This is not just another communist propaganda movie.
Currently, every film that is to be made in China has to be approved by the government first.

It actually has some scenes which can be inferred to the current situation of Chinese communist party.

It seemed that it showed the history correctly without trying to make the Kuomintang people acting like idiots or clowns. Even though many historical people appeared in the film, this film is not hard to follow. I was captivated by it for the entire two hours.
