Critic Reviews for The Eight Hundred

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (6)

The Eight Hundred bites off more that it can chew but it consistently serves up gripping filmmaking on the biggest canvas.

September 18, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

"The Eight Hundred" fetishizes martyrdom, but for those seeking big-screen, epic violence, it's pretty much the only game in town.

September 16, 2020 | Full Review…

Guan goes hammer and tongs with the special effects, delivering stupendously, joint-rattlingly-loud battle scenes and combat sequences edited to the lightning pace of a superhero movie.

The Eight Hundred is thin on characterization, and too often slips into rote narrative and war movie cliches.

September 1, 2020 | Full Review…

[A]t least those who like blunt metaphors with their war movies will get a kick out of Hu's most blatant device: a majestic white horse that the NRA lets gallop through the warehouse as if rubber-stamped with the words "hope."

August 28, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Plunges audiences into both the intimacy and magnitude of brutal war spectacle while immersing them in a stunningly mounted period canvas.
