Red Cliff review
"China is again at war, the prime minster (Cao Cao) asks the emperor of Han to march to war against Liu Bei and Sun Quan."
In the early third century, the land of Wu is invaded by the warlord Cao Cao and his million soldiers. The ruler of Wu, Sun Quan, calls on the rival warlord Liu Bei for help, but their two armies are still badly outnumbered. However, the Wu strategist Zhou Yu sees that Cao Cao's army is unused to battling on the sea, which may just give them a chance if they can exploit this weakness properly. Written by rmlohner
The movie really begins very nice with a interesting tune of music and beautiful background. At the beginning you see Cao Cao asking to go to war with the army of the imperium. He was then not so strong but because the emperor gave him what he wants: complete control of the imperial army he also seized control of the Han empire and went for ward to destory Liu Bei and Sun Quan the ruler of the Soutland. He wants to unite China into "One" and he will do all that it takes. But he is also secretly in love ...
I really recomend you see this movie. Liu Bei and Sun Quan are seen as Rebels to Cao Cao who he thinks want to start a rebellion. Whle this is just a way for him to go to war and get more land.
The guy in the while is the miletary tactican of Liu Bei, he prove himself many times spotting weaknesses in the enmey army.
