½

The Nanking Massacre was one of the biggest atrocities committed by the Japanese. This fourth film illustrates the harrowing nightmare of the crimes during the massacre. Like the first film, this is accurate in showing what it was like, and it has the take no prisoners feel that made the first film so disturbing. This is a piece of history in the sense that it happened, and it is somewhat of a necessary viewing in order for humanity to prevent these types of atrocities to happen again. The series is truly disturbing, but does work well as a teaching aid, in order for us to understand how history is essential in preventing us from this sort of thing again. This is a hard film to watch and it is graphic in its content, but it's how it was. This was what the Japanese did in Nanking, and it is a disturbing, but necessary portrait of the tragic events that happened. As a whole, it's a decent film, but like the original, is only worth seeing once, if you can handle due to its content. There are aspect that could have been improved upon, but the director did a fairly decent job at capturing the chaos of the atrocities on film. Despite this, this doesn't warrant multiple viewings and it should be seen if only you're interested in the history of the ordeal. Watch it with the understanding that this is a film that will most likely offend, and in that respect, you won't forget it, because after all, this is a film based on real events, and the Nanking Massacre was one of the many tragic mass murders that occurred during the Second World War.
