Red Cliff is a beautifully crafted epic, with battle scenes of such scope, style, and detail it puts most Hollywood efforts to shame.
Don’t be put off by the subtitles or 5 hour run-time either. The film is well-paced with many clever and touching moments as it builds towards its climactic end, and does not feel too long at all. It pains me to think what they must have cut for the single disc version, which is a full 140 minutes shorter.
Often on special for $20 – $30, at that range the blu-ray is great value too. So do yourself a favour and watch this movie the way it is meant to be seen!
