After all the 5 star ratings and effusive praise washing over this film, I was rather disappointed overall. Apart from one or two highlights (the opening tree climbing scene being one) I wasn't that impressed as I thought some of it rather naive, but given its age perhaps I am being a bit harsh. For me, however, John Woo's Red Cliff, (and one or two others), although a differing culture and era, is absolutely miles ahead in overall quality, dialogue and action scenes.
