Genre: Historical drama

Directors: Jackie Chan, Zhang Li

Stars: Jackie Chan, Winston Chao, Joan Chen


A historical drama about the Xinhai Revolution that brought down China’s Qing Dynasty, 1911 positions Sun Yat-Sen (Chao) and Huang Xing (Chan), the revolution’s leaders.

But its perspective is split between military general Yuan Shikai and the Empress as well as the revolutionaries, creating a slow and confusing film.

The battle scenes are well shot, but 1911 brings nothing new to the genre and will be of little interest to anyone uninterested in Chinese history.
