Red Cliff trailer

Oct. 2, 2009by: Paul Tassi

John Woo is back to his ass-kicking roots with RED CLIFF, a sweeping historical epic that reunites him with Tony Leung for the first time since HARD BOILED. The film is based on a legendary battle that effectively ended the Han Dynasty and features more massive armies of Chinese warriors than HERO, and I wasn’t sure that was even possible.

Check out the first English language trailer below, even though all we can really do with a movie like this is provide a booming voiceover to let us know what’s going on. Look for RED CLIFF November 20th, 2009.

Extra Tidbit: That girl's name is Chiling? Awesome.

The original movies are both amazing, but I'm not sure how effective they'll be as a single pared-down film. I'm guessing they'll cut out most of the first one, as it was mainly about establishing the characters and relationships. Even so, the battle sequences are intense, and should be great to see on the big screen.

I saw this...or at least part of it...

I rented this from my library a couple of weeks back.

I thought the story took it's time getting to the point. However, there were people in my Chinese class that were saying the film was pretty good, so I may have to check it out again.

I did hear part II isn't as good, though.
