Having been somewhat disappointed with 'Three Kingdoms',which also stars Andy Lau,I had reduced expectations for this film which deals with a similar theme.
Well,'Battle of Wits' is in a different league.
An intelligent,literate,script,which allows actors to develop their characters,is alligned with spectacular battle scenes which are not allowed to overwhelm,and ruin,the storyline.
The only downside to this Blu-ray disc is the Picture Quality.
I don't know if it is a poor transfer,or the cinematography is deliberately muted,but the result is a softish image.
However,five stars for an excellent,spectacular,well acted film.
