3 Sacrificing to Savestuartfear | 06/04/2013 | See all stuartfear's reviews (766)Top 100 Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer 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.
