We're watching "Red Cliff" right now on Netflix DVD (the two-part, 5-hour version, not the compressed 2 hour version originally released in the States). It's marvelous - beautiful scenery and cinematography, plenty of martial arts but also some very quiet and touching moments where Woo isn't afraid to let the camera linger and the actors are completely in their element. I don't know how historically accurate it is, but it's a great story.
