Synopsis At the beginning of the 20th century, China is in a state of crisis. The country is split into warring factions and people are starving. With the citizens beginning to revolt, the Qings are creating a powerful, modern army to quash any rebellion. Huang Xing (Jackie Chan) has recently returned from Japan, where he has studied the art of modern warfare. When he finds his country falling apart, he feels he has no choice but to join the opposition, leading a series of violent rebellions against the powerful Qing Dynasty.

Begun on October 10, 1911, the Wuchang Rebellion led to the Xinghai Rebellion, which brought down the powerful Qings. From the walls of the Forbidden City to the battlefields of China, 1911 tells the true story of the rebellion with startling historical accuracy and truly epic sweep.
