Well after waiting a few months I finally was able to see the second part of John Woo’s Red Cliff. It was fantastic! The strategy of the epic last battle was so ingenious.
I think it’s the first movie series that I’ve seen that really captures what’s cool about the Three Kingdoms story. The personalities of the main characters is the important part. When they need thousands of arrows, Zhuge has a really cool and ingenious way of getting them. I really want to get these two movies on Blu-ray someday. Too bad the Japanese release only has Japanese subtitles (because only Japanese people live in Japan, right?).Anyways here’s a trailer so you can see some of it yourself.
