Filmmaker John Woo brings RED CLIFF, the epic historical drama based on a legendary 208 A.D. battle that heralded the end of the Han Dynasty, to life in this action-packed U.S. theatrical version. A power-hungry Prime Minister-turned-General Cao Cao seeks permission from the Han Dynasty Emperor to organize a southward-bound mission designed to crush the two troublesome warlords who stand in his way, Liu Bei and Sun Quan. Vastly outnumbered by Cao Cao's brutal, fastapproaching army, the warlords band together to mount a heroic campaign - unrivaled in history - that changes the face of China forever.
Enjoyed the movie and the characters. There were a few cliches that are common in this genre, but overall enjoyable.Published 1 day ago by PaulT
Cliche-ridden melodrama. Big sweeping shots, good. Characters' lines, not so good. Too much stereotyping of personalities: really, really good heroes, really really evil... Read morePublished 2 days ago by now what
Not the style we are used to, but interesting. We have a Chinese student staying with us and we played it in Chinese with English subtitles. Read morePublished 2 days ago by John S. Vecchitto

|Red Cliff.... international vs US theatrical.||
I noticed that for the longer International version, the subtitles are in Spanish only whereas for the shorter US version, the subtitles are in Spanish and English. Is there a way I can get the longer 288-min version but with English subtitles?

Yes, this is the uncut version at a runtime of 288 minutes!
It is a region 1 disc, so it will play in US and Canadian machines.

My package arrived sealed, but Part II would not play. I tried it on both my Sony PS3 and Panasonic BDT100. Has anyone experienced this problem?
