Customer Reviews


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!

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.


One of the best war epics I have ever seen. Two hours of great cinematography with detailed battle scenes. John Woo produces a magical experience for all to see.
