    Default John Woo's Chinese epic 'Red Cliff' is the biggest film on the planet



    For director John Woo, the movie "Red Cliff" was a lifetime in the making.

    The most expensive Chinese movie ever made -- funded by a legion of investors across Asia that could be mobilized only under Woo's banner -- the war epic took four and a half years to film. Woo's vision of bringing the 13th century Chinese novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" to the big screen, however, had been in the director's head even before he left to strike it big in Hollywood 16 years ago.

    During a recent interview with the Daily News in the bar of a trendy SoHo hotel, Woo, 63, traced his dream to his childhood growing up dirt poor in a violent Hong Kong slum. Back in those days, he used to sneak into the local movie theater as an escape.

    The trailer for the film:

    I dunno. The trailer reminds me of a lot of other Chinese war movies.
