Director Stephen Spielberg helms this sweeping account of one boy's odyssey in China circa World War II in "Empire of the Sun" (1987). Batman-to-be Christian Bale, then age 12, plays a plane-obsessed English boy separated from his parents during the Japanese attack on Shanghai. Over his war-time adventures Bale encounters such memorable characters as a young Japanese aviator and John Malkovich as an opportunistic U.S. soldier. Nominated for multiple Academy Awards, "Empire of the Sun" represents one of Spielberg's most complex and mature motion pictures.

    Comments about this product:

    The film is from a child's perspective, even though this is a film for all ages. You are watching an intelligent and engaging boy who transitions from an entitled background to, upon experiencing the separation from his parents and the horrors of World War II, a POW in a Japanese camp. I appreciated the view of a child; his fascination of airplanes, his lack of understanding and fear when running into trouble, his helpfulness to the others in the camp. Even when the atomic bomb was dropped in his vicinity, he views the death clouds almost magically. The film ends well: the boy is reunited with his parents, his mother's face (whom he has forgotten) breaks the spell and you see he will recover from his emotional pain.
