At the beginning of the 20th century, China is in a state of crisis. The ruling Qing Dynasty, led by a seven-year-old emperor, and his ruthless mother, Empress Dowager Longyu (Joan Chen) is completely out of touch after 250 years of unquestioned power. With ordinary citizens beginning to revolt openly, the Qing Dynasty has created a powerful, modern army (the “New Army”) to quash any rebellion. But weapons are expensive, and desperate for cash, the Qing leaders are trading anything they can get their hands on with foreign countries… and selling Chinaʼs future in the process. Huang Xing (Jackie Chan) has recently returned from Japan, where he has studied the art of modern warfare. When he finds his country falling apart, he feels he has no choice but to pick up the sword, leading an increasingly desperate series of violent rebellions against the powerful Qing Dynasty and the New Army.
*Note: Film is presented in Mandarin with English subtitles, and English dubbed. Full synopsis
A GREAT MOVIE...
This movie reminds one of Soviet propaganda films of the 1950s - important historical events put through an ideological meat grinder and historical figures reduced to one-dimensional cardboard...
I enjoyed this film. It was a labor of love by Jackie Chan, who spent almost 20 years developing this story & making it as historically accurate as possible. I am so weary of critics lamenting...
Sweeping, if exhausting, historical epic set at the turn of the 20th century.

If 1911 doesn't impress as historical spectacle, neither does it rank high as a Jackie Chan film. Read full review
Throughout 1911 the sense of dutiful intentions blocks any building momentum. When an English-speaking character appears to declare that history is being made, it only underlines the obvious. Read full review
Chan, though, is very good in an all-dramatic role as a rebel general. There's lots of battle scenes, well-filmed, but only one martial arts scene. It seems out of place, but is most welcome nonetheless.
