Epic homecoming


John Woo’s dream project of 18 years, Red Cliff, has finally come to the big screen.

JOHN Woo laughs out loud. I’ve just toldhim that I see the similarity betweenthe scene with Zhao Zhilong (Hu Jun)rescuing the infant heir to the Xu kingdom inRed Cliff, and Chow Yun-fat and the baby inHardboiled. The Hong Kong director smilesand nods in agreement when I also tell himthat I suspect he was influenced by Zhilong’sstory when he made Hardboiled.
