This distributor is rather fond of repackaging foreign dramas etc as big large war movies. This contribution, with Chow Yun Fats name emblazoned on the top and irrelevent, photoshopped pictures of the Temple of Heaven etc. pass it off as a war period piece like "The Warlords", however this movie only stars him in a small background role and depicts the forming of the CCP amidst the turbulent 1920s China. I suppose they feared reference to Communism on the sleeve would hurt sales.
The movie itself is an average propaganda piece, but is rather historically interesting if one can ignore the bias.
