This film left a lasting impression on me and I was so glad I saw it on the big screen, because it was absolutely beautiful. The strong use of colour is something that sticks out every time you see this film. As you would expect, there are excellent fighting scenes throughout, but it's the locations that left me awe-struck on most occasions.

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."
