this was merely a bootleg from whoever sent it , and couldn't watch it more than once. Was very disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Will NOT play on US/Canadian Region A Player!!! September 30, 2012
By Frank
I purchased this from the Amazon UK site (Amazon.co.uk) because it was touted there, as here in the US, as being region-free, but it's not. At least it won't play on my US Region A PS3. If you live in the US or Canada, don't waste your money!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Eh...... February 20, 2012
The image on the cover is very misleading. I agree with what the other reviewers are saying about how the story is sugar coated to make it sound like communism the best thing to ever happen.

This is a film obviously by the winners of the Chinese Civil War following the end of WWII. It is interesting from a historical perspective, but it's a little too obviously created by the winners (Red Chinese). The Kuo Min Tang is painted in a very unflattering light. I'm not saying that any of it is inaccurate, but the evilness of Chiang Kai-shek and his minions borders on the cartoonish. I'm also not saying that the wrong side won: I can't judge that sort of thing, not being there at the time.

This my first review of ANYTHING on amazon, only to warn other Kung fu movie fans to NOT buy this thinking it's an action film! It's a historical drama without ANY Kung fu action at all! The 3 main "stars" on the cover art, appear for less than 5 minutes on screen, and not even in the same scene no less! Jet Li, Jackie Chan, and Donnie Yen, are in minor, bit roles that could have been portrayed by a nobody in Asia or Hollywood and the movie would have had the same effect.
