A great, heartfelt movie
I really don't get why this movie only got 5.3 and all you lousy comment posters have to really bash on this movie. This is actually the opposite, it's better than most of the crap Hollywood is throwing at us!
Acting: Decent actors, but Paul Kersey's death screams when his plane was about to crash really distracted me from the film. Jing Ling is much better looking than Ziyi Zhang in my opinion.
Directing: My dad is familiar with Chinese film and says that the director is well-known and renowned in China (aside from Yimou Zhao, of course).
Sound: So-so. It's not spectacular but not absolutely horrible at the same time. But, the music score is AWESOME (it melted my heart).
Picture Quality: Honestly, I thought that this film was made in the 70's (lol). Anyway, it added to the atmosphere in some way.
Overview: Great film for romance buffs and maybe will attract the war movie fanatics. The people who made this film really put effort in this film and it shows. It might not be a classic, but it really sinks into your heart. It digs deep into human emotions.
