The Sicilian Clan (2013) I haven't seen a lot of his older stuff, but his American ventures have been quite entertaining; but what I've enjoyed most was his last epic, 'Red Cliff'."

The Sicilian Clan (2011) He was the go-to action director but lately has spent a lot of time on the 'Red Cliff' saga, and Americans are probably wanting a return soon."
