Movie: The Fall of Ming

October 6th, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

This is a very good historical drama, easily one of the best I have watched. However, it is a flop at the box office so it is not very well known. For a movie to be successful, it usually must attract cinema goers. Unfortunately, although this movie is realistic and have a good script, there is no captivating theme that can attract an audience. In fact, it has a very dark undertone making it an uncomfortable watch for many. Nevertheless, if you want a dramatic look at how the Ming Dynasty fell, this movie gives quite a few aspects of it. I am interested in your opinion after viewing, please leave comments of what you feel or think after watching. Thanks.

    As I am someone who has spent considerable time studying the rise and fall of various dynasties in China what happened in the movie didn’t come as a surprise to me. Nevertheless, I learned something new from this movie, namely the doctor Wu Youke. It did reinforce my belief that at this stage it is better for a new dynasty to take hold of China as the Ming court and society have decayed beyond repaired.
