One of the best of its kind, "Hero" is a martial arts pic with bright colors, terrific fight scenes, and a complex narrative that relies on dishonesty and flashbacks inside of flashbacks.

Hero is a unique martial arts film - one which balances ferocious action with beautiful and poetic visual sequences. The color palette is unbelievable and every frame of the film could be framed and hung as a still image. The film also supports its visual beauty with some powerful acting and thematic importance.

If you are into the 'Crouching Tiger' style foreign action films, then look no further.

Words cannot begin to praise this movie. Simply gorgeous. The art direction, cinematography and choreography elevate the intriguing, unfolding plot.

I had to drop my rating of this film after watching it again. It's beautifully shot, maybe the best I've ever seen, but something was missing. The special effects are geat, in the vain of Crouching Tiger, but overall, it's not as good.

Rewatched (again) this flick and it certainly is great. It has amazing photography, and perfect balanced mixture of Cruching tiger/Rashomon. I think will be hard to find so many great actors in the same movie (having Jet, Tony, Maggie, Donie and Ziyi together is way too much) Awesome story and a great Tan Dun score. Great aproach of eastern cinema and culture to the west.

Another great martial arts film in the vein of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It succeeds by telling the same story from different vantage points, the use of color is very important. The wire fighting is top notch, beautiful cinematography
