A stylsih and epic extended battle flick with insights to military strategy (albeit dramatised). I enjoyed this very much.
Almost insanely good! 9/10
The first part of John Woo's incredible epic Red Cliff. Wow. This huge, almost five-hour film recreates some of the most famous battles of Chinese history from its Three Kingdoms era, with a wonderful cast headed by my personal favorite, Tony Leung. And while he's awesome in it, there are tons of other characters to love here, from the Mulan-like princess who goes undercover to the beefy warrior who tackles a horse. The film could have been shorter, but Woo fills it with so much detail and texture, I wouldn't want it to be. Each part has its own front and end credits, so it feels perfectly natural to watch it on two nights anyway. The length need not scare you.
