Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Returning to his roots after a stint in Hollywood, Woo has made the most expensive film in mainland Chinese history, a pleasantly traditional picture that marks a new direction for one of the world's premier action maestros.
Fresh: A formidable prelude to an epic battle with resplendent effects and action spectacles.
Fresh: The director's magnum opus.
Fresh: Overlong but ambitious, Woo proves he's as good at tactical maneuvers as he is at close-quarters combat.
Can we get the International Version?
It would be even better to have the option to buy/rent the International Version. To see the movie the way John Woo had intended all of us to see it.
From start to finish this movie amazed me every second. The dialouge is short so the subtitle reading is easy to deal with. If your lookin for a war movie...this is the one for you!!!
AMAZING! MUST SEE!
While this movie might seem slow, it has the perfect mix of drama and action. The people are all real, and the briliance of tactics are unbelivable. And there's the MUSIC! That's simply amazing. I would defiantely recomend buying it. It's more than worth it!
