Red Cliff

Any film that gets an R-rating due to “sequences of EPIC warfare” deserves some notice.

Though he kind of disappeared from American cinema after the disaster that 2003’s Paycheck, John Woo has kept busy and, in 2008, wrote and directed Red Cliff, which, despite critical response, is only coming to America now. Feeling more like a Yimou Zhang film than classic Woo, the film takes place during in early third century China as the three kingdoms, Han, Xu and East Wu, begin a war that culminates as the incredible Battle of Red Cliff.

It should be noted that the film, which was originally more than four-and-a-half hours long, will be cut to just under two-and-a-half, so expect some extra plot-lines if you see it in theaters and then buy it on DVD. Check out the trailer after the jump.
