Red cliff 2!
10 January 2009 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

The final battle is here! It continues from where it last stop. It also shows flashbacks to those who forget the story of part one. There is still John Woo's slow motion. There is a big epic battle, probably the biggest battle scene you have ever seen in a Chinese movie. But, somehow, I am slightly disappointed with it. I guess I would have expected more in the battle scene or at least, a better showdown with the two characters (I can't say who) at the last part. Despite the minor thing, it is still good as I am entertained with the intensity in it.

The story: It continues where the part one stops. As they are all getting ready for the last major war, you don't expect to see much characters' development. You get to expect to see cunning tricks played by both sides. As the first part, there is some humour in it. The battle scene is probably one of the best battle scenes I have seen. It is unlike other Chinese war movies and probably Hollywood ones too, the battle is extended and long. In other war movies, you just see cuts of the battle. Acting is still good with some of their humorous face expressions.

Overall: Everyone should give Red cliff a watch. It is unique, different from other war movies. Those, who watched the first part, obviously should watch this too. I will wait for the box set DVD featuring both movies in. The first movie DVD has no special features.
