Red Cliff movies, Awesome !!!

24 Feb

I remember when my brother has just got home from the cinema that day. He has just seen the Red Cliff 2 movie in the cinema, and he said that the movie was great. He had seen the Red Cliff 1 movie in the cinema a couple months before he saw the Red Cliff 2 movie. Since he said that, I was curious to see that movie. Within Asia, Red Cliff was released in two parts (Red Cliff 1 and Red Cliff 2) totaling over four hours in length. The first part was released in July 2008 and the second  in January 2009. The story from Red Cliff 1 continued in Red Cliff 2. Outside of Asia, a single 2,5 hours movie will be released in 2009. The Red Cliff movie was directed by John Woo, and stars Tony Leung, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Zhang Fengyi, Chang Chen, Zhao Wei, Hu Jun. Since I haven’t seen the Red Cliff 1 movie, I went out to buy the Red Cliff 1 DVD. After I and my sister saw the Red Cliff 1 in the DVD, we went to the cinema to see the Red Cliff 2 movie.

Awesome !!!  that’s what I thought when I saw the Red Cliff movies (both the Red Cliff 1 & the Red Cliff 2).

There were lots of strategies in these movies, but the most amazing one was the strategy where Zhuge Liang had to get 100,000 arrows in such a short time. The strategy on how he got those arrows was awesome !!!

Zhuge Liang also had the capabilities of reading the nature (the wind, etc) that helped them a lot to determine what strategies they’re going to use.

The capabilities of reading each other’s mind between Zhuge Liang and Zhou Yu was amazing. They could understand each other’s mind by only looking at each other’s face. I loved the scenes where they communicate their strategies by only seeing at each other’s face.

There was also a scene when both of them communicate to each other by playing music instruments. They didn’t talked at all. They only played the music instruments and they knew what each other was saying by only listening to the music they were playing.

If you haven’t seen this movie, you should see it.  It was awesome !!!
