HERO (2002, CHINA)

(Post 36 of 50)

Some quick takes on the most relatively recent listings from the
1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die list

Hero is a film that is beautiful, colorful, philosophical, political, inspiring and filled with impressive action sequences. It was also one of the biggest non-English language film hits ever in the United States.

It seems obvious to compare Hero to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragaon, a film it shares many elements with. I must say on second viewing, I think I actually prefer Hero..though both would be on my 1001 watch list.
