Major disappointment after waiting for so long for it to come to Dallas! I still recommend seeing it, but it is really only for people who enjoy HK movies.

I still recommend seeing it, but it is really only for people who enjoy HK movies. I was expecting a new type of movie by Woo combining the techniques he learned in the US with his HK style. Another notch up in movie making like when he came to the US. Instead, it is as if he changed to someone else HK style devoid of his usual kinetic energy. There was not one moment in this movie that said "John Woo" has been here to me. For a HK movie it is pretty friggin' incredible and I have to admit that my score, instead of being weighted a little higher because it is a HK movie, is weighted a little lower because of my disappointment in the new Woo. Have a Merry Christmas! Expand

Après son "séjour" hollywoodien (Broken Arrow, Volte/Face, Mission : Impossible 2, Paycheck), John Woo rentre enfin au pays en nous livrant un film chinois. Et ce que l'on peut lui reconnaîtreAprès son "séjour" hollywoodien (Broken Arrow, Volte/Face, Mission : Impossible 2, Paycheck), John Woo rentre enfin au pays en nous livrant un film chinois. Et ce que l'on peut lui reconnaître après ces années d'exil, c'est bien l'efficacité de chacun de ses films. Pour cause, Les 3 Royaumes est un film pour le moins spectaculaire et grand spectacle (le réalisateur, bien que sa mise en scène peu laisser à désirer par moment avec surdose de ralentis, donne ici un bon effet), avec les moyens du bord (costumes, effets spéciaux, accessoires...). Rajoutons à cela un casting honorable et le tour et jouer! Enfin presque... Un défaut vient pourtant assombrir le tout. Un défaut que l'on doit aux producteurs, qui ont voulu raccourcir le film (de 4h à 2h30). Résultat : un film charcuté (scénario sans âme, trop tourné vers l'action, montage brouillon...)! Bref, il est dommage de voir que le film aurait pu être bien mieux si, une fois de plus, on avait laissé le réalisateur s'amuser jusqu'au bout! Expand

Having watched quite a few epic battle films. I can safely say this, has the best, and I can't really see anything topping it. It rises above films like Gladiator, Lord of the rings, and Troy, because of the sheer creativity of the battle scenes.
