China Unleashed, April 17 2010
John Woo has finally delivered a masterpiece that combines his mastery of storytelling and action, and the latest in film technology with a deep love for his Chinese heritage.
This complex story of one fateful military encounter in 208AD has costumes, sets, weapons, and set pieces that are eye-popping, especially in Blu-Ray, and characters who are more than just symbols.
CG technology does not detract from the storytelling and the deployment of some 1500 Chinese soldiers in land and naval battles is spectacular. The sheer enthusiasm of all involved manifests in the astonishing power and beauty this 5-hour-long film .
