Very sensational, outrageous and repeated reproduction of the stories in a coarse entertainment without emotion.
"The  Founding of the Army" is an epilogue war thriller commemorating the  90th anniversary of founding Communist China's armed forces, rebuilding a  series of events and battles that led to the formation of the People's  Liberation Army. The film has a strong renunciation of  humanistic sensibility but effectively demonstrates contemporary  warfare, while constantly shifting attention from the sufferings of  individual soldiers to the party's commitment to the revolutionary  course. The result, while exciting as propaganda, is  dubious ... In short the film is caricatured by its frivolous lifestyle,  and portrayed with little explanation.
