RED CLIFF opens with power hungry Prime Minister-turned-General Cao Cao (Zhang Fengyi) seeking permission from the Han dynasty Emperor to organize a southward-bound mission designed to crush two troublesome warlords that stand in his way, Liu Bei (You Yong) and Sun Quan (Chang Chen). As the expedition gets under way, Cao Cao's troops rain destruction on Liu Bei's army, forcing the latter to retreat. Liu Bei's military strategist Zhuge Liang (Takeshi Kaneshiro) knows that their only hope for survival is to form an alliance with rival warlord Sun Quan, and reaches out to Sun Quan’s trusted advisor, war hero Zhou Yu (Tony Leung). Vastly outnumbered by Cao Cao’s fast approaching, brutal army, the rebel warlords band together to mount a heroic campaign unrivalled in history that changes the face of China forever. Contains the full 282 minute extended cut of the film.
En l'an 208, le premier ministre du royaume de Wei convainc l'empereur que la seule façon d'unifier la Chine est de déclarer la guerre aux royaumes de Shu et de Wu. Ces deux royaumes décident de former une alliance pour combattre l'envahisseur.

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 .
C'est un film à connaître, découvrir absolument,JOHN WOO est un metteur en scène fabuleux . Une mise en scène impressionnante, de très grande envergure. Le découpage, les scènes, le scénario l'histoire issu de L' Histoire Chinoise, TOUT est bien.
Le jeu des comédien est captivant, excellent. Très bons comédiens. Ceux-ci se glissent dans les personnages de cette Époque, témoins et acteurs de ces enjeux, de ces tensions et passions souvent exacerbées. Film historique (pour ceux que cela rebuterait) certes, MAISd'un " suspense " incroyable qui ACCROCHE NOTRE ESPRIT jusqu'à la fin . Jamais de temps morts, chaque scène ou passage captive notre attention et notre intérêt.
Il faut noter aussi, l'humour si plaisant et toujours à propos, sans lourdeur, ni inutilité. Un régal de ce coté là en plus de toutes les qualités de ce film.
Ces reconstitutions de l' Histoire de la Chine Ancienne sont passionnantes. Rien n'égale pour moi, ces films grandioses, au niveau des films à grands déploiements, hormis les films japonais tout également exceptionnels.

For those who have seen the shorter version of Red Cliff and for those who were left wanting more, the extended version will not disappoint you. For roughly 5 hours, you will be enthralled and have your breath taken away by the extra footage.
Some of the sub plots as well as other story details that were previously unavailable in the shorter version become available in this extended version.
"Red Cliff" is also know as "The Battle of Chi Bi" for those who are familiar with the books entitled The Romance of the Three Kingdoms and for those who are fans of Koei's Dynasty Warriors game franchise. Gamers will find the movie that more enjoyable as they would be able to recognize famous Chinese warriors and strategists from the game, based on real life people from China's past.
The extended version is well worth your time if you enjoyed the shorter version. This is one epic movie not to be missed.
