DVD, PG, 160 minutes, WARNER

Based on J.G. Ballard's autobiographical novel, Empire of the Sun stars Christian Bale as a spoiled young British boy, living with his wealthy family in pre-World War II Shanghai. During the Japanese invasion, Bale is separated from his parents. With the help of soldier-of-fortune John Malkovich, Bale learns to survive without a retinue of servants at his beck and call. By the time Malkovich and Bale are tossed into a Japanese prison camp, the boy has picked up enough street-smarts and developed enough intestinal fortitude to regard his imprisonment as an exciting adventure. The story ends during the 1945 liberation: on the verge of manhood, the 13-year-old Bale will never again be the pampered, privileged brat whom we met in the early scenes. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5★by 6reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★by Good Movie I love Speilburg! This was one of his films I never got to see in its entirety. After buying this DVD, I learned that this is a true story, and enjoyed listening to the actual personal account of the story. I love history and I enjoyed this movie immensely. And as an extra treat, seeing "The Dark Knight" as a kid was a hoot! His performance was exceptional. If you like history, if you like seeing places you have never been, you will love this film too. 12/02/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★by Must see movie! This is a very good movie. Steven Spielberg at his best. I don't remember a lot of commercial time given to this movie when it premiered. Almost a sleeper.Christian Bale fans will appreciate his exceptional performance, especially at such a young age. The movie is slow at certain times. But stick with it, you won’t be disappointed. 05/26/2008
