An American reporter arrives in China to investigate the Nanking Massacre amidst rumors that a mysterious assassin is methodically working his way up through the murderous Japanese soldiers on a mission to eliminate a top general. The year is 1937. As the growing unrest in Europe makes headlines across the globe, the Japanese invade China, killing over 300,000 civilians in a brutal act of genocide. Meanwhile, in Beijing, citizens whisper of a lone avenger who is single-handedly decimating the invading army. When an American newsman shows up in China seeking the truth behind all of the bloodshed, his shocking discovery threatens to have devastating repercussions. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
This movie mostly full of martial art action, but it is very entertaining!
The action scenes are exiting, the plot is a heart broken story, and the heroine is a strong but personal character, I mean you can't help feel pity for her.
But don't give me wrong it is still a WW2 movie, you learn about the japanese occupation of China (maybe a little over doing).
All in all, I was very entertained by this movie, I recommend it to anyone.
Having seen many Chinese movies, I had great expectations for this one. It is terrible. The two people playing Nazi officers are laughable, but this isn't a comedy. I suggest you don't rent this, but if you do, please leave your comments.
