About This DVD
A Romance of Three Kingdoms is adapted from one of the most famous Chinese classic novels with the same title by Luo Guanzhong, and based on the history of the Three Kingdoms period (220AD-280AD). The TV serial describes the intricate and tense struggles for the throne among three powerful political forces: Liu Bei, Cao Cao and Sun Quan, and focuses on various great talents and bold strategy during that period. It is an epic times that carries many different outstanding heroes. To reproduces his historical period, China Central Television spent nearly four years on shooting the serial with 84 episodes, and a great deal of funds, manpower & material resources.
The accuracy of its storyline makes it a good guide to Chinese History. Also, with thousands of actors and horses involved in the making of this film, the battle scenes looked very realistic. The song lyrics are representative of the story. Those who understand Chinese will appreciate these poetic songs and series even more. The casting was also well done. The portrayal of Guan Yu was very close to what people usually thought of. The smart, kind and intelligent Zhuge Liang, the dumb hero Lu Bu, the wicked yet smart Zhao Zhao, the kind but indecisive Liu Bei, and other characters were all well played by the actors.
