"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.''

A series of Rashomon-like flashback accounts shape the story of how one man defeated three assassins who sought to murder the most powerful warlord in pre-unified China.

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.

The two most memorable scenes of this fil... read more

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.

" I've been wanting to watch Hero for a long time, and I was very happy to see it pop up on Netflix. Truly beautiful. The story could have been nothing and I still would have liked it. But the story was interesting, fun to watch unfold, and had plenty of food for thought. That paired with beautiful choreography, it was a real treat to watch. A classic! "
