Who knew what John Woo could do? (I could =not= resist that sentence.) “Do” would be an historical epic, and he did a great job.  I confess to knowing next to nothing about Chinese history and all the various Emperors and dynasties, but I learned something here.  The clashing armies and fleets must have been awesome in the theatre, but even on my home screen they’re impressive.

FF=2 (as with most Asian directors, Woo lets his martial arts sequences run too long)
