Battle Clips from John Woo’s Red Cliff

8 Comments

For those who are interested in such things, John Woo’s martial arts epic “Red Cliff” (formerly “The Battle of Red Cliff”) opened in limited release in the States yesterday. Granted, the perfect timing for this post would have been yesterday, but hey, better late than never, right? In case you were still wondering what the movie is about, or if you should go see it, here’s a question: Do you like epic battle scenes? If the answer is Yes, then you should go see it. The film is a bit long, even at its current edited length of 2 hrs. 28 minutes. Trust me, that’s about 1 hour and 30 minutes shorter than the original Asian version, which clocked in at over 4 hours. Check out some battle scene clips from the movie below. Also added, the English trailer.

The film stars Tony Leung, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Zhang Fengyi, Chang Chen, Shido Nakamura, and is directed by John Wo. It’s currently playing in limited release, so check your theaters before you make the trip. Or hey, for those who would rather see the 4-hour original, buy the uncut import DVD.

    With the subject matter what it is, they should’ve just called it Dynasty Warriors: The Motion Picture. LOL It looks exactly like the game with massive battles and has many of the chracters.

    I’ve got a bit of a void myself in the wake of the excellent District 9, and I need something to fill it.
