Review of the Uncut HK version.

Amid the beloved historical epic tales of the "Battle or Romance of the Three Kingdoms", arose three movies in 2008. The very mediocre "Empress and the Warriors" with Donnie Yen, and late last year came the first chapter of John Woo's "Red Cliff". Daniel Lee's (Dragon Squad) "Three Kingdoms: Resurrection of the Dragon" was released a few months earlier in Asia than Woo's star-studded film (which I will review later), and has Hong Kong's Andy Lau (Running on Karma) in the lead as the famous General Zhao Zhilong--yes the same guy in the video game named Zhao Yun in "Dynasty Warriors". The film has massive commercial appeal, and the film is beautifully shot. However, purists of the tales of the Three Kingdoms will be annoyed and repulsed, as the film does feel a little empty in regards to an intricate storyline and full of historical inaccuracies. (Hint: John Woo's overly exaggerated film about the three kingdoms isn't much better)

228 A.D, before the rise of the Jin Dynasty. The kingdoms of Shu, Wei and Wu are divided. Zhilong (Andy Lau) is a simple soldier from Changsan who becomes a legendary warrior under the employ of Liu (Yueh Huah) who rises from the ranks of the Shu forces to become one of the "Five Tiger Generals". Zhilong becomes famous for his many campaigns against Cao and the last surviving general of the "Five Tigers". Now, after many years of war, Zhilong is set to make his last stand against Cho's granddaughter--who has become a beautiful, cold and stoic warrior woman; Cao Ling (Maggie Q, Live Free and Die Hard).

The film is narrated by Pingan (Sammo Hung), Zhilong's oldest friend who joined the Liu army with him many years ago.

I ordered this DVD from Amazon. Paid over $20 more dollar. The quality of the DVD BOX and DVD Disk print are blurt that it actually looks like pirate DVD. When I look at the DVD movie, there are frame that has some strange object on the screen. It made me think that this DVD was duplicated by filming the movie in the theater.

Plot seems fractured and it just doesn't flow, probably as it jumps through time too quickly and because of this you cannot get indepth with the characters and story. Mainly I think this is because the film is too short, it almost needs to be a trilogy! There is not enough time in the film to get to know all the different characters and feel for them through their struggles. Even the relationships between the characters during the film are so short it makes their own emotions seem fake. I really thought it had potential and I got right into it at the start...but once he becomes 'old' it rushes through too much to feel as though you can get indepth in the film on all levels...I felt it just scratches the surface of what seems a wonderful story. Awesome fight scenes make up for it though and I still enjoyed it, but left wanted more. Subtitles move to quickly unfortunately.

There are two things I don't like about this movie.

1. There are many major details that are not true to history. Fitstly, Zi Long or Zhao Yun did not die in the battle. He died of old age (1). Secondly, at the battle of Chanban, Liu Bei's wife, Lady Gan was not killed. She's rescued by Zhao Yun. Thirdly, Zhao Yun never fought with Cao Cao's niece according to history!

You can verify all the details by visiting wikipedia dot org. Sorry, I can't embed the link here. It seems Amazon is blocking that feature. If you find any other reliable website talking about the 3 kingdoms period in China, please put that information here. I'd appreciate that.

2. The acting and directing are not engaging as in other movies of the same genes such as the Warlords. The fighting scenes are so so but they're not good as the ones in the Warlords either.

For THREE KINGDOMS: RESURRECTION OF THE DRAGON, director-screenwriter-set designer(!) Daniel Lee decided only to adapt a small portion of Luo Guanzhong's sprawling Ming dynasty-era novel THE THREE KINGDOMS (namely chapter 92 of said book). Luo's epic is a classic of Chinese literature, similarly influential as works by Shakespeare and Goethe are in Europe. In an interview for the home video version of his film, Lee explains that he thought the story of the "tiger general" Zhao Zilong (played here by Andy Lau Tak-Wah) was one of the most interesting of the book, and that no one would ever be able to do justice to the complete epic in a single film anyway, no matter how long such a venture might be. Perhaps this was intended as some kind of jab against John Woo's 5-hour RED CLIFF, which was filmed at about the same time and tackles a much larger part of the story.

Whether Daniel Lee's script does justice even to the story of Zhao Zilong is debatable. The first hour of the 97-minute film (of which about five are opening and closing credits!) covers more than three decades in the life of the central character. Simplifications and gaps in the plot are perhaps unavoidable, but one cannot help to think that had Lee decided to add a half-hour or more to the running time the resulting film would be much smoother and more satisfying. As it is, many subordinate but intriguing characters, like the ones played by HK film legends Yueh Wah and Ti Lung, disappear far too quickly - they all die within minutes, off-screen! A romantic subplot involving Zhao and a pretty shadow puppeteer is covered in a single, rather touching scene - her character never to be seen again!
