This film musta cost an absolute bomb to make with a cast of literally 1000`s!!! But then hey, it is China and they have got a trillion or so extras to choose from over there!
Like other reviews have already said, this is the full version and if you want to watch it all in one go it`s deffo a Friday night or Saturday night viewing coz of the length of running time.
It`s a John Woo no expense spared serious kinda film, so if you`re into that then this is just for you, whereas if u prefer the `slapstick` humourous kind, don`t buy it.
Personally at this kinda price and you`re someone who likes depth and meaning to your Chinese films then you really can`t go wrong!
