    i believe that fully 60% of all chinese movies are what they call "sweeping dramas" or "epic dramas." why is that? it all gets to be a bit much sometimes, don't you think? i wish they would stop taking themselves so seriously...lighten up, for god's sake. which pretty much is the sum total of my feelings on this movie. that, and i'm a Bigbig Fan of Bingbing Fan.

    Sacrifice is mostly a melodrama concerned with deception, betrayal and just what makes a family. It is handsomely done and well-acted, but it lacks real energy or purpose.

    It's tough to care about characters who spend most of their lives obsessing over the violent deaths of others.

    Ultimately, the film works because the doctor's relationship with the general - and both of their relationships with the doctor's young boy - is just as complicated as the action-packed coup.
