I finished my fourth viewing.a short while a go. .It's based upon one of China's historic battles. One of the top ten movies of my life. . John Woo directs and his love for China and her history, His awe of their achievements is always apparent. I really like most of Mr. Woo pictures... But this...this is something completely different. A work of homage to the past. It's available on netflix OH NO! I started watching it again myself. Netflix now has the" Theatrical Version".. ."The Directors Cut" is way way better ...I would say worth waiting for.
