John Woo's latest epic martial arts film.  wow, when they say epic they mean EPIC.  it's too bad that us westerners are going to get a two part story cut down into one flick.  according to wiki:

Quote
The western combined release trims the length of the movie from 280 minutes to 148 minutes, notable cuts include the entire defection storyline, the background and motivations to Zhuge Liang's plan to steal 100,000 arrows including the threat to his life and the early parts of Sun Shangxiang's infiltration. It also included trimming to the lengths of scenes predominantly forming part 1. However it also adds new material for example when a character's earlier introduction was cut then the later scene within which that character first appears in the western release features extended dialogue to introduce them, the 15 minute screentime tiger hunt is cut but the council chamber scene immediately after it features 2 minutes of additional argument between characters which provides the same character and plot advancement but in a more compact form, likewise an opening narration in English is provided to set the historical context whereas in the Asian release a briefer similar political situation context appears in scrolling form 10 minutes into the film.

Was wondering what the heck was happening with this, I've had "Red Cliff" and "Red Cliff 2: The Decisive Battle" in my Saved list on Netflix for forever it seems.

I'm pretty sure they are showing this for free on AT&T's HDNet channel.

Yeah, they are.  I saw about 5 minutes of it the other night... it looked cheesy to me.

Just to clarify, it's more of war epic than martial arts film.
