tks to sandra's connections here, we got to go c the press preview of this upcoming film w/heavy-duty cast and great director. the story is set in mid-19th century china during the taipen (太平）rebellion time. this part of the chinese history i'm not very familiar with, not tht i am w/the rest, but because i wasn't ever interested in the art of ths dynasty, i don't kno much about its historical events either. this film is def an award-winning pc. ea/of the 3 main men, andy lau, jet li, and takeshi had their fair share of acting and carried it out their parts very well. i'm quite impressed with the film overall, happy to say.
