John Woo’s “Red Cliff” Invades Blu-ray This March!

Red CliffI have to admit.  I did not know anything about the following title until yesterday.  We are all familiar with legendary cinema action master John Woo right?  Well anyway, his newest masterpiece is coming March 23rd to Blu-ray from Magnolia Home Entertainment.  And best of all, his new epic film Red Cliff appears to come in two different flavors on the Blu-ray format.  One will be a US Theatrical Version and the other is billed as the Original International Version Containing Part I & Part II.   Since I am no expert on the film I will let the short press release below speak for itself.

From Legendary Cinema Action Master John Woo Comes A New Epic Like No Other As RED CLIFF, Arrives on Blu-ray Disc And DVD March 23 From Magnolia Home Entertainment As Part of the Six Shooter Film Series.  Both the US Theatrical Version and the Original International Version Containing Part I & Part II with a combined runtime of almost five hours will be made available on Blu-ray Disc and DVD.

“Red Cliff is a legendary filmmaker’s visual symphony.”
Wall Street Journal

“A formidable prelude to an epic battle with resplendent effects and action spectacles.”
Hollywood Reporter 


In 208 A.D., the Han Dynasty Emperor grants permission to the greedy General Cao Cao to form a movement that will pulverize two warlords who stand in his way.  The warlords, Liu Bei and Sun Quan, are sworn enemies but know their only hope for survival is to band together and counter the attack. Although outnumbered by Cao Cao’s vast and fast approaching army, the warlords put their rivalry behind them and end up surprising all those who doubted their small brigade.  
One of the most expensive film productions in Chinese cinema and the highest grossing box office, RED CLIFF garnered six Hong Kong Film ‘09 Awards including Best Art Direction, Best Costume & Make Up Design, Best Visual Effects and Best Supporting Actress. Back together for the first time since the classic Hard Boiled, RED CLIFF reunites legendary action-cinema master Woo and international superstar Leung.


ONE HECK OF A PROMOTER!!! Also a Dreamer, Producer, Agent of Love, Film Lover, Writer of Screenplays and a Devoted Apostle to all things Ford Mustangs (the real ones with V8's!). Some of my favorite films include FIGHT CLUB, MOULIN ROUGE, THE DARK KNIGHT, STAR WARS alongside television shows such as SEINFELD, 24, SANFORD & SON and even the often loathed in the geek community BIG BANG THEORY. Outside of my three lives I live I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and our three girls (of the furry kind).

    I’m game! The Chinese are highly underrated for their filmmaking. Most people know “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and little else. “House of Flying Daggers” is a pretty decent piece that comes to mind, albeit the fight scene at the end is completely over the top, but it’s entertaining nonetheless. Several of these films are. Unfortunately, many get passed over in the U.S. market.
