Three Kingdoms: Resurrection of the Dragon
VarietyAsiaOnline.com, by Derek Elley source: http://www.varietyasiaonline.com/content/view/6407/
«Action, staged by Hung and fellow Hong Kong vet Yuen Tak, and deftly supported by CGI done in South Korea, largely avoids the purely fantastic. Reported $20 million tab is all up on the screen.

Publicity claims the script was inspired by Chapter 92 of the historical chronicle "Three Kingdoms," titled "Zhao Zilong's Army Confined in Phoenix Heights."»
LoveHKfilm, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews_2/three_kingdoms.html
«Solid in a flashy, commercial, and empty manner. Purists of Three Kingdoms lore will be annoyed, and those who seek quality cinema may find the film lacking, but the undemanding may still enjoy the spectacle in all its dry, canned glory. »
Swifty Writing, by The Great Swifty source: http://swiftywriting.blogspot.com/2008/05/swifty-reviews-three-kingdoms.html
«Narratively, it's a little weak. You don't get to know the characters too well because of the voiceover narration (of Sammo Hung's character) and its use of montage to push the plot forward. It's like, you just jump to a few decades later before you've even familiarize yourself with anyone. But visually, this film is beautiful to look at.»
A Nutshell Review, by Stefan S source: http://anutshellreview.blogspot.com/2008/04/three-kingdoms-resurrectio~~~on.html
«On the whole, it's aesthetically beautiful but ringing really hollow.»
beyondhollywood.com, by James Mudge source: http://www.beyondhollywood.com/three-kingdoms-resurrection-of-the-drag~~~view-2/
«Still, with a film obviously designed for designed for current commercial appeal this is not too severe a criticism, and “Three Kingdoms” basically manages to tick all the right boxes. Whilst not convincing or strong enough to offer a viable alternative to “Red Cliff”, or indeed “Warlords”, it nevertheless stands as a well-made piece of entertainment in its own right, above average by the standards of the genre and is recommended for fans of Chinese historical epics or the cast.»
http://www.moviexclusive.com/review/threekingdoms/threekingdoms.htm source: movieXclusive.com, by Richard Lim Jr
«Somehow it felt that director Daniel Lee had gotten away with the patchy story works due to the fact that he had a group of fine actors giving fine performance. Even in minor supporting roles such as Vanness Wu’s Zhao Biao and Ti Lung’s Guan Yu, it felt that their real life experience and attitude seemly helped contribute a natural aura to the character in a short span of screen time.»
Time Out New York source: http://www.timeout.com/film/newyork/reviews/85343/Three_Kingdoms-Resur~~~on.html
«Three Kingdoms’ complex story lines, filled with love, honor, betrayal and the other usual suspects, complement a lot of general ass-kicking that will surely delight any martial-arts fan looking for a fix.»
