Red Cliff (parts 1 and 2)  starring, among others, Tony Leung and Takeshi Kaneshiro


Note: R-rated – it is a war movie so there is plenty of violence.

The movie is based on an actual battle in 208 AD that may well be the largest naval battle ever in terms of combatants involved. There are ongoing debates of where exactly the battles (there were really three actions) were fought, but the victory by the two allied southern warlords, Liu Bei and Sun Quan, over Cao Cao, the northern warlord, strongly influenced Chinese history for centuries.
