Aroview: In the tradition of unashamedly jingoistic cinema comes this state-sanctioned celebration of ninety years of Chinese Communist Party rule.

A historical pageant with extraordinary production values and almost the definitive Chinese cast, it's inevitably marred by its incessant calls to patriotism and some decidedly leaden dialogue.
