Great Historical Drama
7 April 2002 | by popedan2See all my reviews

Romance of the Three kingdoms is a must see for anybody who is interested in this period of Chinese history. Love, Drama, war, loyalty all make their presences felt in this epic. No small wonder why it is still around, even after almost 2000 years.
