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.

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.

I was expecting a lot more action but not realising this was a historical renactment of certain instants of history so for me I will be keeping it filed away for study, Having said that I did find that some of the actual facts had been glossed over and an interpretation of events was portrayed relying on heresay or conjecture rather than actual fact. So the story teller has taken quite a lot of poetic licence. It is a film that certainly makes you think about the stuggles and it did inspire me to do my own research so in that respect it was a gleaming success.

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.

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.

Anyone expecting a Jackie C movie will be disappointed (though thy do sneak one short martial arts fight in for him) but it is a serious history film, as other reviewers have pointed out. It is visually well done but suffers from the problem such films have - how to explain what it going on without turning into a documentary. The battle scenes are excellent and a lot of effort has been put into details like uniforms and period detail.

But at the end of the day, it is really only one for history buffs who already have some interest in the period.
