    Magnficent detail. Gruesome and heartwrenching. Makes 'Saving Private Ryan' seem mild in every way.

    Awesome WW2 movie, from a very different perspective. Action-packed the whole way through.

    wow, what an incredible movie. This rates up there with Saving Private Ryan. I have never seen a war movie like this, and it actually happened. I highly recommend this. Very realistic, very moving, and it happened. Such brave men.

    Visually gorgeous and emotionally gripping story, a fresh Chinese perspective on WW2 (and period leading into) in a field dominated by European POVs. Highly recommended.

    This is one of the best film i have ever seen. So much better than saving private ryan. The chinese japanese war was the most brutal war in WWII and this film got it right.

    Best Movie of 2020 by a mile. It shows the gritty harsh reality of war, with the reactions of the civilians across the river was genius. Rightly top of the 2020 box office charts.

    Jingoistic, propagandist, shite. If you want to see a flag-loving, good guys - bad guys flick set in WWII, download a John Wayne pic. The cinematography is the reason this picture doesn't rate 1 star. Interesting from an historical point of view but D.A.T.E.D. in character development & presentation. I WASTED money on this one.

    The Chinese epic war movie The Eight Hundred is the number one box-office hit worldwide for 2020, which again pinpoints how strange this year is. The film itself is a tremendous spectacle in terms of scope and technical aspects as it looks and sounds terrific, but it has no emotion to it and no characterization whatsoever. It's quite literally the Chinese version of Dunkirk in both its strengths and its weaknesses.

    'The Eight Hundred' is a very enjoyable war epic with a towering technical achievement commanding attention from start to finish.
