Storyline

In the 1940s, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor destroyed Americans' morale. The president of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt, decided to risk it all to bomb Tokyo, raising the public's hopes. Bombardment air crafts led by U.S lieutenant colonel Jimmy Doolittle took off from a massive aircraft carrier. However, after completing their missions, the bombardment air craft pilots had to bail out at the coastal areas near Zhejiang due to a shortage of fuel. A young pilot, Jack Turner, was saved by a young local widow named Ying, who risked her life as she hid the injured American pilot in her house. Despite not being able to communicate verbally, they fell for each other and a tear-jerking love story went on between the two.

The poor dialog writing of the Chinese Mandarin part
7 November 2018 | by BasicLogicSee all my reviews

Some of the Chinese dialog didn't feel right, normal or correct for any Chinese speaking to each other, especially this film is about a bunch of villagers living in a remote mountainous area. No kid would say "Fu-Chin (father)" to his mother, but would say "Dad (Die)" or "BaBa", "Fu-Chin" is too literal and popular enough to be used in a mountain village in China. There are so many incorrect and wrong use of the Chinese language in this film's dialog. Those words used in this film simply felt more like highly educated people living in the big cities, these people in this film instead were living in a remote poor village in the mountain area, most of them would be illiterate since its around 1945. So every time, when the Chinese characters speaking, it's just not right but only bad screenplay writers would use such theater language that were not spoken by realistic Chinese people in their daily lives.

I often felt that most of the Chinese screenplay writers never could script correct and normal dialog speaking among the common Chinese people, every word just felt staged, like watching actors speaking on a theater stage. They cannot separate, distinguish, or truly grasp the realistic words according to the locations, the era, the time frames, the age differences, the education backgrounds, male or female gender differences....but just lazily and carelessly used the same format to write the scripts' dialog.

This is the main reason why most of the time I could only give lower ratings to most Chinese movies, because they just felt false and absolutely ridiculous.

This film was made, produced and released before the Japanese Prime Minister, Abe, revisited China a few days ago, and the Chinese Communist higher-ups suddenly changed their attitude to the Japanese government from hateful animosity to brotherhood love and friendship. If this film release date in China was scheduled when Prime Minister Abe's visiting date, then it would be definitely banned. Innocent Chinese villagers were viciously shot or chopping head off by the Japanese are now so unpopular and would be cunningly forbid or not recommended by the Chinese Communist government.
