Red Cliff 2
I just watched this movie yesterday at Emporium Pluit XXI. Never thought this movie will come out this early...
Just like the first one, this movie is stunning! Well, i like the first part better but this is definitely almost as good as the first one.
Continuing from the last scene of Red Cliff 1, where the bloodiest and biggest battle of Sam Kok took place, this movie shows us the role of Zhuge Liang and Zhou Yu in winning this battle. Actually, Red Cliff is a Sam Kok movie that emphasizes on these two very very cool character as the key player in the battle of Red Cliff. That's what make this movie interesting. Not just some bloody war movies but there's a brilliant tactic behind every move.
One of the best part is when Zhou Yu's wife, Xiao Qiao, came to se Cao Cao to hold him from attacking Red Cliff. Her effort made the Wu army manage to get ahold of a better wind and finally defeat Cao Cao.
That woman, Xiao Qiao, is the most beautiful woman in that time.. Actually, I think she is the perfect portrait of a wife hahahahaha
