A movie that I waited so long, starring by Tony Leung, Takeshi Kaneshiro & Lin Chi-ling whereby story started In 208 A.D., in the final days of the Han Dynasty, Prime Minster Cao Cao convinced the fickle Emperor Han the only way to unite all of China was to declare war on the kingdoms of Xu in the west and East Wu in the south. With this campaign, Xu & Wu are formed into alliance against eight hundreds thousands of Cao Cao’s military.
This part of the story is one of the best part in The Romance of Three Kingdoms, also known as The battle of Chibi 赤壁之戰 . The allied victory at Red Cliffs ensured the survival of Liu Bei and Sun Quan, gave them control of the Yangtze. In this movie, it only mention the pre-war part of the battle of Chibi, including how this battle started and how Zhuge Liang & Zhou Yu came to know each others.
I remember during school time, beside The Journey to the West, this is the other main novel that I repeated at least 3 times. I love zhuge Liang, CaoCao, Lui Bei, Zhang Fei and of course the unbeatable General Guan Yu & Zhao Ji Long
This movie is definitely better than the earlier movie I watch, The Mummy and I cant wait for the 2nd part of the movie to be release.
