In an early announcement to retailers, it has been revealed that Magnolia Home Entertainment will release John Woo's epic movie 'Red Cliff' on Blu-ray on March 30, 2010. This two-disc edition will include the 288-minute "international version", whereas the version of the film that was shown in the United States was a truncated two and a half hours. Other disc details are still unknown.
This title is already available in the UK and has been reviewed by Blu-ray.com.
Eh, thought the trailer looked pretty cool, but the movie was pretty disappointing. As for the 288 minutes, it could have, and should have been much much shorter. It's basically Troy with contrived Chinese storylines, philosophy, settings, even worse dialogue and a couple of bad miscasts, despite the # of notable Chinese actors. I hope others out there like it, but I for one thought it was a chore to finish and then wished I hadn't bothered.
