Movie Review: Red Cliff *****


We caught red cliff last night at GV grand... sandwiched between two ang mo couples. i leaned over to chris..

me: dear, they will understand meh? chinese history nei...
chris: -.- got subtitles wat!

well, i enjoyed the show v much. although i should normally feel v sleepy at that hour, i was totally engaged and it was not because ZHUGE LIANG is the deliciously-handsome-most-gorgeous-guy-who-ever-walked-the-planet TAKESHI KANESHIRO (see left). the battle scenes are exciting and u can't help but marvel at how smart we chinese are ^^ oh oh, look out for GUAN YU... i think he is UBER COOL.... he will appear, look damn cool with his dark face and fierce eyebrows then ta ta ta ta ta kill everyone in his path with his long sabre... WA! there was this scene when they fought CAO CAO's (see right) army using the BAGUA formation then the heroes one by one appeared to slash, cut, slice, throw, punch, hurl the bad guys... WA! the scene was super exciting... when GUAN YU appeared, i wanted to clap and cheer nei.... but other people didn't... so not supportive one. so i just lightly clap clap, can't hear one... so not shiok.

well, LIN CHILING (see left), suposedly the most beautiful woman in taiwan, looked pretty but didn't speak much and when she did, sounded a tad too saccharin sweet for me but i'm sure the guys all went weak in the knees and cursed the censorship board that they cut off THE scene with TONY LEUNG who played ZHOU YU (see right)... tsk tsk tsk...

definitely worth watching if you don't mind that their version of history isn't quite accurate...

but but but... the ending.... *slap forehead* is super HA?? we were all like HA???????? felt v cheated by the ending....

oh, did i mention that this ZHUGE LIANG is THE MOST good looking ZHUGE LIANG in ALL versions of romance?
