I think it was geared towards the Tony Leung fans that wanted to see him get it on... Sadly, I don't believe I've seen a movie with him in it that there wasn't some form of sex/love scene. I'm sure there's a movie out there...

I've heard of that movie but never seen it. It's a movie series, correct?

Three movies. The Departed is an inferior (IMO) remake of the first.

Saw it awhile back, and I thought it was decent. The Gan Ning calvary scene was cool, that is pretty much how I envisioned Lu Bu slaughtering people left, and right during his battles.

I wasn't particularly fond of the Red Cliff film. My problem is I keep comparing it to the 1993 version, and the Liu Bei, Zhuge Liang, and Zhou yu that was chosen for the TV series did their characters so well. In my opinion the Red Cliff Liu Bei and Zhuge Liang were really bad :(.

My favourite media adaptation of 3 kingdoms, because it based on history more than the novel, and Zhou Yu is the protagonist! [THUMBS UP SIGN]

I'm currently waiting for an amazon delivery with the Blue Ray full version of this. I've only ever watched the abridged version and that was when I was ill and not really functioning so excited to actually watch it for real.
