From start to finish BRILLIANT!!By 26mikey2010 (12 reviews) from caithness , 09 May 2013AMAZING MOVIE, please rent this film, pitch dark room, no distractions and sit back and enjoy this one, 5 STAR MOVIE!!
Beautifully Shot Historical TaleBy Dapprman (51 reviews) from Watford , 11 Feb 2013This is John Woo at his best. The filming is beautiful, the pace ebbs in flow in harmony with the plot. If you dislike the over-the-top acrobatic nature of many Eastern movies and Western copies, then fear not. Sure there is some 'super-human' stuff, but it is limited and doesn't detract from the big battles scenes where they occur. If you're worried about it's length, being close to two and a half hours in length, then don't worry. I was ill watching it, with the concentration span of a goldsfish, but I still managed close to two hours before waning - most TV shows I'm lost in under 5 minutes. Over all probably John Woo's best movie to date
Superb FilmBy a customer , 21 Dec 2012One of the best films I've seen for a long time. Subtitled but well worth the rental. Can't wait to see Red Cliff II now,
epic story and great fight scenesBy jimden (1 review) , 05 Nov 2012Without doubt one of the best war films i have ever seen. I will be looking out for another john woo film to watch.
Just too muchBy tzec (65 reviews) , 09 Jul 2012As an epic, it scores highly all round; but was way too long winded and drawn out. As a TV series it would have been better - and I believe it was originally over 5 hrs long! Just too much.
