RED CLIFF is the epic historical drama based on a legendary 208 A.D. battle that heralded the end of the Han Dynasty. 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, fast-approaching army, the warlords band together to mount a heroic campaign - unrivaled in history - that changes the face of China forever.

While it won't fully satisfy historical purists OR purist fans of the novel, Red Cliff stands as one of the few pieces of cinema that does its legendary setting proud.
Well, since I thought that this movie was so good, I don't think I'd mind to have this story made available with more material and more detail. To watch both these original international films, the story nearly runs about five hours. I then watched both parts one and two over a two day period, and I got to love all that missing detail, and all that additional character development, and all that additional explanation of the intricate war strategies that added common sense realism to the successful win of the smaller two countries of the Southland.
I, at first, was disappointed that this full 5 hour saga wasn't available with the English dub track that the single theatrical version did, but after watching this shorter version again and WITH the English dub, I am actually disappointed with the less-than-pleasing English dubbing. The English dubbing lacked the emotion of the original language, plus it sounded like the English dubbing actors were reading as they were speaking. I was rather uncomfortable with it.
But, I guess, all this disappointment that I have with this shorter English dubbed version, is because I now have the full five-hour original language version to compare it to, so I will always wish to watch the two-disc version from now on. The shorter single disc version also has the original Cantonese dub track, which is how I would recommend people to watch the film (with the English subtitles, instead of the dub). So this shorter single disc version will just be the disc that I will loan to friends or take to holiday parties with my family. If they like it, I'll then let them borrow my full five-hour version.
Believe me, if you liked this 2 and a half hour theatrical version, and if you don't mind reading subtitles, then get the two-disc five-hour version. It is so much better.
