A truly moving and powerful film based on true events - Aftershock review by ds

Spoiler Alert
17/08/2014

I rented this based on the film description which is misleading and misrepresentative of what the actual film is. Having said that, I was pleasantly surprised by the film. The acting and directing is superb, really grabs your attention and keeps you attentive for over 2 hours. It's powerful and very moving, especially as it's based on true events. I'll be seeking out more films from this director and with these actors...

Post-earthquake soap - Aftershock review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
08/04/2019

If you watch this 2010 Chinese film for some disaster-movie action, you’re going to be disappointed. The 1976 Tangshan quake only lasts 5 minutes then there’s 2hr of soapy drama to sit through. The clue is in the film’s title. It’s competently acted and directed and it means well, but the factual ending at the 2008 memorial to the 240,000 who lost their lives is more affecting than anything in the fictional film itself. It follows various characters over the decades following the quake and is pure soapy melodrama.
