It's 1937 and China is on the brink of collapse. Nanking is under siege from the Japanese Imperial Army, the streets awash with violence, the civilians desperate. The protective walls of a western church provide the only haven from the vicious battles outside. Here, an American John Miller (Christian Bale) caught in the midst of the chaos, joins a small group trying escape the violence wrought by the Japanese army.

Through one act of heroism, this group of disparate refugees fight back, risking their lives for the sake of others and the nation. Inspired by true events, The Flowers Of Wartells the incredible story of an unlikely group standing up against an unimaginable and overwhelming evil.

 Wrong aspect ratio

Beware, this film was shot in 2.35:1 widescreen ratio. The BluRay is cropped to 1.85:1, which means you are not seeing the full widescreen images created by Zhang Yimou.

 wonderfully shot

...im writing a review purely on the film....not how it was shot with what camera and how good it looks on your TV, or if you need 3D glasses to watch it....just the film. Christaian Bale is caught up in a war in the east, just a passer by looking to make a few bucks, then it all turns real when the people he befriends come under trouble. Well worth watching, and i've bumped it it from the 1 star it was left with because someone didn't like the crispness/size of the picture.....pfft

A trip back to Nanking with Christian Bale coming into the role of protector. He strolls into Nanking on private mission of selfishness, but is quickly forced into becoming human to protect and save the females around. It is a simple story which is filled with a lot of heart, the characters are realistic and all possess their unique qualities and downfalls. At times it can be difficult to watch due to the subject matter, but still it is a lot less callous than other previous movies. The movie has a strong heroic feel, at times it feels slightly too heroic. Also the ending is a little too safe, it ends easily and can leave viewers slightly disappointed. It's a good movie but far from Great.
