Red Cliff is John Woo's modern retelling of one of the most exciting episodes in Romance of the Three Kingdoms. It features the rare alliance between two of the three big states, Wu and Xu against the powerful Wei. From the battle field to court political intrigues, the film is sure to leave the audience overwhelmed.

The road to victory is hardly smooth as the two allied states need to overcome their mutual mistrust of each other (at least temporarily) and the personal rivalry between the two ingenious military strategist Zhou Yu and Zhuge Liang needs to be put aside (albeit grudgingly).

The plot provides ample opportunities for John Woo to display his talents in constructing a grand stage for action. Aside from stunning effects and an engaging plot, the film is this year's summer highlight as it also spots a star studded cast consisting Tony Leung (Lust Caution) and Kaneshiro Takeshi (House of Flying Daggers).

John Woo's epic film Red Cliff is available as Blu-ray discs and region free DVD editions, the two versions are available for respectively US$ 37.90 and US$ 21.90 only.
