Reviews

Celebrate the landmark 100th movie of Jackie Chan's outstanding career in film and re-live the violent and heartbreaking events of The Xinhai Revolution: a bloody uprising that brought the despotic Qing Dynasty crashing to its knees, ending nearly 3,000 years of feudal oppression.

Action legend, Jackie Chan, commands the screen as Huang Xing: the fearless resistance leader and military genius, who opposed a 20,000-strong Imperial Army during the 1908 Guang Xi Uprising with only 200 men! Now, as military commander to legendary revolutionary leader, Sun Yat-sen, he will lead an impoverished and vastly outnumbered rebel army against the Emperor s elite Royal Forces in a battle that will change the course of history!

Experience iconic filmmaking on an epic scale with this physically imposing vision (Variety) from The King of Action Cinema.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER on 6 April 2012
Format: DVD
This film was made to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the Xinhai Revolution or Hsinhai Revolution also called The 1911 Revolution. It was part of a series of uprisings against the last Imperial dynasty that of the Qing Dynasty. The starting point is the Wuchang uprising where Jackie Chan playing Huang Xing leads a small group to slaughter, but inspired others to become `martyrs' for the cause.

That is the historical basis for the film and the makers did try to get as much of their version of history across as possible. A lot of the reasons for the revolt were an accumulation of grievances and the out moded feudal system that still persisted by the Manchu minority ruling over the Han majority; this is not really touched upon in the film. What we do have is the work of revolutionary fund raiser Sun Yat Sen played by Winston Chao, and his efforts to thwart more foreign aid going to the Qing's coffers. There is also the internal politics and screaming self interest that goes on at the Imperial court.

All of this is balanced fairly well with lots of fighting that is done in that colour filter way to add realism and on the whole is very good. The problem here is speed and editing. Every time a new character or location appears we have small print sub titles coming up in both Mandarin and English. Not only are they nigh on impossible to read on even a large TV, they also appear for a few seconds whilst at the same time the other subs for the dialogue appear too. Even using the pause button it was still a bit of a chore.

Then we have the foreigners who are all cardboard cut outs and played by some D list drama school drop outs, they even all appear to be dubbed; which is woeful.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER on 11 Aug. 2013
Format: DVD
The movie starts with a failed battle in the Revolution. The reasons why the Qing dynasty is being deposed is not mentioned until later in the story and then only in abstract fashion. Much of the movie concentrates on overseas Chinese money funding the revolution as well as the attempts to stop foreign investors from loaning money to the Qing dynasty. This gives you a behind the scenes look at a revolution.

The movie was littered with patriotic slogans and noble causes to the point it interfered with the smoothness of the production as a historical piece into a modern Chinese patriot production. The message of the revolution is of self sacrifice for the good of the nation and don't forget to keep sending those dollars back home. I felt lost a few times during the film and that the producers of the movie had less historical integrity than an Oliver Stone film. The attempt to make heroes out of everyone who participated in the revolution was over done. I kept waiting for them to cut off the emperor's head and parade it through the streets and then I got really disappointed. Seems the Chinese are not French. I could never relate to the characters.

I love these more serious movies we're getting from Jackie now that he's sadly reached an age which makes his usual stunts difficult to do. Movies such as The Shinjuku Incident for example.
However, I didn't really enjoy this movie to be honest.

Jackie himself was not to blame for this I just felt the movie itself was very hard to follow. It felt as though we had a battle scene, followed by some political argument over money & funding, then back to another battle, more talking political debates, etc etc.
Maybe it was just me but I felt that someone going into this movie with no knowledge of the event in history would, as did I, find it very hard to keep track of what was going on.

Worth a watch but NOT a must watch for fan's of Jackie.

Sun Yet-sen, is the father of the Chinese Republic.
Say what you want about Mao, no one has a bad
word to say about Sun Yet-sen. And rightly so...

Think Nelson Mandela, Ghandi and Martin Luther
King, and this is how important this man is to China
and Chinese history.... Sadly... 1911, is a very bad
movie of his life... This movie, seems to want to tell
us every detail of the 1911 revolution. All well and
and good, but we are drowned by facts, that makes
this a very dull and uninteresting film, that is told
MUCH better in other films, on the same subject,
like Bodyguards and Assassins, or The Great Revival.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It is a panoramic history, not just in the scale of the scenes and the sumptuous period costumes, but the race through the history of unusually turbulent times in China. The actors have been selected for amazing resemblance to the real historical figures, although the acting is not always completely convincing.

The film has been made from a Chinese perspective. The people portrayed are well known figures to educated Chinese viewers, and the events recalled by almost all from school history books. For the western viewer who might be less well versed in Chinese revolutionary history the film will seem to move too quickly and with insufficient explanation. I recommend that you familiarize yourself with this period of history before watching.
