If "broad sense" you mean the battle of chi bi happened historically and that the major players were mentioned, then yes

There were lots more tension between Wu and Shu because both knew that Shu was opportunistic and basically free riding on Wu. It was alliance of circumstances which made the story fascinating. For starters never heard of the princess Sun nor the strategist Zhu GeLiang can fight.

Well by that logic you might as well say the same thing about The Bridge on the River Kwai.

Accurate or not, a film can still be an excellent piece of entertainment.

Agree on PQ or AQ for entertainment value but why attempt to reinvent the wheel (and a bad attempt) when you have a perfectly good story that already been tested for centuries and had broad appeal? Hence my comparison with LOTR

My objective is to clarify the storyline of the classic is not so weak.

Except there are many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many retellings of Romance of the Three Kingdoms already out there. There's nothing thin or poor or weak about the story in Red Cliff and I for one am glad that they actually did something different.

I quite frankly don't know which Blu-Ray edition of Red Cliff I and II to get. Just sayin'.

You can't go wrong with the North American release of the 2-part international version.
