"How swift thy sword."

This reviewer has never been a fan of Asian cinema, and Hero is a film that further solidifies my neutral attitude towards film exports from Asian countries.

The film is seemingly inspired by Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon. Like Akira's film, I found Hero to suffer from the same flaws. First of all, the filmmakers poorly distinguish what is occurrin... read more

''My decision will cause the deaths of many and Your Majesty will live on. A dead man begs you to remember; a warrior's ultimate act is to lay down his sword.''

In ancient times China was divided into seven kingdoms. Qin, the king of the western most province, is under permanent threat of assassination attempts. His greatest fears are the warriors "Broken Sword", "Flying Snow" and "Sky". One day one of the magistrates of his kingdom enters the palace, claims that he defeated all three of the emperor's adversaries and tells his story; how he beat "Sky" in a duel and used the love between "Broken Sword" and "Flying Snow" to subdue them.

35 From 2: My Favorite Films From 2002 (35 movies items)

" A martial arts movie with beautifully colored fighting themes, an actual purpose in it's plot-line and more arrows than some metaphor that would contain a point about many more arrows that any situation would ever deem necessary. An epic kung-fu flick that is way more poetic than this or any other description of Hero could ever hope to be."
