This epic Chinese action film from director John Woo (Mission Impossible 2, Face/Off), Red Cliff is based on the legendary battle in which a force of fifty thousand men defeated an army of nearly one million.

In the final days of the Han Dynasty, shrewd Prime Minister Cao Cao convinces his fickle Emperor the only way to unite China is to declare war on two neighbouring kingdoms.

The film was one of the most expensive ever made in China, and was edited down to one film for Western audiences. This is the first time it has been screened in full as two parts, over two consecutive Saturdays.
