“Just fake”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2011

I've only been the Three Kingdoms City within the File Base. This just made me so disappointed.

If you want to experience the old Chinese history or the great novel story "Romance of the Three Kingdoms", the City would probably disappoint you. The main point is that all you can see in the base are so fake! Most of the architecture and construction are poor in appearance.

Moreover, there are some performances taken from some of the episodes of the novel. Of course I am a Chinese and have read the book, and I find that the appearance of actors and the plots just not to follow the real story. Sometimes, It seems that I was watching slapsticks.

The biggest event is a War-like show of which you can see the actors "fighting" on the horses. But the duration of the show is short. And It is better to say it is acrobatics on horses rather than war-like performance.

Overall, if you do not watch the shows, you would probably walk around the whole City in just one to two hours, let alone the bad feeling. And please be noted that the entrance fee is not cheap, I'd better say it is not worthwhile.

“An impressive movie set but only if you've seen the movies”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2011

Since I haven't seen that many CCTV dramas, the place felt like a plastic amusement park. The size of it is impressive and the troubler they've gone to, but there really isn't that much to experience if you don't know what the sets have been used for. I wouldn't go again.
