Product Description

Dexterous martial arts legend Jackie Chan reaches his 100th film milestone with this historical drama set in the year 1911, as the Chinese public begins to revolt against the Qing Dynasty that has ruled the country for 250 years. As the child emperor takes the throne and his mother, Empress Dowager Longyu (Joan Chen), clings to power, famine sweeps the land and warring factions clash in battle. Meanwhile, the "New Army" beings targeting rebels and the desperate leaders of the Qing Dynasty begin putting the country's future at risk through rampant trading with foreign countries. When Huang Xing (Jackie Chan) returns home from studying modern warfare in Japan, he finds his homeland consumed by strife. Realizing that the only hope for the future is for China to take up arms and topple the Qing Dynasty, Huang enters into an epic battle that threatens devastating consequences for the common people. Bing Bing Lee, Jaycee Chan, and Winston Chao co-star.

Format: Blu-ray
Though the film succeeds as a painfully accurate slice of history, it's uneven and inconsistent. I was hoping for an epic, and some of the photography is outstanding, but the editing is unexpectedly choppy, sadly turning potential scenes of panorama into quick snapshots. (Also, there are questionable choices in how the material is shot - ie. unnecessary multi-angles and unnecessary scenes). Other moments that should be brief, linger a bit too long and lean towards melodrama. Be prepared to sit close to the screen if you want to know who the characters are or how the footnotes pertain to the scene (miniature type - in the middle of the screen - about 25% the size of the subtitles). Though important to understanding the story and historical accuracy, they only add to the overall distraction by technique. Despite or because of it all, the film is bizarrely interesting. Unfortunately however, I didn't feel any emotional involvement - and there is a fair bit of tragedy. It only runs 99min. so there was room to expand and even out the material. Jackie Chan is fine (as is Joan Chen who portrays the Empress Dowager), but at some points his voice seems dubbed by someone with deeper vocals. On the blu-ray, there is approx. 35min. bonus footage with deleted and behind the scenes footage, plus trailer. (Might have been nice to have a history scholar commentary.)

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.

“Jackie Chan’s 1911 Revolution” Is such a short tale of history he put together here, which did
not give the movie the essence it deserve, this should be about three hours long, if you don’t have
the Money or the Time why do director’s seem to put people through a history lesson that’s not
fully complete, you don’t have to get everything right but at lease make an effort,
it’s like there’re afraid of others getting mad at them, they'll get mad no matter what we’re all humans
after-all, when you’re been subject to 250 years of rule by the Qing Dynasty it’s time to break free,
“1911 Revolution Is Still Something To See.

The movie is good but dont expect an action movie, its a history movie. I knew this before buying and am pleased with Jackie Chans acting. The delivery was quick but the case was damaged.

I gave it 3 stars, as it goes through a lot of history in a short time, needed to be 3 or 4 hour epic.
