AmazonUK - John Woo's Red Cliff 1&2 ($18.57 shipped)
 
AmazonUK has Red Cliff [Special Edition][Blu-ray] [2008] on sale for 8.98. After removing VAT, adding shipping, and using AmazonUK's currency conversion, the final price is $18.57 shipped to the USA.

The Special Edition blu-ray contains both Red Cliff I and Red Cliff II. It's region free, but you have to skip a PAL trailer.

I bit on this, I've heard way too many good things to pass it up!

Dang, it dropped since I bought it last week. Oh well, totally worth it. This Blu ray is apparently reference quality as well, I'm looking forward to getting mine in the next day or so.

Is this really Parts 1 and 2 or is it the edited single movie version?

Also, not a fan of hard subs.

Sounds like it's both films.


Run Time: 293 minutes
Lame as it is, isn't the 1 film version a USA only release?

Re: AmazonUK - John Woo's Red Cliff 1&2 ($18.57 shipped)
 
it's listed as being 293 minutes, which is the full version. The reviewer on blu-ray.com says that the UK market will also be getting a shorter version. But this particular BD is a 2 disc set. Looks to be the full movie. Just noticed that the review lists the movie as 286 minutes.

Wow, got mine already! Can't wait to watch

Goddamit. Mine shipped on Nov 25th and I still haven't received it. My expected arrival date was Dec 4, so I e-mailed them and told them that date had passed and now they are asking me to wait until Dec 16th. What is that all about? I hope customs didn't pick it up, that could hold it up for weeks.

Does it have 7.1 audio like the HK release? Or just 5.1 as the Amazon UK page says?

Also, is there an option to turn the subtitles off?

TIA!

I'm holding off buying this until I see how the US Blu-ray stacks up to it. The 2-Disc International Version is coming out on March 30th...I'm a patient guy:)
