However, there is a difference in reading history and all the minute events that contributed to it, and watching history in a concise manner on video. The main events of the civil war have been captured very well. In almost every event that is presented in the movie, it has a captioning to help the audience understand the time, the character and the event. Most of the focus in the movie have been on meetings, as these meetings were some of the more important events in the creation of history. The historical events were created by men; great leaders led and supported the movement. The leader Mao Zedong was represented in the movie by Tang Guoqiang and the other main character was Chiang Kai-shek of the KMT who is portrayed by Zhang Guoli. In the early meeting, both leaders are represented in a way that the viewer is left in no doubt that both were just as powerful. They are both the disciples of the person who set up the country’s first republic, Sun Yat-sen. In reading a history book, one tends to read more on the leader who led the civil revolution and the one whose foundation of administration is currently existent.
There are chances that the person reading it might not get the actual understanding on who led the opposition, what their ideals were, or in this case how corrupted the person and party was, even though the person themselves was represented as a strong personality. The KMT has been represented in a fair way and the current media reports suggest that this movie might get released in 2016. However, when watching the movie and also reading some of the movie commentary on the Telegraph, it can be seen that some movie dialogues might be difficult for the KMT to accept in present times. KMT is shown in the movie as having suffered defeat by its own undertakings. This is indeed a representation in historical literature, too. Literature research on the subject shows that the KMT Research studies on the subject shows that China was a dilapidated state when the Communist party was created and led the revolutionary transformation of the state (Tsou, 1999). It was a time when the imperialist elements existed in the KMT and the imperialist ideology was much more dominant in the ruling.
