I just caught Red Cliff 2 over the weekend.
Despite the hype, I'm not that impressed because they changed at least 40% of the original story.
I left the theatre with a bitter taste in the mouth and with the feeling that it was turned into a rather mindless Chinese Kung Fu war movie with plenty of explosions.
No major spoilers here but little nonsensical things like
1. Liu Bei jumping and flying around really spoiled the movie for me.
Granted Liu Bei could fight as he did hold off Lu Bu along with Guan Yu and Zhang Fei in the original story but he was never that kind of a "superhuman" warrior.
2. Also, the famous pardon of Cao Cao by Guan Yu was changed by the director!
3. Lots and lots more but not listed here if case you want to watch the movie
It was a combination of these nonsense which spoiled my enjoyment of the show.
But to be fair to the director, it was not 100% bad. The famous scene whereby Kong Ming borrowed 100k arrows from Cao Cao was masterfully rendered.
