This afternoon, I watched Red Cliff (赤壁) Part 2. If you liked the first part (as I did), you'll enjoy the second part. Someone I know in Beijing said she was disappointed in the first part (how, I don't know - maybe she didn't like the changes from the actual stories?). I am always impressed by how hard combat was back in 'the old days' - how did anyone stay alive in a battle is a miracle in and of itself.
The scenery was good, the acting was well done, the camera angles, the music, the special effects were all top notch. About the only thing I didn't like was the way the cutscenes/ transitions worked; unlike the first movie, this one would have some sword cut the current scene as it changed to the next (almost like a computer game!).
Oh, and Taiwanese actress/ model, Lin Chiling (
林志玲) looks are pretty as usual. :)
