Zhang Yimou has become a great artisan, going round and round the ancient epics of his country (even its 1937) with his anxiety of a western escape. Note that in the middle of this gothic world war horror, USA with all his disipations, is a saint refuge.

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by Zhang Yimou and starring Christian Bale and since it seemed to have a decent reputation, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I was really surprised by how lame the damned thing actually turned out be and I’m still bewildered by the fact that this movie has such high ratings on this website and on IMDb (around 7.5). However, the fact that it had a much lower Metascore (only 46%) should have been a major red flag though. Anyway, eventually, pretty much nothing worked in this movie.
