Red Cliff Part 2

Release date 23 January 2009
Language Mandarin
Director John Woo
Cast Tony Leung Chiu-wai, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Lin Chi-ling, Vicky Zhao, Chang Chen, You Yong, Zhang Fengyi

With a budget of US$80million, Red Cliff is the most expensive Asian-financed film to date. The movie is based on historical records of "The Chronicles of the Three Kingdom" rather than the novel, "Romance of the Three Kingdom". In the early third century, the land of Wu is invaded by the warlord Cao Cao and his million soldiers. The ruler of Wu, Sun Quan (Chang Chen), calls on the rival warlord Liu Bei (You Yong) for help, but their two armies are still badly outnumbered. However, the strategists Zhou Yu (Tony Leung) and Zhuge Liang (Takeshi Kaneshiro) see that Cao Cao's army is unused to battling on the sea. With 200,000 men, Zhou Yu and Zhuge Liang defeated Cao Cao's army at the Yangtze River.

I am totally zero about the Chinese history and also Romance of the three kingdom. huhu. So, I watch this movie like I watch any other movie. Always love to watch Tony Leung, Takeshi and Zhao Wei acting. The story is a bit flat, monotonous. Maybe that's how war story is. Takeshi is so brilliant in here. It is showed when he needs to make 100 000 arrows in 3 days and he managed to have them at 100 200 arrows. His tactic was beyond my imagination on how he collected the arrows that belong to the enemy (Cao Cao's army).

-I love it.. so 4/5 (****-)
